We had two moratorium’s on mineral extractions in place, but they both expired and the town put an ordinance in place to not allow mineral extractions off of private roads with 100 or more dwellings (Lakeside has 100 or more dwellings that use it). What the applicant is doing is trying to build a new road parallel to Lakeside to circumvent this ordinance.
