About twenty of our supporters attended last night’s Port of Lopez meeting. The Port commission thoughtfully moved the venue to Woodmen Hall to accommodate the large crowd, and allowed over an hour of testimony on the Clure access issue.
The attorney for the Clures, Michael Murray, spoke and threatened a lawsuit on very vague grounds and then claimed the Clures “own” an easement to Shark Reef Road from Meadow Lane—which caused quite a bit of confusion as this alleged easement has never appeared in any prior surveys. The Port voted to deny an easement to the Clure property at this time, and will consult with their attorneys and surveyors again to make sure they have the correct surveys and legal analysis before making a final decision.
The Port will also conduct further research on FAA restrictions in the airport safety zones, which cover both Meadow and Eagles Roost Lanes.
