4A Wednesday, March 18, 2015 Feather River Bulletin in il from page 1A a trail on PG&E land at Bucks Lake. The supervisors had their own concerns with the project -- largely who would maintain the completed trails, "The county would be taking on a great deal of responsibility," County Counsel Craig Settlemire told the board. Supervisor Sherrie Thrall led the discussion about possible impacts on the county, both in terms of costs and staff time. "I'm sitting here knowing we can't do it," she said, noting that the planning department doesn't have the time or resources to conduct a necessary environmental study, nor does the facilities department have the time or staff to maintain a trail. "We can no longer pay for charity work out of the general fund," she said• Supervisor Lori Simpson, whose district encompasses Bucks Lake, noted that the project had been proposed before she took office and said that it had "been thrown on me and the facilities director." Simpson said the issue has turned out to'be controversial. "I thought the trail was an easy one, but I guess not," she said. Goss said it was obvious that questions remained to be answered. "I need to see it in writing," Thrall said. "If I seem like I . don't trust them... I've seen the Stewardship Council's mission and goals change so many times." . Public Works Director Bob Perreault suggested that a written commitment be sought from the Stewardship Council to commit to the funding before the board takes any other action. The supervisors voted unanimously to adopt Perreault's recommendation. Public weighs in About a dozen people spoke during the meeting and most, but not all, fell into two camps -- outdoor enthusiasts in favor of the trails and cabin owners opposed. "I think this is a wonderful opportunity," said cabin owner Mike Price, who described himself as someone who enjoys all forms of outdoor recreation, both motorized and nonmotorized. "I think the concerns can be mitigated and I hope this project proceeds." Another man, who described himself as a Bucks Lake homeowner and hiker, said, "I think this is an absolutely wonderful idea. A lot of people are excited about this opportunity." Delaine Fragnoli falls into that category. She told the supervisors that part of her work history included writing about trails so she is able to view the situation from different angles. "This is a unique opportunity that a private landowner says, 'Build a trail apd we'll pay for it.'" She agreed that cabin owner concerns could be mitigated• Dustin Doyle is a member of the Bucks Creek Cabin Owners Association, which includes 35 cabin owners located between Bucks Lake Lodge and the bridge. "The cabin owners are opposed to that trail," he said and enumerated a number of reasons including a loss of serenity, damage to their water supply and sewer systems, and liability issues. Durbin Sayers, president of the homeowners group, echoed the concerns about serenity and solitude and added the topic of the potential for increased "mischief and vandals." Kyle Felker is another cabin • owner with a list of concerns, which he presented to the supervisors in writing, but also reiterated at the meeting. He described himself as very concerned with the "unknown baggage." Felker worried that the addition of nonmotorized trails could lead to a ban onmotorized vehicles in other areas, as is being proposed near Lake Davis. "With all due respect to some ownership concerns, this seems like a no-brainer," said Quincy resident Jim McIntyre. "You've got the money; you've got the land." The supervisors plan to discuss the topic again next month• DESIGN,from page 1A the building's roof. "I'm going to make it hard to get on to the roof, and I'm going to put lots of cameras up there so we can get a good look at anyone going up there," he said. Banner projects The committee reviewed two banner projects to adorn the light posts in downtown Quincy. One, jointly presented by Feather River College and the Quincy Chamber of Commerce, was approved in concept, but presenters were asked to return with final designs. The banners would uniformly read "Welcome to Quincy." Four designs were presented -- one for each season., The plan calls for 22 banners to be hung on both sides of Main Street between Court Street and Fillmore Street. Kathy Beach presented the second banner project, tiffed "Highway of Heroes." Each banner will feature a picture of a local person serving in the military with the slogan "Land of the Free Because of the Brave" above them. The project calls for the banners to hang on Main Street and Lawrence Street downtown, and on Main Street in East Quincy during the month of November. The committee approved the design. Beach's next step will be to get a required encroachment permit and the go-ahead from Caltrans and the county. Courthouse art A request to set up a chain-link fence and hang artwork on the courthouse plaza was denied by the committee. John Sheehan and Laura Eichenberger, representing Main Street Artists Gallery, asked for permission to set up a display similar to the one that hung on the chain-link fence surrounding the burned downtown lot last summer• Because construction will likely occur over the summer, the artists cannot use the same location this year. Instead, the group hoped to use the courthouse plaza to hang its 3-by-5-foot plastic posters. The main objection the committee had to the proposal was the use of a chain-link fence in as prominent location as the courthouse. The committee's design guidelines outlaw the use of chain link. The committee suggested that the artists group re-present the idea using different backing to hold its posters in a different location, like the Dame Shirley Plaza• • l: sory counc FIRST TIME MEMBER Sit VINGSI *Pass SAVE *500 on a Single Annual Pass* SAVE *1000 on a Family Annual Pass* includes use of practice facility & golf cart For more IMmataUon, please contact the golf shop at: 530.836.0394 Postal Service= USPS (No. 188-550.)
