Feather River Bulletin Wednesday, Nov. 19, 2014 3A Public weighs in on pro)posed Bu,:ks Lake trail James Wilson Staff Writer jwilson@plumasnews.com [ The board room at the  Plumas County Library was packed Nov. 12, as Plumas County Supervisor Lori Simpson and Facilities Director Deny Sawchuk led a public input meeting to discuss the proposed trail system to be built on Pacific Gas and Electric Co. land at Bucks Lake. A mix of mountain bikers, equestrians, hikers and Bucks Lake Cabin owners showed up to let their voices be heard. Nearly everyone in attendance was in favor of the proposed system. Nonetheless, concerns were raised. A little over a year ago, the Stewardship Council, a private nonprofit formed in 2004 as part of a PG&E settlement, made funds available for the Sierra Buttes Trail Stewardship to conduct a feasibility study on building a trail on PG&E land. The Board of Supervisors approved the study around a month ago. Simpson and Sawchuk scheduled the meeting to see what concerns, if any, people had before any construction began. The proposed trail would connect the Bucks Creek Loop Trail to other areas, including Lakeshore, Rocky Ridge, Inspiration Point and Big Trees. The proposed nonmotorized trail system would run 6.19 miles in length. Currently, the only trail in the immediate Bucks Lake Area is the Bucks Creek Loop Trail. Though it's not expected to attract more tourism, the proposed trail system would give existing lakegoers more recreational opportunities. Almost everyone in attendance expressed their excitement and support for the project. Mike and Barbara Price, who own a cabin at Bucks Lake, said they looked forward to the trail system's completion. "I see a lot of positive aspects to this," said Mike. "I see mountain biking as an emerging sport. More trails will be utilized, and it's safer to get off the road and on a single-track." Similarly, Lakeshore Resort owner Dewitt Henderson voiced his support, as did cabin owner Marlene Rold. Not everyone felt these sentiments, however- Dustin Doyle strongly opposed the project. Doyle leases a cabin from PG&E that sits below the road near the lake before the lodge. Doyle's main concerns were of an influx of parking near his house, a lack of privacy and the security of his well, located up the hill. The proposed trail would be on the hill, across the road from Doyle's house and the other cabins on the lake. Multiple suggestions for solutions were offered to Doyle, but he felt that none of the suggestions would remedy his concerns. Kathy Felker also commented that she felt the Sierra Buttes Trail Stewardship shouldn't have done the feasibility study because it could be the entity that constructs the trail. Greg Williams, director of S-Club rounds up donations Members of the Quincy High School Service Club show off all the food items they collected last weekend for their upcoming Thanksgiving food drive. In addition, the club plans to hold its annual community dinner this Saturday from 5 to 7:30 p.m. The traditional Thanksgiving dinner, to be held in the high school's cafeteria, is open to the public and free to attend and dine. Photo submitted the SBTS, rebutted that the stewardship, with its history constructing trails, was the most qualified candidate to conduct the study. Williams also added that all the workers who conducted the study were Plumas County residents. Eventually, it became clear to Simpson and Sawchuk that more public input was needed before work began. "Deny and I said we would leave the dialogue open and accept more comments and look into some concerns that have come up," said Simpson. Feather Publishing will announce upcoming public meetings as more information becomes available. qBqi'" U s E YO U R HEALTH SAVINGS OR FLEX SPENDING ACCOUNT Before it expires at the end of the year. www.fridenoptometry.com FRIDEN OPTOMETRY FAMILY EYE CARE CONTACT LENSES Jonathan Friden, O.D. 68 Central Ave. Quincy 283-2020 Complete vision and eye care, Optometrists and Ophthalmologists on staff, Vision and Eye examinations, treatment of eye disease, cataract surgery, foreign body removal, threshold visual field analysis, contact lenses, glasses (large selection of inexpensive to designer eyewear), low vision aids for the visually impaired, and vision therapy for learning related vision problems I PLEDGE Shop Local Spend Local Eat Local Stay Local ENJOY LOCAL TIRED OF COOKING & SHOPPING?
