Of note – the current Bottle/Sucker Lake parking location has by all accounts worked extremely well and resolved most constituent concerns.  Traffic on the road has increased but with over 250 residents (140 + in BMCB Assoc.) accessing our lakes past the first bridge on the Beaver Lake Road an additional 7 cars should not make much of an impact.
