Neighbors protest proposed roads

The biggest barrier that may confront Boymelgreen is a property dispute resolution that dates back to 1932. In that year, the two communities resolved a dispute regarding access to Plum Beach by creating a five-foot strip of land called a reserve that would separate the communities in perpetuity in exchange for an arrangement that allowed the road to Plum Beach to be created. The proposed access roads would involve traversing the reserve, which is a direct violation of the agreement.

Boymelgreen’s attorney, Elisabeth Cassidy, said that the developer believes he has the right to create the access roads, but they are in the process of getting a formal title opinion.
