There’s already pushback, including an online petition opposing it … although since the plan is on private property, not state or federal land, that might be easier said than done.

There’s a pre-application review before the Coos County Planning Board on Dec. 8 at 7 p.m. at the North Country Resource Center (DRED Building) in Lancaster.
