Concerns Surround Proposed Development

A group of neighbors intend to ask the Crow Wing County Board to act against the planning commission's recommendation Tuesday concerning a planned development near East Gull Lake. Those living on Miles Circle adjacent to County Highway 77 said they feel the development is out of step with the surrounding area and endangers the natural, untouched beauty of property surrounding the Gull River. Plans call for converting what was most recently Potlatch Corporation-owned property to a dense development containing five duplex units known as the "Sanctuary."
