What of the Land Bank’s role in the Roundabout?


To the Editor:

In all of the discussions about the Roundabout, little has been said of the Land Bank’s role in this project. The Land Bank owns three of the four corners at the intersection and voted to allow the state to take property with certain conditions.

Have these conditions been met?

According to the Land Bank enabling legislation, the Secretary for Environmental affairs must sign off on a project like this on Land Bank property.

Has this approval been given? Can we expect further paving projects on Land Bank properties? Like the ill conceived Roundabout project itself, there are just too many unanswered questions.
