Cumberland Councilman Kauffman Comments on Merling Proposal

May 12th, 2014 by WCBC Radio

Cumberland CIty Councilman Dave Kauffman has weighed in on the proposal by George Merling to develop a "Potomac Riverside Park and Recreational Area."

Kauffman said he believes the proposed development is worth pursuing, but that regulations in place need to be adhered to. Kauffman said he visited the site twice over the weekend and found brick steps approaching the top of the levy dislodged, and a ramp to be too steep and too slick to be safely used.

That said, the councilman advised he was willing to assist Merling in his vision to develop the North Branch of the Potomac River in a means that will contribute to the local economy.
