Bob Dreessen, Thompson, Dreessen and Dorner, Inc., represented the applicants and explained the plans for what they were looking to do and where it is located.

Locations for access need to be approved by Highway Department and that to vacate the Right Of Way, they will need to work with the State Department of Roads and the County Highway Department.

Bob Dreessen said that Lot 1 will be an extension of 153rd Street and he understands what Mr. Lynam is wanting and will work with him on his requests.
