Norton residents express opposition to adventure camp at public hearing Monday night.
Over 100 people turned out for the Pheeny’s Island public hearing Monday night, many of them voicing their strong opinions against the proposed adventure park. Currently the island is for sale by a private owner. “Be aware, this is a private land owner, as we all potentially are,” said Conservation Commission member Julian Kadish. “And there are a lot of rules about what people can’t do with their land, but in general we’re allowed freedom beyond that to do what we want with the land. So you have to look at both sides of this issue.” Chris Yarworth of Yarworth Engineering presented the project, describing it as an “environmentally sensitive course.” The goal is to use the trees for rope bridges, ziplines and other challenges.

"It's extra safe," he said, describing the double clip carabiner system and the safety lines that traverse the length of the ropes courses. The all-wood construction of the platforms spare the big trees from harm, and shelters, composting bathrooms, and snack bars are made of logs to …
