ALDOT Public Meeting


ALDOT held a public meeting on Thursday, May 24, 2007, in the Moon Lake Elementary School Gymnasium.  Its announcement stated, “The purpose of this meeting is to give an understanding how this project might affect any district, site, building, structure, or object that is included in or eligible for inclusion in the National Register of Historic Places and gather input regarding the project.”

The following plan was presented, with minor changes from the plan presented a year earlier.  It was not clear how the stated purpose of the meeting was accomplished.

ALDOT representatives at the meeting stated that acquisition of the land required by the project was anticipated to begin during August, 2007.  However, they anticipated that actual construction would not begin until some years thereafter because ALDOT has yet to come into compliance with various laws and regulations related to its particular plans for Mentone.

At the meeting, ALDOT solicited comments from the public.  Such comments should be sent to Johnny L. Harris, Division Engineer, ALDOT, P. O. Box 550, Guntersville, AL 35976-0550.  These comments should be submitted as soon as possible, to assure consideration by ALDOT.
