Sunapee officials say they don't plan to build housing

“It’s not something we foresee doing in the next five years,” Gamble said Wednesday.
“So what is in their plans for year six?” Abbott said.
Abbott and others said they hope the Department of Resources and Economic Development, which oversees the resort’s planning for the state, will question the plan in greater detail.
Amy Bassett, a DRED spokesperson, said the agency is taking comments on the plan until Sept. 26, and will then review the comments and form a response to the plan.
Virginia Shendler of Goshen — where much of the development is planned — said Sunapee Mountain officials “have done a good job overall, but they’ve done enough.”
Gamble said the master plan still leaves open the possibility for development.
Gamble said the reason most people spoke in favor of the plan — and the reason the audience applauded loudly when those people spoke — is Mount Sunapee’s recent history. The new plans would enhance the resort, he said, bringing more economic benefits to the area.
A few of those speaking in favor of the plans identified themselves as employees of the resort.
