On July 28, Governor Chris Sununu issued a statement that he put a halt to current plans for Fish and Game to build the proposed public boat access site on Lake Sunapee, commonly known as Wild Goose, after hearing concerns from residents of Newbury, Sunapee and surrounding towns. The governor pulled the renewal of the wetlands permit off the Governor and Council agenda for August 2, resulting in the expiration of the permit at the end of August 2017. Sununu said it was “time to put an end to this flawed plan. Public access to our state’s waterways is important and essential, and we will work with the residents of the area to find a better solution to ensure greater public access.” The Wild Goose project dates back to 1990, when the Land Conservation Investment Program purchased a 133-acre tract of land and gave a parcel of 3.3 lakefront acres to Fish and Game with the understanding that it would be developed into the primary free public boat access to the state's sixth largest lake.
