Blacktop requirements lifted for Dugan Road

SPRING VALLEY--A blacktop requirement for property abutting a gravel street was discussed by the Spring Valley Village Board last month.

Justin Hemry is building a house off Dugan Road on the north side of the dam. The village driveway policy states all driveways for new houses and garages must be blacktopped within six months of completion.

Because Dugan is a gravel road, Hemry asked if the requirement could be changed for all Dugan Road lots. A potential buyer was present to state the requirement could influence his decision to purchase.

The board discussed the need for the policy and concerns about future development and maintenance in the area, then approved lifting the ban, with Trustee Matt Huepfel voting against.
