Project Description:

The applicant is proposing a restoration and renovation project at Hill Cumorah, which includes the demolition of an existing RV campground, the reduction and/or elimination of paved roads and paths to be replaced with more rustic and permeable materials, and the restoration of previously disturbed areas with native plantings. Significant manicured lawns will be converted to woodlands and meadows using native trees and herbaceous plantings.
