CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu has signed an executive order establishing a commission to research public boat access at Lake Sunapee, weeks after taking a long-debated “flawed” boat ramp project in Newbury off the table.

Sununu, a Republican, said Tuesday the Lake Sunapee Public Boat Ramp Development Commission will research and evaluate “potential alternative opportunities” for development of what’s known as the 3.3-acre Wild Goose Site owned by the state and considered for a boat ramp, and for expansion of public boat access at the lake in general.

The commission, to be made up of legislators, commissioners, town residents, and public members, will prepare a report due March 1, 2018.

The ramp was proposed back in 1990 and has faced much opposition.
