Regular meetings between management of the Great Lakes Dragaway and a committee of Paris officials and interested residents seem to be making progress in addressing some of the conflict between the drag strip and the town evident in the past.

Supervisor Ron Kammerzelt reported at Tuesday’s Paris Town Board meeting on the last two meetings with the drag strip.

He summarized that the track has been conscientious in addressing noise and other problems. He quoted one committee member — a frequent critic of the track in the  past — as saying this summer was the quietest racing season in recent memory.

“I think we’ve had a good couple of meetings,” Kammerzelt said. “Things are going well.”

Kammerzelt also reported that a row of arbor vitae tress planted as a screen along the east side of the property are doing well.

“The trees are growing nicely,” said Randy Henning, the track’s owner. Plans call for more trees to be added this fall.

Henning said he also appreciated the better communication with the town.
