Mrs. Severseike suggested that the parking lot be replaced by a <br />turn-around which would be used to service the church, aid the traffic flow, be <br />.least disruptive to the natural beauty of the area, and which would prevent heavy <br />daily traffic in the area closest to adjacent dwellings.
