Letter to the Editor: Reader Supports a New Town Garage Off the River Site

October 17, 2016 Government, Opinion, Referendum No Comments

To the Editor:

I support the relocation of the town garage to an off river site.  The Town Plan of Conservation and Development, The Upper Mill Pond Management Plan, The Permanent Municipal Building Committee and the Canton Conservation Commission have all recommended getting the garage off the river.  The present site is perfectly suited for recreational development and there are viable alternatives to accommodate our much needed town garage such as the commercially zoned area on Commerce Dr. 

The Board of Selectmen thought Commerce Dr. was a good choice.  Developing the recreational potential of the present site would be a long term plus for our community.  I think most people realize that the present site is in the floodplain and just because there haven’t been any recent horrible floods doesn’t mean there never will be.  Please vote to relocate the town garage off the river and make way for improved recreational access.
