A “Preserve America” sign doesn’t belong on the BarringtonTown Hall. JuneRead More Speakman’s Council: Has facilitated build-out planned to continue at what sure seems like a frenzied pace. Rather than taking the problems up with the legislature, continues to facilitate “affordable” housing that is not necessary. Has not properly maintained roads and sidewalks and has allowed Nat’l Grid to install miles of 7 ft strips whereas other municipalities work proactively with Nat’l Grid so that “curb-to-curb” paving results. Has allowed the schools to be in non-compliance with safety fire and building codes. Supports having a full-time Planner planning build-out full-time. Exhibited little concern for dealing with the BCWA issues and appointed the same crony directors year after year. Ignored its duty to implement legally required tax standards. As a result there was the big BET lawsuit. Botched the Zion property deal, including paying a large sum for a due diligence report that facilitated a third party bargain purchase. This government does not deserve a “Preserve America” sign. The true preservationists? The individuals who own old homes and consistently endeavor to maintain them - at great personal expense. And the builders who consistently do nice renovation jobs all around town.

In the preservation debate, the town council need only read the current laws properly. What theRead More town council and the Planning Board and the Housing Board have done is subvert the existing laws to support a developer freindly housing agenda pushing aside the interests of preservation. This is about siding with developers over the interests of town residents and preservation.

Well, siding with certain developers, Gary. But only in certain situations. With the "TownRead More Council Liaison" taking a very active role in zoning and planning issues. To say the least. Much more than just a conduit for information from Zoning & Planning to the the council. All without objective legal advice. Kate & June pushing their agenda behind the scenes. Obviously.
