April CLARION Now On-Line – Important Issues to Read About
by Ray Boas
Yes, the April issue of THE WALPOLE CLARION is done, and has gone to the printer to be mailed by the end of the week. The news in this issue is of paramount importance, as consequences could impact the Walpole that we know and love. There are two threats to losing Rural/Agricultural Land you must know about. The most egregious is at the intersection of South Street and Route 12 – the southern entrance to the village. Just imagine a convenience store with 10 gas pumps on prime farm land. The State has said, “no more traffic lights on Route 12 to slow down traffic.” When will the first fatality occur at this spot? Land values will decline, but worse is the precedent to populate Route 12 with commerce on farm land.

If you would like a separate PDF of just page 3 to share, please email me, and I will send it to you.
There are some legal issues that could stop these infringements on the Fabric of Walpole, but all residents must unite to voice their opinions and be heard. I will be providing updates on these issues as they occur with posts from this site. If you have not done so, please look in the right column of the CLARION home page, and “sign up” to follow the blog. And, most important, share and get the conversations flowing.
Thank you for your continued support, yours, RAY
