TWO IMPORTANT VOTES AT TOWN MEETING APRIL 5TH
We need you, EVERYONE, to come to this 1st session of Town Meeting April 5th.
We have two important votes, they will be articles 7 and 8. They will come up early. Town Meeting starts at 7PM.
MOST IMPORTANT!!! THE REPLACEMENT OF THE ROUTE 62 BRIDGE!!! NEED I SAY MORE?
No- but I will…We need everyone to step up and cast a vote. All of you who flood, who have watched that dam bridge, and I mean “dam” hold up water for weeks, you’ve lost property, land, and patience. If you sympathize with your neighbors and community. If you appreciate those of us who have worked on this issue. Do it for Paul Cameron! After 25 years of trying FEMA has now promised us $500,000 towards the bridge replacement and we need to come up with about $300K more at Town Meeting.
The next grant for improving our watershed, the North Reading Stormwater Infiltration Project: Reaching Out to Address Runoff (ROAR). This grant includes the opportunity for anyone in town to create a rain garden, and infiltration and improvements at North Street and the Hood School (would anyone like to see the ice gone at the walker exit by the Gym?) It also includes a nice garden at the Town Center. More infiltration means less runoff, less runoff means less pollution to the pond, and less flash flooding.
yes I’m crazy, crazy excited for the most important opportunity for finally alleviating some of our flooding issues.
