Open House and Forum March 24, 2012
at Sand Hill School, 16 Dewey Ave, Sandwich, MA
I want to thank the members of the commission responsible for helping to pull this together: Ellen Carlson, Jonathan Shaw, Don Bayley, Carolyn Crowell, and Jennifer Madden.
Any time a new plan in Sandwich is developed and future land use is changed every neighbor’s property is impacted. Some residents accept that the impacts on their property or their neighborhood may have long range benefits to the community as a whole; others will see any impact as a direct threat to their rights as landowners. Both sides are equal parts of the planning debate.
The Sandwich Historical Commission is very fortunate to have as facilitator, co-vice chair, Ellen Carlson. The duties of her full-time career as community planner with the National Park Service make her uniquely qualified to coordinate the Sand Hill School community visioning event.
I hope you will have the opportunity to tour the building and participate in the public forum that follows. See our NEWS page for more details.
If you are not able to attend the forum please send an email to Ellen Carlson at ecarlson[at]sandwichhistory.org with your comments and we will incorporate them into the discussion.
Terry Blake, Chair
