I had to leave tonight’s Dam removal meeting after 34 minutes. That old dam is going nowhere fast, well not that fast, they were talking about a study that is still a year or more away from completion. I have to collect my thoughts on this one and post tomorrow. Maybe 60 people attended and few I recognized, this was not a cross section of Exeter residents and probably included folks from other Towns.
No young(the future) residents in attendance.
Lionel opened with “your concerns about fire suppression, water supply”. Mimi mentioned the “consequences of dam removal” She also said that this was not going to be a “debate pro or con”.
That’s when I split.
If we are not going to seriously consider removing the dam by placing that charge in the hands of obstructionists, we should cancel the study.
It was very warm and uncomfortable in the hall for a meeting scheduled to go 2 1/2 hours.
