The newest battle between a developer and the people has started. The battleground is the Hirshfield~Richfield project. Developers plan to build a three story building which will meet the sidewalk like Mr. Paladino’s hotel at Main and South Forest. The second floor will be businesses and apartments.
As they reach the end of the project they will include parking in the rear of the building on the Richfield side and continued down the street.
This invasion of our neighborhood is the beginning of the destruction of this neighborhood. Under no circumstances should developers be allowed to go down neighborhood streets.
I’m a man who believes in the power of the people. We must not be sweet-talked into allowing this invasion by anyone.
This is our village we must not let it be taken away from us. We will find legal ways to stop these money people from stealing our heritage, our town.
P>S. The Town Planning Board OK 99 parking spots for this project not 83. There will be 20 apartment and 8 garages for these apartments.
