Good Turnout For Signatures 2

We wanted to express a heartfelt thank you to all who came out today to sign the citizens petition to call a special town meeting. The response was overwhelmingly positive and nearly every single person signed the petition. What was clear is that residents want positive change in Millbury to regulate the development of the town so while it grows it retains its small town character. Many have not been pleased with recent residential development projects for one reason or another.

Most people understand change starts with citizen participation and proper regulation of multi-family dwelling units (3 or more), as these large-scale developments are impacting existing residents with substantially more traffic being the top concern expressed. To responsibly grow our tax base we need more non-residential developments that are not a drain on our tax revenue (i.e., schools, police, fire, emergency services, etc.).

Three of our neighbors collected a good number of signatures of registered Millbury voters today, but fell a little short of our goal. However, we will be out collecting signatures again soon. Stay tuned to this blog for the date(s), time(s), and location(s). Hearing people’s concerns was a wonderful experience to know others have the same concerns as we do and want to see similar outcomes. Neighbors working together can make a difference. There is strength in numbers. If you have not subscribed to our blog, please feel free too. It is a great way to keep informed and get involved.

One of our neighbors is communicating through Facebook groups to arrange different neighborhood collections of signatures. We appreciate concerned residents reaching out and working with their neighbors to promote positive change for our town.

Our concerns are not just the proposed insanity on Rice Road, rather our neighborhood has broader big picture objective for the betterment of the town of Millbury.

We look forward to meeting more residents and discussing the development concerns in Millbury.
