  1. It used to be that when a substantial housing project was proposed in Vermont, the usual opponents argued that it will increase traffic, stormwater runoff, wildlife fragmentation, harm to pollinators…and of course the old standby: “it will change the character of the neighborhood”. Some of those issues are legitimate but are mostly thinly-veiled concerns about “who is going to be living there?”. With Vermont taxpayers footing the bill for so many hotel rooms converted into semi-permanent housing, that question becomes legitimate as well and neighbors want answers.

  2. Follow the money….to find more answers in Morristown. This is not the first project to be done in the very recent past. The result has not previously been as promised……follow the money
