I watched the meeting last night and they said they had applied for these grants for many years in a row to try to fix different roads in Ashby and finally were awarded one. It's probably because Ashburnham and Fitchburg are each fixing their ends. I thought they also said something about fixing Wheeler rd. I'm sure there isn't any extra money hanging around in their budget to do any roads on our own. Our roads are bad but so are just about every road in surrounding communities. I still think we are doing better than most places around.

Did you even watch the meeting? Like wow said, they applied for other roads, but these were the roads that were approved. Have you driven down those roads at all? There are horrible! Plus, saying as how the roads are in Ashby and Ashby residents live on them, I think it is a pretty safe bet that there are Ashby residents who also travel on theose roads.

When hearing the news that the road between Ashby and Fitchburg would be improved the residents did not have a collective sigh and say "oh shit more trash from Fitchburg coming thru.".

Is there anyway we can honestly make everyone happy.???With all the comments above...I dont think so...if you dont like the way Ashby is trying to fix its problems...live somewhere else!
Or better yet...get off you high horse and actually take some action yourself...other than running your mouth!
One road at a time is better than no roads at all!
