As a neighbor to the proposed Emily's Way development, I encourage the Ayer Planning Board in its efforts to thoroughly understand the impacts of what the developer has proposed, and to adhere to the improvements to subdivision rules that were discussed in 2001.

Are you saying the planning board doesn't know what they are doing or know the town's bylaws? Or is it possible people think town officials can make up their own rules - re: Gilles.

I agree with this call to prudence and conscientiousness.

While I understnad the author's concerns, I'm not sure what the issue's are. Are residents upset with the developers or the laws that allow these subdivisions to be built. If people are upset with the laws or property being developed in their neighborhoods than perhaps the approach should be for them all to come together to change the laws and/or purchase the land. The people who own the property have every right to develop under the current laws. I believe there are other lots near the proposed development owned by other parties. They too will have the right to develop on their land if people don't do something about changing the laws. Seems like your going after the wrong people.

Is the intention of the neighbors to stop the subdivision or is it to be sure the laws are followed correctly? Most of what I have read up until this point was mostly emotional in nature. When it comes to law, the best thing to do is keep emotion out of it.

Finally watched the Planning Board meeting on community access tv the other day. It was eye opening. Seems to me people attempted to bully the board. Some tried to use personal credentials to give the impression they know more than the board does. Unfortunately the board seemed to acquiesce. I can't figure out why 14 homes which sets aside a lot of open space isn't supported more. If you stop and think a bit another developer could implement a much much denser or intrusive plan. This is a gift people! On another note, it was quite amusing about people's concerns about traffic impact on existing neighborhoods. Finally people are starting to report how bad the existing traffic is on Groton Harvard Rd and Main Street. I suggest if the Rail Trail garage is built you will see such so much more traffic in places that haven't yet been impacted. The traffic from 14 homes will be a dropin the bucket to them.

Now that the project has been approved the mud slingers have returned to their holes.
