Chesterfield NH got the new bridge because of its proximity to I-91. What the state failed is to investigate was Chesterfields willingness to permit development before moving ahead with the project. Chesterfield has little interest in growth. Hinsdale is in the market for commercial and industrial development, but the state won't invest in the infrastructure (bridge & road widening)leaving Hinsdale geographically isolated from the rest of the state and their targeted market. The state views Hinsdale as a dumping ground for projects like trash burning plants and prisons while Hinsdale views itself as a shopping destination. Can Hinsdale move forward inspite of the state's strangle hold on their accessibility? I think it is doubtful; but Hinsdale has little choice but to increase the pressure on their already overtaxed bridges if they are to become a giving town instead of a receiving town. What Hinsdale needs is to write a grant, hire the appropriate specialists and develope a town plan. In this way they can convincingly approach the state with their intentions and needs to foster economic growth.

Phase two:, bringing water, sewer and gas lines all the way to where 119 and old Brattleboro road meet (gray barn).

Well, the fundamental problem with Hinsdale is the legacy and current baggage…the ideologues or ideology of wealth and control of the few.

It is a legacy of the hard right republicans…not the kind down south with religion, guns and abortion. These guys are out for status, control and wealth…

I suppose wealth is relative especially when it comes to looking within the Hinsdale populace. However from the outside looking in (I was once in btw) Hinsdale does not have any wealthy residents and only a handful of upper middle class. But again, it all depends upon from where you are looking from. Attracting the wealthy comes with attracting companies that demand skilled employees. It’s the old chicken and the egg riddle. I think the town is pretty well settled on the theory of,“Build it and they will come”.

So why did a daughter get helicoptered in to her parent’s home for a college break one mile from my house. They do this often…

There is a small group that controls a lot of property in Hinsdale…

You'd be surpise with the wealth in Hinsdale and as a second home...

"Attracting the wealthy comes with attracting companies that demand skilled employees."

"Hinsdale has 2.36 square miles of land area..."

That makes no sence at all. It is 22.65 square miles.

How can you trust anything else in it?
