I would like to see Staub walk down the street where this would have an impact and count how many cows he actually sees. There would be ZERO! Colby farm is several miles down the road. The least this guy can do is get his facts straight. It makes me incredibly angry that this would be decided in "our best interests" without consulting anyone who actually live on the properties effected. This is yet another example of how our politics have been hijacked in the interest of increasing the tax base at the expense of it's own citizens. Why eve bother having a Community Meeting next week when it clearly looks as though the legislature has made up its mind. What a farce.

As a long-time user of the park, I am concerned that the County is taking parkland already too small for the residents it serves. The location for the fair will eliminate well-used trails for hikers and snowshoers and cross-country skiers. The County has already removed a bridge connecting several trails by the creek and are not replacing it. The County, as of 3 June have not yet mowed grass on the trails- they are poorly maintained. Then, there is the noise, trash, traffic with poor infrastructure, clear-cutting of 25 acres of parkland.

More bodies = more votes at election time (and when election time comes DO NOT VOTE for REPUBLICANs, as they are the ones pushing this through the Legislature). COME to the meeting and be heard!

Meeting is on 5 June from5:30 - 7pm at the ski lodge on Hubbell Road.
