I wish Robert Walker would give up already and leave us alone. Instead of buildiing cities out of the suburbs he should go revitalize a city somewhere else.

Is that you Mike Eliopoulos? Don't you own Westford Valley Properties? Haven't you done enough damage to Chelmsford and Westford? Or is it Mike's business partner and brother in law Sam or Mike's son Phil?

It's pretty sad and pathetic how Walker strip cleared the property so now the whole area looks like a war zone.

Walker lives in Westford and has now done more to make the town look like cr4p then anyone in recent history.

Way to poop in your own bed, Walker.

The Westford MarketBasket has reached its capacity. Parking is very difficult on the weekends, throw in a holiday or a storm and parking becomes frightening. Then you enter the store, and it is obviously too small for the crowd. If the mothers would leave the kids at home. Perhaps teach their men how to push the carriage rather than hang onto the front end. I'm witness to several near brawls in the store over carriage positioning... time to build!!

The fact of the matter is that the area that was logged was traditionally farm land and was clear. It may not have crops or livestock, but its more like traditional landscape then it has been in 50 years.

Granted it would be nice to see the demolished building cleaned up.

So Thomas, which eliopolis are you related to?

I have no dog in this fight, but I must say that what was done to that land (without firm plans) was horrible. Let's not even get started about a proposed 3 lane left turn from Rt. 110.

I only have 2 questions--What inmate is running the asylum as far as traffic is concerned? and Did anyone ever find out who set Golnik's Headquarters on fire?

That was all clear cut farm land until 50 or so years ago. It looked much as it does now only with crops. That was not old growth forest that was cut.

Notice all of the old field stone walls?

LOL, I'm not related to elio's clan. I'm just someone who doesn't appreciate another resident of my town making it look like a war zone in a lame attempt to pressure the town government. Walker is a disgrace of a Westford resident.

And I don't care what it looked like 50 years ago. For most of the last half century it looked like woodlands and now looks like cr4p. Add to it the suspicious fire that burned down that office strip where Golnick had his campaign office that Walker still hasn't cleaned up.

Walker is a blight on almost every town he does thing to. Including his own town.

Well, let's put it this way, he has done nothing to make me like him... LOL!

By the way, whatever happened with the investigation about Golnik's campaign office burning down under suspicious circumstances? Never read a word about it again in the Sun. This being brushed under the carpet or what?

No idea about that. I've never met this guy. I've met Eliopolis and I can't imagine Walker is as bad. The buildings on Lan Drive (bamboo, etc) and the old Skips site in Chelmsford seem well done. Nothing like what Eliopolis did on Westford Valley Marketplace or his new 'barn-like'office building in the Chelmsford center.

I think Walker owns the land and and there's no PR on it, so from that perspective, he seems more on the up and up ...
