This amazes me. Still no solution to the schools that are falling apart. I am so glad we got out of Rocky Hill. In a few years 471 million would have been a bargin.
It is good to know RH wants to build a dog park.
The town has or will allocate 2 acres for the doggies. The dog park people will have to find funding for the fences, benches, etc. It will still be town owned property. I am curious about liability. What if Tickles bites Pickles? Or Zoro attacks a person. Will the town be sued?

Kids are our future and we are treating them like 2nd class citzens. The schools are falling apart - especially the elementary schools. By the time anything gets passed and actually done, the schools will be condemned. TIME TO MOVE!!!

I don't have any kids and with all the increases think this is too much. This has become a give-me society.
This spells incompetence to let things get as bad as described. If my house needs work that badly, I have to take the necessary measures as the need arises. I don't wait for it to fall on my head to decide I need to build a new house. This is ridiculous.
"A Give me society" Puh-lease We are talking about children having an opportunity at a better education, better school system also means more value to our properties in the long-run. The avg Home in Rocky Hill sells pretty quick as it is, now imagine with an even better, modern schools. Rocky Hill can become a model for this entire state. Dog Parks are ridiculous, since when do we put dogs in front of children? As a parent of two young toddlers, i know it probably wont effect them too much in there upbringing but eventually it will by the time they get to Jr high and High School. Giving my children the opportunity to better themselves in a place that is up to code, comfortable and geared towards learning is the goal.

Okay there yay it might be time to move but the reason to move is to get away from people who seem to think that every part of their lives should be better or easier because the town is providing for them. Sounds like a typical Yankee government dependent socialist. Just like all the other so called 'progressives' we have around here. They aren't progressive at all. They are pro-government-oppression. Do a little better than the guy next door and they want a little more from you. A progressive government would encourage people to "do better", around here (and soon in the whole country) they punish you for it. There is nothing progressive about that.

Oh people might move out but not just out of RH. They will move out of CT and not because some school buildings are a bit run down. They will move out because if they work for a living they can't afford to live here anymore.
The same reason young people aren't moving in or staying when they complete their education. The only thing this state has going for it is that it is slightly cheaper to live here than NY. So if you work in NY you probably will at some point live in CT. Other than that? This is an insane place to live. High costs, high taxes, 80%(and growing) of the population completely dependent on the state in one way or another. Dependents. That is what they grow here. Either monthly checks, the state services, or employment. The incompetence of government stinks to the heavens but people just keep electing who ever promises more.

This is absurd! I am single and have lived in Rocky Hill for the past 19 years. First it's a new high school, now more renovations to the other schools. At a time when most are struggling to live week to week in a rotten economy!!! I do not have children in the Rocky Hill School system. I plan on voting NO to this...
