We need a retail shopping center. The reason the shops in downtown Webster are empty is they are ready for condemning and need to be all knocked down and something built there. The traffic is horrible too. Trying to get to Dudley through Webster, you are taking your life into your own hands. Webster needs revitalization. Also, with gas prices, we need something closer than 20 miles. Wake up Webster!

What is wrong with the people in this town? What is thier biggest worry concerning a retail mall? Is it the extra tax revenue this town sorely needs? Is it the influx of jobs that are going to get harder and harder to find so close to thier homes. Is it the convenience of not having to drive to Auburn or Northboro? Wake up and lets pull this one horse town out of the dark ages!

If people want jobs and closer shoping malls then move to Worcester or Boston and your problems will be solved. Stop moving into towns that donot have this facilities there is a reason why people choose certain towns over others.
