The games people play never change—just the players. At a recent public hearing regarding the Conwell School site development, it was interesting to sit in the audience and listen to the various committee members discuss not just the amount of money needed by the City in the short run, but also how this project would impact the school system. When did this become an anti-family community? It became apparent that night that certain elected officials and committee members are very antifamily from the questions they were posing and the comments they made. Mark our words—a developer that won’t be selling to families will be chosen for this project—and we will enjoy taking those to task for their comments that night and their subsequent actions. We have heard of anti-family residents filtering into the community over the years, which is fine—but our elected officials now too? The first project to be rejected was probably the most family-oriented one, put forth by the Somerville Community Corp. With three proposals left, who wants to wager that the VNA project is the one picked? Create more brand new elderly complexes—don’t encourage young families to move here—nice work!
