When willwe be able to get the rest of ours done??
Why are we concentrating more on developing West Main St.?
Wouldn't the Ball and Socket plant be a perfect place to do something similar to the Watch Factory? Unfortunately, we are all at the mercy of Dalton!

I'm not sure. But considering that the Dems ran on opposition to the linear trail (safety, unattached, cost) in 2005, I don't expect anything to happen soon.

Oh, wait! A month ago three members of the majority couldn't stop praising the virtues of the linear trail.

Flip flop... flip flop....

or maybe it was just another use of the rubberstamp?

Dalton has been there for a long time. You cant blame them that the town wants to run a trail thru their property.

$2.5 M Southington plus the $500,000 from the Cheshire side. Is this money falling from the sky? No there is a bigger hole in my pocket. Oh well, I guess I will be able to walk to Southington because I can't drive with the price of GAS.
