Full Text

Dear editor, As a developer, Fred Dawkins pleads for more development. As a longtime resident, I plead for no more development. I grew up in Burlington when it was a small town. When the developers and their friends took over the town I moved to Acton. Having studied the situation in Acton, I see no advantages, but many disadvantages, to more development. We have a good infrastructure for a small town and the many advantages of living in a small community. We don't need more congestion, pollution, crime, motorized toys, traffic and demands for water, etc. The only people who benefit from expansion are the developers and their friends. Ask the residents of Georgetown and Milton how they like the expansion of their communities. Let's keep Acton the pleasant, small town that we love and enjoy. In closing, who do you think will foot the $20-million bill to improve the water and sewage system to facilitate more expansion? It is us, the taxpayers, the very people who do not want more development.
