Remember there are a couple of classes that get to play with, and change the site. They usually do, and try to, make things better, but are learning like all of us !
So, it was with great amusement I heard a couple of the Selectmen conversing about the lack of participation at Town Meetings, in Committees, etc. And they then downplayed it, saying people in town were happy with the way the town was being run, and didn’t need to become involved.
How times have changed !
Ok, I went down to get new pictures the day BEFORE the storm. Dirt in the eroded area, tire tracks over it sorta packing it down. Went back home. Storm came before I could post the repaired pictures. Looked again, all the dirt gone, same area eroded. . Waited a day. Dirt in holes again, sorta. Packed down, sorta. Will wait for the next storm.
Bottom line. If you need to pull to the side of the road on Chadbourne Ridge, be careful. There appears to be no time to correct drainage problems, just enough time for crisis engineering, throw dirt, pack, done. They’ll be back, sorta.
The town was notified 6 weeks ago. Someone hits this going down the hill, it will be a problem. We seem to be great at hiring paving out, and ditching, but a little short on repairs.
Yep, there are not going to be many comments on this website. For a couple of reasons: first, if you want to make a comment, you have to register, leave a name and address. That eliminates most of the writers in the area. Two, when Waterboro went to a five member Council of Selectmen, the town further divided into little groups of like interest, none of whom are going to write anything. Plus, the five Selectmen are not writers. They pontificate on camera, say almost nothing worth mentioning, and that’s it. There are no more Bob Fays left. No one who will voice an opinion in writing. Oh, yeah, there is Jon Gale and his infrequent philosophical ditties that address large picture items, but which relate to Waterboro not at all.
So, no, to the question, I do not expect comments to happen very much, if at all. But, that just gives me a one way street for my opinions.
I keep hearing that Waterboro needs a hospitality suite, ie a motel/hotel or B&B. When the occasional relative or friend shows up do you tell them to get a room somewhere? Where is the demand for a hotel/motel ? The occasional FIshing Derby? The Homecoming ? Massabesic Alumni reunion? Transient traffic passing through, on their way to areas that have things to do ?
What’s the attraction that would bring folks to Waterboro, and have them spend an evening in town? Personally, if there was a demand, I think someone would have invested the money and built something.
Fulltime residents have homes, Summer folks have their homes, the transients passing through have nothing to attract them to stay. There is no uptown, downtown, business area, beach area, or tourist spot in town. And there are plenty of places within twenty minutes to stay. Convince me I am wrong.
Did you notice the fishing derby had signs everywhere saying NO PARKING HERE?
