Autumn in the North Cemetery.

Sixty miles west of Boston, Massachusetts there is the small New England town of Sturbridge. Located at the junction of I-90 (The Mass Pike), and I-84 it has become known as the "Crossroads of New England". The town was first settled over 300 years ago, and like other small New England towns it has grown just enough over the years to be in a difficult place today. How do we embrace the future without forgetting how we got to our present? How do we attract the right kind of growth, and maintain who we are? And, what about our culture out here in Central Massachusetts?

These pages will cause one to think about how to protect what we have, our future direction, and how to move on in the very best way.

Those thoughts, and other ramblings, will hopefully inspire more thought, conversation, action, and occasionally a smile...

...seems to be working so far

Well Done

Have you noticed the sidewalk repairs on Route 20 over the past month or so? I have. It's great. On even the hottest of days the DPW has been out there hammering out the broken concrete, and pouring new concrete pads for the sidewalk. They even put a non-slip surface on the new work.

Nice work.

This project makes the sidewalks much safer for those with strollers, walkers, wheelchairs, and on foot. Once the utility poles are moved underground, the sidewalks should be ADA compliant, too.

Now, wouldn't it be swell if a sidewalk was added to the south part of Route 20 where there isn't one now?

We can hope.
