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...

Hamant Brook Information Day -- April 11, 2009
"If you care to attend and see for yourself.....
Dear PLAC Members and Friends
At this time I am recommending that we focus on Saturday April 11, 2009
starting at 9:00 AM and running until 12 noon as the day we (PLAC) hold an
information day for the DFW, ConCom, FinCom and the public to walk and view
the old Camp Robinson Crusoe (CRC) land. During this time everyone can view
the land as is with ponds and dams and what it may look like should the
Hamant Brook Restoration project move forward.
I would ask that each of you spent some time looking at the Pros/Cons of Dams
Vs Brook or the opposite and send them to me so that I can compile some list.
Please provide any recommendation you may have for what should be available
such as publicity, water, site walk, handicap access, parking, etc.
Thank you in advance for your support and cooperation.
