"Re:  a development on the north side of Route 20 (across the Landham Road intersection with Route 20) being 40B Yes, it is.  Located at 192 Boston Post Road, the Landham Crossing development consists of 31 units, 8 of which are considered…"

White House/Landem Road/Frost Farm

I have not heard anything for a long time about what the town is doing with the White House near the High School.  Anyone know?Someone mentioned in a blog something about a development on the north side of Route 20 (across the Landem Road intersection with Route 20) being 40B.  I do not recall reading about this in the TC or Patch.  Is this a 40B development?Finally, it appears there is new farming going on at Frost Farm.  I was under the impression this is toxic land.  Who is farming this and…See More

Bulldog Friday commented on pmotw's blog post Pantry Brook Farm Preservation
"The word "threatens" bothers me.  The landowner needs both a) the intent and b) the right to sell his land for development.  If either is lacking no sale will occur.  If the town owns the development rights, the landowner no…"

Bulldog Friday commented on pmotw's blog post Pantry Brook Farm Preservation
"Setting aside "What is a fair price?", the deals are valuable both to both the landowner and the town. Certainly for the Nobscot (Boy Scout) reservation, the town didn't buy the land; the town bought the development rights.  The…"

Pantry Brook Farm Preservation

I have concerns over giving tax dollars to any land owner who threatens to sell their land to developers and have the town pay them huge amounts of money to block any development without the town owning the property.  It’s one thing for the town to use CPC funds to purchase land to preserve open space.  However, when we are giving the land owners hundreds of thousands (if not millions) of dollars to keep the land as is, they still own the land and use if for farming profits or scouting, it…See More

Bulldog Friday commented on pmotw's blog post CPA Agricultural Restrictions
"I'm not entirely sure what the situation is:  particularly unclear is the nature of the temporary restriction on eight acres of the (33 acre) parcel until 2014.  Does anyone know what that is?  It's not a standard 61A--which…"

CPA Agricultural Restrictions

”Voters agreed to spend $750,000 in CPA money to buy an agricultural restriction for the 33-acre Fairbank Farm on Old Sudbury Road. The present owner would continue to run a farm there and preserve a barn.” This raises a few very important questions.  How many of these”projects” has CPA tax dollars financed?  When the town dishes out this kind of money and the land owners continue to own and use the land for farming profit, does the town get anything back?  Does this land become tax free to the…See More

Lincoln State of the Town Meeting- Nov 2010

Town Meeting Observations

It’s very obvious what happened last night. The pro-override supporters were very organized and showed up in force to push the override. I overheard some of them talking about how many of them made it to the meeting. They all groaned when anyone spoke in their opposition and were arrogant towards Mr. MacEntee. Unless…
