Re: The City of Marshfield Jetport

Bobkat, I am not a fan of term limits. I believe more emphasis should be put on getting people to vote or somehow leveling the playing field for candidates prior to primaries. It's a subject that I am more than willing to exchange ideas with others. It's a good subject to talk about. Start another t...

Re: The City of Marshfield Jetport

I am sure most in congress are millionaires.
I am sure quite a few already were when they took office and I am sure some became millionaires while in office.
Money always influences people. The question is how how do you control it in regards to those who are suppose to be serving all of the people.

Re: Zoning board approves Modera

I can't believe I am saying this but seahag is correct. There is some kind of restriction on how many 40b developments can happen in a town within a certain amount of time. If someone has an issue what is happening in the town they live in the answer is not to move. You need to stand up and be heard...

Re: Zoning board approves Modera

Bobcat, When asked how much tax revenue would be brought in from this development no one had an answer. You could be right about town getting more money than spent. But, overtime I believe it will be a wash. In the end it will be us who will be paying the price. Just keep in mind bobcat, I am not op...

Re: Zoning board approves Modera

Bobcat, yes I know what the other name for 40b is. How do you know we have not met the % for affordable housing? We have not had a mapping to see if we meet the 1.5% land requirement dedicated to affordable housing. Years ago I went to planning board to see if they would do this and they were reluct...

Re: Zoning board approves Modera

Remember, 40b is also designed ( not just affordable units ) to override your zoning laws. It's a developers dream come true law. Cram as much living units into one area and make a fortune at the expense of the town. Of course, the genius idea of expanding 139 did not help out either where it can ha...
