If you do not understand what I am talking about, ask me.The word AND>>before a sentence. Obviously I wouldn't do that on test. Do you understand the geographic mecca of highway access I speak of? that is my point. What part is not understandable? I still think your a little ghost gang trying to beat up on me because there is only insults to your comments instead of substance for debate.

@donna- From your post " It is because candidates for Selectman and Planning Board state different vision than I do. They talk of offering incentives, a downtown concept for Tewksbury, changes to our town center and offering incentives to future businesses.” These seem like great ideas to me. Why would anyone NOT want a downtown concept? Why would anyone NOT want to get new business here ASAP?

@Tewksbury2001 I agree. A downtown area would be wonderful, the current town center is barely used. I have yet to understand or find her concept.

Thankyou for responding that we disagree.I know many people that do not want the suggested downtown concept. We do not want Tewksbury to change it's character. I like the town common as it is ,where it should be. I do want new business here asap but not at a cost to us. I do support sidewalks and crosswalks for our residents Now. This would service our local businesses located side by side and across the street from each other. I have reasonable and anxious concern for these things we need. I will support future development that can help provide for their impacts not expect a break from a town that can not afford to do so.

I support crosswalks and sidewalks. Where exactly are Tewksbury residents walking too? There are no businesses here. They can stroll down Main Street and tour the empty lots.
