Standing their ground

cartoon 11.22 rsMarlborough – Ever since Mayor Arthur Vigeant announced plans to build a new senior center at Ward Park, a strong contingent of neighbors near the site, the Ward Park Neighborhood Association, have opposed the plans.

And although funding for the project has been approved by the City Council and a groundbreaking has already taken place at the site, the association has vowed not to give up.

Recently the group announced that they have received a $1000 grant to help fight the project from a Vermont-based organization that awards grants for local environmental initiatives.  And although they acknowledge more donations are needed, they also plan to try other ways that would not require expensive legal representation, such as directly appealing to the state’s Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs.
