  1. The destruction of the train station walkways and greenery safe zones for pedestrians elders and children during summer
    is a crime . a scandal ..all for what mini coopers spaces and some money for the raised garage scandalous financial losses and cost overruns? answer .they don’t care taxpayers it’s their town..we just pay the taxes and train and parking fees ad nauseum

  2. What about motorcycle parking,

  3. A crime and a scandal? Really. Calm down. Have another drink. Or some legal marijuana.

  4. “greenery safe zones”
    Ha Ha … good one.

  5. It’s just flat out wrong to do away with the train station greenery for more concrete. The town needs more greenery not less. It does provide safety but also aesthetic benefits. Too bad the Historic Preservation Commission doesn’t stop the destruction of the green islands in the nick of time as they did that architecturally unique bus shelter.

  6. sounds like a lot of commenters don’t even use the TRAIN
    station every day and therfore don’t see the chaos when trains discharge in dark winter evenings ..

  7. did you notice when the pota potties sat there for a year ?

  8. There is always a reason to do away with wooded areas, green islands, areas of plant life and put commercial ventures in its place or what is thought to profit commercial ventures.

    What will profit mankind when all greenery is gone or nearly gone and the earth layeth in concrete? We shall soon see!

  9. no one uses it no one even knew it was there till it was need for parking

  10. “Using” open space, greenery, like you “use” a car is not the point. Greenery has lots of benefits, preventing floods, safety, wildlife habitats, oxygen, getting rid of carbon dioxide, stress relief by just looking at and more. But you know what James, most people agree with you. If you don’t “use” it like a car or utensil etc. why should it exist. And it won’t exist, it’s getting developed day by day.
    By the way didja read NYT Magazine this past Sunday, insects are becoming extinct. That’s good, right. They are just irritants; don’t have any good use.

  11. The Snarkters are out to reject efforts to get away with demolition of what we paid for big time. LEAVE THE TRAIN STATION ALONE

    NOT Perfect but adding small car stalls blows the whole investment away

    Look at cottage place lot Abandoned neglected and Trip fall hazard for all ages

    Put the mini coopers there in the short angle corners and charge them double for street view
