Plan Pinardville ‘fiasco’ fuels bid to limit Goffstown board’s powers
About 50 registered voters signed a petition article asking voters to rescind the selectmen’s authority to apply for, accept and expend unanticipated money from state, federal government or private sources.
She said 224 acres near the women’s prison is zoned commercial/industrial, and could be a prime location for low-income housing, a type of development Benner and many other residents voiced their objections to during the Plan Pinardville project.
“That would be a good thing so people can vote on what our selectmen and boards are doing beforehand. We want to be involved. I care and I’m afraid our town will eventually go bankrupt,” she said.
Tyler Drive resident Michael Pelletier said he is concerned about the safety of the 15 children who live on the street.
“What raised my concern was what happened in Pinardville, when that boy was struck by a car,” he said, referring to Alex Reed, the 10-year-old who was struck by a car while walking across Mast Road on Oct. 16. “Similar streets like the spice streets are at 25 mph.”
“If I needed 100 or 200 signatures I could have easily got that. I hope the selectmen take a neutral stance or support it because efforts over the past 15 years have been unsuccessful. I’d like to know why the highway safety committee considers 30 mph safer than 25 mph,” Pelletier said. “It’s old-fashioned democracy at play here, and I hope the leaders of our town would take a more active leadership role in safety. I’m just looking for safety on my dead-end street.”
