Residents support Main Street improvements
To the Editor:
I would like to respond to the remark by Dave Willis, who lives in Onset, at the CEDA public hearing on October 17 in regard to the allocation of $900,000 of grant money.
Mr. Willis stated, according to the article in Wareham Week, that "monies spent [on improving Main Street] would be unnecessary because the town has the inability to maintain what they already have."
This remark is unfortunate, given that the majority of the signatures, and it was literally hundreds, for the "Onset/Wareham Clean Parks, Streets and Beaches" petition were collected on Main Street.
Businesses that participated in collecting signatures were Gourmet and Gourmand, Irene's Flowers, Minerva's, Sail Away Studio, and Town and Country Cleaners. Wareham House of Pizza on Route 6 and Nessralla Farm Stand were also huge contributors.
Those of us who live in Wareham are very much in favor of improvements to Main Street and the community in general. Mr. Willis' comments were surprising and disappointing under the circumstances.
Smith Avenue, Wareham
