To The Daily Sun,
Last Saturday a hearty group of interested residents showed up on a brisk morning to walk with us along the state-owned railroad right-of-way between Lakeport and Weirs Beach to discuss the challenges and opportunities of the continued expansion of the WOW Trail. It was an interesting discussion and I was encouraged especially by the willingness of Bill Ratcliffe, a property owner along Paugus Bay, who took the time to meet us and courteously voice his concerns, offer suggestions, and begin a constructive dialogue. It's this sort of reasonable discussion among neighbors that makes me proud to call New Hampshire home.
Let's continue these conversations. Do you live along the state-owned railroad right-of-way and have concerns or questions about the project? Please give me a call or send me a note. I'd love to hear from you.
I read the following quote the other day, "The next time someone starts listing all the reasons an idea won't work or can't happen, ask them to give you three reasons it can."
As we continue to discuss this or any projects that aim to bring economic development and a better quality of life to the area, I hope that we all might come to the table with open minds. Let's assume some good faith in each other, ask the difficult questions, and find resolutions that will make innovative projects a reality.
