SRPEDD Meeting

To the Editor:

This letter is to encourage all people who regularly use Route 6 between Fairhaven (at Stop and Shop) to Wareham (at Shaw’s) to attend a public meeting about that road November 8 or 14. You can also fill out the survey that should be on your Town’s website or at Town Hall. The topic is Route 6, our regional connector and social/economic lifeline.

Representatives from SRPEDD will be available to discuss the study they are doing before MassDOT repaves it. Should there be changes in lane design, intersection design, shoulders, business districts, or residential areas in the study area? SRPEDD is in the information gathering stages and wants to talk to the public. Is the current road good for your quality of life? Is it good for business? Is it a comfortable, uncomfortable, or scary road for getting to the places you need to go? Do you want it to remain the same or could it be different in a few places?

The meetings were announced for November 8 from 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm at Wareham Town Hall and November 14 from 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm at Old Rochester Regional High School.
