East Street pathway enhances neighborhood

To the Editor:

What a wonderful phenomenon! The East Street pathway opened about two weeks ago and immediately lots of people began using it. What a difference it has made! Last Sunday afternoon we were walking on it and enjoyed talking to the Redmonds who live just past the end of the path. When the kids now ask if they can go to Ferns on their own, their mother says, “Sure.” Paul Bergeron, an abuttor near the center, is also impressed by the number of people using the path and, when Paul is working outside, many of them stop to talk. He says that now, “It seems much more like a neighborhood.”

Many thanks to Deb Belanger and all the committee who worked so hard and for so many years on this project.
