Opinion: The democratic process worked

Posted on May 19, 2014 |
By Ted Scheu



I know I’m not alone in breathing a huge sigh of relief that the vote for the new Middlebury town hall plan is over. Again. And I’m feeling very hopeful that we will move ahead now, as a community, to see these important projects through to completion with a spirit of openness and respect, as we have done before so many times.

Editorial: Middlebury's moment — take time to do projects well

Posted on May 15, 2014 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



Good for Middlebury. Residents turned out in high numbers for a revote on a municipal bond that confirmed its earlier decision to go forward with the proposed $6.5 million project. That 1,600 people turned out for a revote in mid-May, just 119 fewer than the initial Town Meeting Day vote, is a credit to voter participation and community interest.

Opinion: Middlebury voters need some additional choices

Posted on May 11, 2014 |
By Anna Rose Benson



People have lots of ideas about why to reject the current proposal for the town gym and offices when they vote this Tuesday. Many have ideas about what Middlebury could do instead.

Here is mine.

I’m the gardener at the Ilsley Library. The back garden there, though very small, has become a place that welcomes not only people but honeybees, bumblebees, praying mantises, grasshoppers, rabbits, lots of different birds and butterflies, a neighbor cat, and a toad.

Opinion: Middlebury cannot afford to throw away $5.5 million

Posted on May 11, 2014 |
By Donna Donahue



The new location for town offices, in accordance with the town plan, keeps the offices downtown; the office building design is efficient and welcoming. The new location for the municipal gymnasium nestled among athletic fields is incredibly convenient for students at Mary Hogan, the middle school and the high school. The plan which was passed is a good one for the town of Middlebury now and well into the future, and most importantly, it is one we can afford.

Editorial: Vote this Tuesday

Posted on May 11, 2014 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



Special elections are notorious for smaller turnouts. That’s particularly unfortunate for issues of importance and which have dominated the public discourse for months. In Middlebury, almost 1,700 cast votes on Town Meeting Day to decide in favor of a $6.5 bond to build a new municipal building and recreational center. Almost certainly, fewer people will vote in this reconsideration on Tuesday, but hopefully a reasonable number will turn out so that the issue can be put to rest.

Middlebury project revote set for Tuesday

By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury residents will go to the polls next Tuesday, May 13, to vote again on a $6.5 million plan to build new town offices and a recreation center.

Residents on March 4 voted 915 to 798 in favor of the plan, which calls for a new, 9,400-square-foot municipal building to be built at 77 Main St. and a new, 11,500-square-foot recreation center to be erected on land off Creek Road.

Editorial: Don't let 'perfection' be the enemy of good — vote 'yes' on Article 1

Posted on May 7, 2014 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



As Middlebury residents face a revote next Tuesday on its proposed $6.5 million municipal building/recreational center project, we tip our hats to the more civil nature of the debate this time around. Arguments have stuck to the core issue of the value of the buildings being proposed, their location and how well they will collectively serve the public.

Community Forum: Why Creek Road is best site for new rec center

Posted on May 7, 2014 |
By Brian Carpenter



Editor's note: This week’s writer is Middlebury Selectman Brian Carpenter.

In talking with community members, I have found what I believe to be the root cause of the confusion over the selection of the Creek Road site for the town recreation facility.

Many people have asked me, “Why not at the recreation park?”

I believe the information I found on the process and the rationale may help clarify this question.

Opinion: A 'no' vote in Middlebury would delay progress, cost more money

Posted on May 7, 2014 |
By Marilyn Needham



What does a NO vote on the Town Office Project really mean?

Money wasted heating and patching up the current buildings while we consider other options.

Town workers being subjected for many more years to an unhealthy and unsafe work environment.

Teen and senior centers in a facility with no fire alarms and limited egress.

Handicapped citizens having limited access to town offices.
