To begin, I do appreciate that the Meredith News did provide coverage of some recent Moultonboro meetings , front page no less, but the headline is not quite accurate. The article that follows the headline does explain that the final decision was to use only part of the Taylor property, but the impression picking up the paper was just the opposite.
Purchasing the Taylor property was somewhat contentious and the selectboard at the time was clear that no plans were in place for the property if we purchased it, so the last thing the public would want to hear just 5 months later would be that it was chosen as the best site for the proposed gym. It wasn't. The BRC site study team was very clear that preserving the property for some future was important, and we wanted to minimize the use of it as much as possible. The final approved plan includes the back part of the Taylor property for some parking and a sliver for a possible access road to Rt. 25. The entirety of the building foot print is on the adjacent school property.
