Canned Presentation said...

129 Good Sports here, who drove thru the monsoon, and made good props for a tightly controled " town Imput Meeting ". The UNH team could NOT allow an " Open Mike Night " here. These old taxpayers might get too upset. All the content of this meeting could have been on the survey, or was on the survey...and you can bet this crowd did the survey, being interested enough to turn out here.
Many noted that none of the Germaine questions were asked. They will not give voters a clear chance to be against this. We missed a major opportunity for a valid question: how many of you are here winters? That would shed some light on this need.
It is very disappointing that this survey had no connection or knowlege of our special town with its MEGA opportunities.

Another question that should have been asked: "Are you in favor of a new gym or other recreational facility?"...yes or no...period.

anon at 11:39, the town already answered that question at town meeting two years ago when they voted to pursue the blue ribbob commission recommendation. We already voted yes.

Time for SB2 said...

Yes a very small, maybe 3-5%, of residents attended Town Meeting that year and voted yes.

Hope voters are begining to understand why Moultonboro should be an SB2 town. If you don't attend Town Meeting you have NO say. Guess snowbirds who are away in March, and seniors who can't sit for 6 hours through a Town Meeting, don't count.

SB2 gives registered voters the abilty to vote by absentee ballot unlike Town Meeting that requires voters to physically attend in order to vote.

Posted at 3:07. Oh yes, the wisdom of five people on the blue ribbon.......obsolete now, as the 2010 - 2011 study is seriously out of date now, the demographics and economics have gone south. Most recent is the state required Master Plan update survey from last year, answered by 688 residents, and stating : NO more land or buildings for recreation, by a 2 to 1 margin. When voters realize what the Moult Mission Creap has morphed this building into, there will be another town meeting turn-down. I would not trust them to build a Playground Drive Port-a-potty with the current admin...
