Winnipesaukee Forum

Some of you may be aware of the Winnipesaukee Forum . As the name indicates, it is a broad topic discussion board for just about all matters related to the Lake Winnipesaukee area.

There were two threads I found recently of particular interest to Moultonboro.
The first, is about our transfer station and was very complimentary to the staff and the entire operation. It can be found here.

The second is about the proposed site plan for the Dollar General , which can be found here. They are on the Planning Board agenda October 28th. Most of the commentary is quite negative about the prospect.
It is important to remember that the hearings are not popularity contests.The PB is obligated to follow current laws and ordinances, and must make their decisions accordingly, or subject the Town to litigation.
I will keep my opinion on this submission to myself. I will say though,  that if you agree or disagree with a particular kind of development , the time to say your piece is not after the cow has left the barn.

Started reading Wini Forum years ago. Haven't in recent times, but a nice, informative forum ... as is this one. Kind-a-like committees in MoBo ... always the same faces/voices! You know ... the followers of the annual meeting ... see, "the walking dead" :)

Can't wait for the Job Lot in Meredith to open. There will be a MoBo procession to the site, with pitchforks, to bring back the supermarket, and burn Hannaford's to the ground! Include Rite Aid!

Don't let the MoBo western part of town (Center Harbor line) develop.
A Market Basket, pharmacy, Lowe's, Home Depot, or whatever, might move in and minimize the trips to Gilford and Tilton! We need the aggravation and inconvenience. Let the market place be damned! :)
