I gather the BoS will have a discussion in the near future regarding the future of the (former) Lions club property.It isn't as simple as putting on a new roof and a fresh coat of paint.
No funds were allocated at Town Meeting to do anything with the property, but there are funds available for maintenance and repair, which could include a new roof.
The basic questions remain to be answered: Do we keep the building? Do we sell the entire property? How much is it really worth? Can it be subdivided? How much usable land is actually there? What about the priority function that occurs in the building, namely Meals on Wheels? Is that a strong enough reason to hold on to the property? Can MoW be moved elsewhere? What does it cost the town to operate the building today? Many more questions that need to be answered so we can move on. It will cost money to renovate, but is it worth it and what will it be used for?
My personal opinion is that it would be a shame and a step backwards to piece meal solutions. There is a big picture and it should be part of an overall strategy. Like it or not, the Lions Club property is in the Village Overlay District and how it all will fit together should be the end game.
Lastly, I would hope that the BoS come to real consensus on this and other issues and learn to better support each other. It will go a long way to defuse community anxiety if they could present a unified front. It's okay to disagree and argue, but in the end, the entire board by majority vote makes decisions.
