I think it would be great to have it at industrial park at exit 56. I think you should learn a little bit about geography. It is nowhere near everyone's back yard. Industrial park is as far east as you can go, but I hope you can arrange for it to go there. I am always sorry to disagree with people. I have respect for others opinions and I am courteous with my response. I find it interesting that you think it is a weakness in my opinion. Here I will try it another way. In my opinion the Tabor property is currently the best location for the town DOT. I will not be signing your Petition on this matter. I wish you the best of luck with it and if a more suitable site becomes available in the mean time, I hope the town adopts a location that is beneficial to all the citizens of Branford.

WHAT are you talking about, Mr. Baker? Perhaps, a reread ?

Mr. Baker... can you please provide us with the facts that makes Tabor the logical and best use for the PW garage?
Dr. Alfred C. Whitehead January 09, 2013 at 10:22 PM
Mr Baker...When it comes to facts, I respectfully submit to you, that you don't have them. I agree with you that the quarry is a perfect location for the Public Works facility. It has every advantage that Selectman Campbell proclaims about Tabor. It is away from flood plains and flood ways, its substrate is bedrock, there is plenty of land to build and it is aTown owned property. The question is, "why wasn't this location included on the list of properties being considered for the proposed PW garage." The simply answer is, "Selectman DaRos does not want it in Stony Creek!" His Creeker constituents would drive him out of Town. When the search was conducted (by a hand picked group of people loyal to Mr. DaRos), there was a condition called "fatal flaw." What that meant was that if the potential property was near residential neighborhoods, it would be automatically eliminated from the list. It might be safe to say that Tabor is exposed to more neighborhood than the Quarry yet the quarry was never even considered as a potential site. Do you believe that was by coincidence? It's fine to have an opinion on an issue. .. but having an educated and informed opinion is much better.
