Opinions from other sources

Lots of good stuff in the Bulletin this week. The Amherst Center column by Andy Churchill, Clare Bertrand and Baer Tierkel is a welcome addition to the local commentary. They are taking a broad and thoughtful approach in considering where we are as a town, and where we're going. Last month's version of the column is here.

Also inclusive and forward-thinking is the master planning process, which Alan Root talks about here. A reception to kick off the master plan will be held on Tuesday, May 2nd at 7:00 at Town Hall.

Bob Rivard's letter (click and scroll down) on broadening the tax base called to mind this really interesting article I saw on Slate a while back, about how much zoning expenses affect housing prices.

You do have to register for online access to Bulletin stuff, but not Slate.
