I am writing in support of the upcoming June 14th vote on the North Yarmouth selectmen’s plan. The plan put forth by AH Grover is an excellent compromise and appears to address most of the concerns raised by our town residents.

For an out-of-pocket cost of $500,000, the town is projected to receive an annual tax revenue stream of $180,000 per year. That’s a good deal.

The Sharpe’s Field will be permanently maintained, as previously agreed to by the town. This is an important practice field for our local lacrosse programs.

Finally, we have an excellent local private developer, AH Grover, in charge of this project. You can bet this project will come in on time and probably under budget. North Yarmouth is ill-equipped to develop this project on its own.

Vote yes on June 14.
