Nashua playground public hearing request denied
Several aldermen argued the public hearing should be put on hold until an independent consultant, the Institute for Human Centered Design in Boston, presents its findings to the city. That study is underway to examine about 10 different city locations to determine where the playground’s structure would be best suited.
The board denied Sheehan’s request, voting 9-4 against holding a hearing now.
“To me, it feels obstructionist,” said Sheehan. “ … It shouldn’t be drama to pick a date.”
“I am not going to prolong the agony of this,” David Deane, president of the Board of Aldermen, reassured Sheehan, saying he will work with committee chairmen to eventually set a public hearing date.
