Nashua residents make their voices heard on Legacy Playground
Residents spoke for more than two hours before the Board of Aldermen began debating a proposal to conduct an independent study to find the best location for the fully accessible playground being organized by Leadership Greater Nashua and funded by donations.
"We are listening. We are listening to what the community is telling us," said Brand. An independent study could take weeks to be accomplished, according to Brand, who said that would likely prevent construction from happening in 2014.
While some residents spoke in favor of Greeley Park as the future site of the play structure, others voiced opposition to Greeley Park and offered alternative locations within the city. Some favored the independent study while others pleaded with the board to move forward now without the third-party review.
While there is strong support for the playground, some individuals feel more review is warranted.
The Board of Aldermen had not yet voted on the matter at the time this report was written.
