FedEx comments were out of context, Londonderry Town Council said
Mike Speltz, who serves on the Master Plan Implementation Committee, came under fire with the Town Council Monday night in response to his recent comments about the jobs at the new FedEx warehouse being proposed for the Pettengill Road area.
“We may want to influence further development in that (airport) area,” he said. “I think there’s a lot going on there quickly and if we want to have any influence on how it turns out, we need to act soon.”
“This is our golden egg,” Dolan said. “We’re talking approximately a thousand acres of undeveloped industrial land, and we’ve been working really hard to get (Pettengill Road) built.”
Last month, the Planning Board granted conditional approval for the 300,000-square-foot distribution center and warehouse to be located just south of the airport.
“We’re encouraging them to move forward and submit plans,” he said. “So we’re concerned about (Speltz’s) comments and want to be sure they’re not misconstrued as the town’s official position on the matter.”
Speltz, who sat in the audience during Monday night’s meeting, came to the podium to offer an explanation.
Councilor Tom Freda said he felt “disappointed that an individual on a board was speaking as if he was a representative of the entire town.”
“This plan is purely a conceptual one,” said Green. “It’s definitely not a blueprint, and we have to remind ourselves that.”
