IN 2021, Nashua’s Board of Public Works approved the installation of an 18-hole professional disc golf course at Roby Park on Spit Brook Road but didn’t plan on the public outcry that ensued. Conservationists have been fighting the proposed project for a year.

Taxpayers, abutters, and recreational users of the forest have very valid parking, safety, traffic, and financial concerns. The city claims only 48 trees were brought down, but without approval from the Nashua Conservation Commission, Planning Board or state Department of Environmental Services-Wetlands Division. We have counted approximately 125 trees downed, including live trees and saplings. The BPW plans to remove another 74 trees, expand parking, remove almost an acre of shrub brush, and install six bridges over critical wetlands that sustain a diverse population of wildlife.

Denise Muccioli is spokesperson for the Coalition for Conservation of Roby Park Trails. She lives in Nashua.

I READ with great satisfaction that SB 272 failed to pass last Thursday. Please understand that not every youngster or teenager lives in a welcoming, loving, understanding home environment. Not every parent is attuned to the needs (both emotional and physical) of their children.

THIS MORNING, in darkness, thousands of people left their homes to go to work. Ten to 12 hours will go by. They will return home in the dark. Their children will dance in ballet recitals that they will never get to see. Their spouses will make dinners they will never get to eat.
