Architectural renderings and yellow signs dot the North Yarmouth landscape, indicating another vote is coming. One could assume this solves all of our needs. But if the North Yarmouth Middle School redevelopment proposal is the right fit, why did more people voice concerns about it at both town forums than in favor of it? What about the community petition of 300 residents that tried to add an alternative proposal? Are we being asked to settle because people want to move on from the discussion? Whatever the case, I know we can do better as a community. Don’t think about the past 50 years of our town, think about the next 50. Review the facts, think of the future, and don’t be sold with the only proposal we have to vote on. Let’s see what a town planner could bring to the table.
