Your coverage of the Falmouth Ad Hoc Facilities Planning Committee may have left readers with the impression that decisions have already been made regarding the future of the Lunt and Plummer-Motz site. Nothing could be farther from the truth.
The Falmouth Town Council charged the committee with examining various municipal needs and assets of our changing community, gathering public input, and making a recommendation to the council. In order to inform and include as many residents as possible in this important endeavor, members of the committee are meeting with over 30 local groups (e.g. the Planning Board) over the next two months in advance of a large community gathering on March 12. After the schools relocate to their new building in a few years, the town could use all, some or none of this property to house several municipal functions. This type of significant decision calls for a thorough, inclusive, transparent community discussion and that is what we are planning for March 12 and beyond. I invite all interested taxpayers to visit the town Web site for more information and to join us on March 12 at 6:30 p.m. at Plummer-Motz.
