    (Let's keep these constructive, and remember that we have the benefit of hindsight. - promoted by Brian)

    2012 has arrived and it might be interesting to constructively second guess Town officials on decisions that they made last year.  I wonder if hindsight identifies any matters that have gone in unintended directions.  Perhaps there are 2011 decisions that should not be repeated.

    My nomination is that soil excavated during a school construction project should not be piled high on an abandoned railroad spur. Further, large numbers of trees should not be cut down to facilitate the process.

    Then again.... (2.00 / 1)
    I trust that if they cut down those trees, there was a need for it. And if the most you're concerned about is a temporary pile of dirt, you must be living the good life.  

    Have you driven by and seen the pile of dirt 15 feet high? (0.00 / 0)
    My guess is, you haven't. If you lived there you would not think it's so unimportant, the town has procedures in place for contractors for this type of thing and the Town and the contractors both screwed up! It looks like a bomb went off in the peoples back yard.

    Are you kidding (3.00 / 1)
    Just like you must be sure there was a good reason to destroy the trees along the front of the Endicott Estate.

    What's the kinky tree fetish? (0.00 / 0)
    Because every tree is a prescious baby? They're trees, not children. Personally, I think the Endicott looks better without the trees. Please don't try to tell me theres a shortage of trees in Dedham. We're surrounded by trees - they're along all our roads, all of our houses, our schools,  and many businesses. We live in an environment that naturally grows trees. The Endicott is the single place in that part of town without trees along it, and it allows you to look out across the lawn. What's with the need to hide everything with trees?
