Letter to the Editor: Downtown urban heat island

by | Jun 25, 2023 | Letter to Editor

Wonderful … 53 more parking spaces added downtown! Seven thousand square feet of grass removed from the Town Common for parking and in the process reducing the size of the Doughboy triangle. Seven to 8 feet of lawn removed in front of 25 and 35 Main Street to accommodate for bike paths. The company supplying the asphalt for these projects must be quite happy!

— Beth and Rick Kelly, Hopkinton
