The land behind Center School should remain as open space. This green space provides the citizens of Hopkinton with a valuable recreational resource. There is a playground for young children, a grassy field for recreational activities, hiking trails and a picnic grove of beautiful mature pine trees. Hopkinton needs more open green space downtown, not more housing.
— Rick and Beth Kelly, Hopkinton
