We want to express our heartfelt appreciation to Hopkinton residents for the unwavering support and commitment you have shown to our community. With your help, we successfully defeated Marguerite Concrete’s proposal to rezone land at South Street and Hayward Street from residential to commercial at the recent Town Meeting.
As the town moderator put it, “I don’t know if unanimous opposition is a thing — but we just proved it is.”
Your dedication to preserving the character of our neighborhood, protecting Lake Maspenock and the community from pollution and stormwater runoff, and ensuring the safety of our children and residents played a vital role in achieving this victory.
By uniting and standing up to a corporation, we have demonstrated the power of our collective voices and the impact we can have when we work together for the betterment of our town. The courage and determination to forge a better path for our families and our community is truly inspiring.
We want to thank you once again for your support and for choosing a brighter future for our town and our neighbors. We feel honored to be part of such a strong and committed community.
— Vikasith Pratty, Rustem Rafikov and others in the Lake Maspenock neighborhood
