Editor, The Smithfield Times:
Until recently, the entrance to the town’s historic district through the Main Street corridor at Route 10 was composed of sallow fields, a tear-down house and barn, and a long, one-level cinderblock building placed on a larger slab of concrete.
A proposal has come before the town to develop the 57-acre property with desirable housing for young professionals, the lack of which has been lamented for years. As well, the planned mixed-use development would include a hotel, restaurant and other commercial space to produce goods and services for a growing community.
What do we want? I am throwing my full support behind this innovative, farsighted project. It can only enhance what we have now and anchor Smithfield to a bright future.
And the sausage making? Leave it to the sausage makers. You don’t want to fall into that mixing bowl. It’s so unattractive.
