If you care about your town you must immediately get informed and even get involved. Our Select Board is now struggling with getting all the facts and projections they can on what a casino will mean to the town of Longmeadow.
Make no mistake, it will mean something. For sure, will mean more traffic. Probably property values will drop on the “cut-thru” streets. Statically, it shows that driving under the influence violations increase on all of our streets. These are a few of the concerns.
What can you do? Watch the Select Board meetings to see what plans they have to mitigate the effects. The meetings are on Longmeadow TV on Channel 12. You can attend the town meeting on Nov. 5 and vote to support the resolution against the casino.
