Those in favor of the proposed parking lot are thrilled with the idea of an additional 30 parking spaces. The primary intention of the new lot is to provide upper field parking access to physically challenged people who can’t make the walk up the steep hill. The new lot is designed so the physically challenged people can park on the field side and see the game from their car. Supports are strongly urging yes voters to make sure they make the meeting. The funds for the project are already approved by the CPC and both youth lacrosse and soccer strongly support this proposal.
Cider Mill Lane residents are concerned about the proposed lot. Although residents understand the town is under served by athletic fields they do not believe this project is the answer. Residents say adding a gated gravel road for vehicles to better access an existing field does not solve the greater need for more fields. They are concerned about increased traffic on the narrow Cider Mill Lane and the potential for accidents at the Cider Mill Lane, Hopkinton Road intersection.
