Vote yes on October 21 to preserve the last significant and historic piece of open space in Medfield. Here are a few facts that need to be mentioned: 1. Once this one of a kind property is gone, it's gone for good period! 2. Open space preserved for 11,000 plus residents of Medfield is batter that 7 home owners and their immediate family. 3. Voting yes to open space ensures Medfield residents open access to space for generations to come. 4. Preserving this space assures all Medfield residents a tangible use that has immediate benefits. 5. Private property is private and open access can not be assured. 6. Development even when planned with the best intentions is a strain on wildlife habitats, wetlands and the environment overall. If this property were developed I can help but think about the many Scout groups that camp nearby and the negative effects such as seeing houses nearby. John Muir said it best over 100 years ago, "when one tugs at a single thing in nature he finds it connected to the rest of the world". Leave this open space open for all to enjoy.
