A partner/developer for the massive hotel and spa planned for the sparsely settled area north of Manchester on Route 7A, was quoted recently as saying that the project was "to get people to realize that nature is important, and they should stop and take the time to appreciate what they have got."
I agree that nature is important, and that we should always appreciate our natural surroundings. However, how does the construction of an 80 room, 74,000 square foot domed roof Turkish themed resort hotel - in a lightly settled mostly open area north of town - make people realize that "nature is important?" If this project is supposed to make us "take the time to appreciate what we have," a more accurate statement is that this project, if built, will make us certainly regret what we had (and what we're losing) by way of open space and green meadows at the scenic northern entrance to our Town.
