I agree whole heartedly. It is owned by the town and thus by the people so it is up to us to ensure this treasure is preserved. I think it would do us well to make it into something that would support... Read more

Supporting ideas that Support Wareham and its people is a great idea. That's not what has happened in the past. There is already talk of subsidizing the tenants that's done with tax dollars

It would be nice to know the total cost of services the town needs to provide and the total revenue​ the town will receive from the development as proposed before we endorse it

Thank you John for *nailing* a new phrase -- we’re grateful for the support of “Warehamers” like yourself! We’ve designed the planning process to be shaped by local residents. The feedback we collect in... Read more

Wilfred: like you, we also see the site functioning as a destination -- one that serves residents, supports existing tourism, and draws new visitors. As you mention, the nearby, heavily trafficked thoroughfares... Read more

G Michael, we definitely hear where you are coming from and hope to be able to provide a bit more transparency around costs and benefits moving forward. We’re working on an FAQ now (to be posted to this... Read more

Let us not forget to look towards other partners so that the full burden of this site is not on the town and the taxpayer.
I do not want the town to lease out the mill building as artists lofts as... Read more

Absolutely artists studios would be a draw. Towns that have a thriving artists community have things like Open Studio tours, Arts nights once a month --Warren RI has Warren Walkabout, Bristol has huge... Read more

Idea for a short-term use of the TNF site

It would be a great location for a farmers/artisan market. Check out what they did at Simpson Springs in Easton. I think that they have had a lot of success.

The per capita income in Wareham is... Read more

how about an old fashioned Cafe for good coffee and homemade pastries from the locals and local artesians to sell there products if we could get people to come in and show their Wares and how they create... Read more

Actually this is an idea for LONG term use of the facility... I have no idea where that title came from. I hope to hear from the parties involved!!

Idea for a short-term use of the TNF site

It's intended to mean "Who is to pay for all this." Lots of wishes & wants. Very little input for ideas, plans or proposals to become self supportive and an asset for the town. Not another financial liability
