Cliff Wilson's projects
The area along the Sudbury river leading from Front Street to 135 has a lot of visual potential. Right now it is mostly abutted by the back of the warehouse space, but it could become a very attractive walking/retail space.
When a train goes through, traffic turning left onto Front St can still get through. Likewise, traffic turning right onto Main St from Front St still moves. I believe a rotary would get clogged each time a train goes by and traffic is heavy. Has this been studied?
I manage a commercial property in downtown Ashland. I have two spaces under 250 sq ft. Both have been advertised as office or retail space. There was very little interest in office space downtown, and both are currently leased as retail.
I own this property. I planned to convert the home into a single family estate that would bring back the charm and beauty of the house but life has thrown a few curve balls my way and I have been unable to complete it. Sorry.
My hope is any potential buyer sees the beauty and history in the property and makes it beautiful again.
This project includes the possible gravesite of Nancy Stimson in either Lot #3 or Lot#2. The property was at one time part of the Frankland Farm property. West Union Street from Frankland Road to Hopkinton did not exist at the time. Nancy was died of smallpox and was buried at the far end of the property.
This is one of the worst project proposals that I have ever seen. This project tears at the historic fabric of Ashland, burdens the traffic on Rt. 135, threatens the water and sewer supply, will necessitate increases in the police and fire departments, will necessitate increases in the school department. This plan offers nothing to the Town of Ashland. The ecology of the area is endangered by possible damage to the spring that runs through the property. It has a total negative impact. The developer should hide his head in shame.
This is one of the best plans that I have ever seen proposed in Ashland.
