Letter: A 'no' vote can lead to a better project


A “no” vote on Feb. 8 negates this Brimbal Avenue project as currently designed. It does not mean there will be no development on Brimbal Avenue, but, hopefully, it means the city will carefully approve what kind of development occurs, as is stipulated in “overlay zoning.” It does not mean the Brimbal Avenue and Route 128 ramp improvements will never occur. It means that if the city wants to continue to pursue this, it will have to redesign the proposal and resubmit it to the state. It means we, the citizens of Beverly, should have a voice in that redesign and can help preserve the Brimbal Avenue neighborhoods and prevent our beautiful city from becoming one never-ending traffic jam.
