I spoke with Christine Rivers today who told me these meetings are being held to answer questions and ease fears of Putnam residents about a tax increase due to the proposal to build the new Regional Community YMCA Family Center. She explained that the 15 acres of land will be donated by Wheelabrator Putnam Inc. and that there is a state gift of 14 million to construct! No tax increase! Now that's what I like to hear!
I don't have all the facts but am very interested in having a facility bring new community spirit to Northeast, CT!
