      Hi!
       I may not speak. I realize this verges on the political for this discussion group, however the problem is it is not far from to the Hopkinton City Historic District as well as highly probable the Hopkinton Historical Cemetery#80 is on the site.
       I have applied for appointment to another land use committee, as an alternate member of the local zoning board of review, so I prefer a lower public profile as far as public statements. I have concerns about the proposal being touted for the site as well as any development, until the cemetery issue is resolved.
      Regards,
      Scott

      Hi!
       This is time sensitive. Tomorrow evening, Wednesday, July 1,2009; at Ashaway Elementary School, Hillside Avenue, Ashaway, R.I.,  the Hopkinton, R.I., Planning Board will be considering the Love's Truck Stop proposal located on Exit#1, off Interstate#95 in Hopkinton. This would be Route#3,.
       It relevance here is the location of Hopkinton Historical Cemetery# 80, which is the cemetery of the "town farm" where the poor of Hopkinton were buried and cared for. This cemetery is clearly "missing" but should be located before any type of development takes place.
       The Hopkinton Historical Association is taking a leadership role in this proposal and has formed a committee concerning it. W. Edward Wood, is chairing it. Contact Mr. Wood with any questions at ed.wood@worldnet. att.net or ed.wood@att. net ,. One of these or both should work.
       If you think you have forgotten family members in this cemetery you should be concerned. apparently no outside sign of these burials is visible on the surface. It is virtually certain the cemetery is on this property. Of interest when the town farm closed in Hopkinton, I recall no massive removal or graves to another site.
       Tomorrow the Planning Board will conduct a hearing on the matter. It is vital everything be put on record so when it is appealed in court which is highly likely, the court will make a judgment as I understand it solely on the record testimony. If attending and using Interstate #95 go south on Route#3, probably more three miles to entrance of Hillside Avenue.
       A number of family surnames are involved.
       FYI! BTW I am 56 today!
       Sharing with my Genealogy List, Mr. Wood, and other contacts through "Bcc:",.
      Relatively yours,
      Scott
