3. Uncer­tainty over Spa­niard’s Bay de­vel­op­ment

The Compass - - FRONT PAGE -

Am­bi­tious plans to de­velop a sprawl­ing busi­ness park in Spa­niard’s Bay-tilton seemed to stall in 2011, but of­fi­cials are deny­ing spec­u­la­tion that the project is dead.

Af­ter a flurry of site work in late 2010, ac­tiv­ity came to a sud­den halt, and con­struc­tion equip­ment has been re­moved from the site.

But those close to the project, in­clud­ing mu­nic­i­pal lead­ers, con­tin­ued to voice op­ti­mism that Vet­er­ans Me­mo­rial Busi­ness Park will be­come a re­al­ity.

Those be­hind the project have de­clined in­ter­view re­quests in re­cent months, but sources have said the project is tak­ing longer than orig­i­nally ex­pected.

Con­struc­tion ac­tiv­ity has stopped at a pro­posed busi­ness park in Spa­niard’s Bay, but town of­fi­cials re­main con­fi­dent the project will pro­ceed.
