Very simply, the proposed site for relocating the carousel is equivalent to stuffing 10 pounds of potatoes into a 5-pound sack. The sliver of land wedged in between the cupola and the Mullen-Hall School playground is absolutely too small to accommodate the carousel, the proposed protective structure and people waiting for a ride along the Shivericks Pond Walkway.
And why would the town ever consider taking already limited playground space from Mullen-Hall School?
I am not opposed to the carousel (I am one of the few in my neighborhood who actually enjoys the music), but I am very opposed to the proposed site.
I hope my fellow Town Meeting members will vote no on Article 32.
