Hearing unveils details on Muckross project plan

An ambitious plan to acquire and transform more than 200 acres of private land into Vermont's 17th state park took shape Monday at a community meeting on the proposed Muckross project in Springfield.


  1. It sounds like a good thing - and taxes 'should be revenue neutral for the town'. Could even generate a little retail revenue in town.

    Uh-oh, my glasses have developed a rosy tint.

  2. A town that let the Miller Art Center fall into oblivion and yet is all excited about a new venture with other people's money. Anyone see a problem here? The stature of the Miller family in the town's history make the May family look like pikers.

  3. Don't worry, this is just Bernie Sander's version of socialism, which you shouldn't be afraid off...

    Unless you value your own money and private property.

    This boondoggle is just another ploy by the family of a late "political elite" class member to preserve the May estate and name at taxpayer expense - while also taking advantage of a hefty tax deduction.

    True to form, Springfield has been duped again!
