A Controversial Fence, Avery Dirt and Long Commutes
A look back at the most notable stories from the last week.
When a letter written by a Whiting Avenue resident was published on Dedham Patch this week, it touched of a hot debate over whether or not a fence should have been erected in the Whiting and Morse avenues area.
While attorney Jonathan Eichman maintains that the path that is currently blocked was never established as a public way and that there is no obligation by the town to “keep it open for public passage."
Residents like the Clintons, however, believe that their rights have been violated. What’s your take on the situation? Be sure to make your voice heard in the comment section.
Elsewhere this week, the School Building Rehabilitation Committee met on Monday night to update residents on the progress of the school and talk further about the mound of dirt that exists at the property. However, a decision has not yet been made on what to do with the dirt, as the committee wants to research more before taking a vote.
