LETTER: What Is The History of Nobscot Worth?

FRAMINGHAM – To most of us; $10,000 is lot of money. In this case it is not.

The city can accept the chapel high bid from Mr Rose/Centercorp of $50,000 or they can accept the bid of $40,001 from local businessman and Nobscot resident Rick McKenna.

While the high bid is from Centercorp; a bid Review Committee would not be needed if the bid was simply going to be awarded to the highest bidder.

The question is; what is best for the city and the village of Nobscot?

Do we need a big box CVS on a busy street corner that could simply be built on land that Mr Rose already owns; or do we allow a local Nobscot resident/builder and investor to re-position, restore and re- purpose the chapel as a small deli/cafe with an outside patio with an available community meeting room for Nobscot functions?

I for one; believe the history and thoughtful restoration of the chapel is worth a lot more than $10,000.

Hopefully; the Review Committee comes to the same decision.
