Do we really need a large Park and Ride?

Please join me in opposition to a State designed proposal for an 80 parking space park and ride at the fire station in Putney.

I see a number of glaring (pun) problems with this project;

1. Multiple Tree removal, unsightly development.
2. Street lights always on (six lights) at a time when we are attempting to lower electric usage state-wide
3. More black top, more run off, at time when we are still learning about the negative effects of clearing land and making parking lots.
4. No real study of actual needs, more chances of vandalism, more traffic near the town. Who really needs this?
