I think this this would be terrible for the town of Winchester. The country club will be cuttingRead Moredow n trees, blasting the landscape and adding fertilizer and pesticides to the land. There is no need for expanded golf facilities in Winchester. We should protect our hardwood forests, our wildlife and most importantly our wetlands.

The CC on April 10th submitted plans to the Town to deconstruct and reduce 28 acres of forest (oneRead Moreo f, if not the last large remaining tract of pristine forest left in our town aside from the Fells and Town Forest) to develope into a a second driving range with 20 more tee off boxes (guess you can never have too many driving ranges!), another parking lot, a 2 story learning center and a par 3 golf course. Which in their own estimation will take a year to devolope including blasting, clearcutting and massive regrading and require a special permit. Yet offer that they believe it won't have a negative impact on the wildlife, wetlands, run-off, the surrounding neighborhoods, streams, rivers down stream and the forest's ecological environment. The developers would have us believe putting a parking lot and building in the middle of a forest, a bridge to get there and mowing down trees for a driving range and golf course has no negative impact. We should all be sceptical especially after the Town voted down a much simpler plan for just a driving range in that very same place 10 years ago. I understand the developer's job here but simply put - If you take away the forest you just took away the forest!
