Dear Belmont Planning Board,
We are writing to oppose the proposal by The Belmont Hill School to destroy a woodland to build a parking lot and maintenance facility. This proposal, if approved, would devastate a vibrant natural ecosystem, disrupt a peaceful neighborhood, create pollution, and exacerbate traffic. The project is not in line with the environmental concerns of the community, the country or the planet. The scale is totally inappropriate.
Please reject their proposal. Tell the Belmont Hill School to find a way to use their land in a reasonable, sustainable and environmentally friendly way, consistent with the values of Belmont.
Below are signatures and comments from 1000 Belmont residents. Each marker in the map is at the home of someone who signed the petition.
