Yesterday (4/13/13) our non-profit met with the Wood Island Working Group (Kittery's Committee that recommended demolition of the Station on March 25).
There was no progress on any agreement with Kittery to reverse their plan to level the place at a cost of $250,000 to the taxpayers of Kittery. In fact, it was apparent that they have no intention of doing anything but demolishing the Station.
But they did agree to a public workshop on May 29th with the full Kittery Town Council at Town Hall from 6:00 to 7:00 PM.
All supporters of the Wood Island Station are strongly encouraged to spread the word of this date and place and be there to tell the Council not to demolish the Station!
Dear Friends of the Wood Island Station:
If you did not see the recent article in the Herald, click here.
Kittery's committee has recommended spending as much as $250,000 of town money to tear down a historic building that our non profit is offering to restore and maintain at no cost to Kittery.
It just doesn't make sense.
We have asked for a meeting with the Town Council to discuss this. Will let you know what comes next.
