Board OK with Brox growth

MILFORD – The school board has no worries about Heron Pond School from a stone processing business on nearby Brox property.

Suzanne Fournier of Brox Environmental Citizens, a group that has been fighting the sale of town land to a Massachusetts company called Stoneyard, brought her concerns to the board last week.

"The general board consensus seemed to be that the property is far enough away from the Heron Pond School that there are no concerns about potential problems," Chairman Paul Dargie said in an email.

During the meeting Dargie and Selectmen Bob Willette spoke in favor of the sale.

Fournier maintains the operation will bring noise and dust and a loss of
scenic beauty.
