Rumford Rifle Range

Posted

PUBLIC MEETING in PERSON & ON SITE Learn about the RUMFORD RIFLE RANGE REMEDIAL ACTION CLEANUP.
Hello All,

Regarding this Cleanup: Curious, after all these years, we have left this area alone. People have been walking, hiking, biking, dirt biking, walking their pets and fishing in that area for a VERY long time!!

Now, "all of a sudden" there is a "need" to clean up the area?? This area is some of the last open space that we have in Rumford.

The "main" reason that this is happening (IMO) is because the Igus, Inc. Company, located at 257 Ferris Ave., wants to expand.

Just doing the clean-up will severely impact this area, AND the wildlife that inhabits the last bit of open area in our community!

We pay our taxes to the city of East Providence to provide our citizens all the services required to run our city....NOT, to completely turn it into a "Bedroom Community”!

I guess it is time for all us "Rumfordites" to start our own "Keep Metacomet Green" campaign...
"KRG".. KEEP RUMFORD GREEN!!

To all my fellow East Providence residents: We failed trying to save Metacomet, let’s not repeat that failure in Rumford.

Thank you!
Raymond Bassett
