    Luxury mixed use on Alden St ? These developers do exaggerate just a bit.

    Wonderful! Hundreds if not thousands of new vehicles traveling on Fall Rivers already crumbling roads. More stress on an already weakening gas and electric grid. But hey they’ll still be debating wind power in Fall River and Somerset well into the next decade. All the usual hype comes along anytime our City sees a project costing about 5% of Fall Rivers yearly budget. Hundreds of millions spent over the years and Fall River is in the worst condition probably ever. Only way out of this degradation spiral is manufacturers and their jobs!!!

    We got to build some housing for the undocumented Americans that we’ve been accepting into our city. I am proud to live in a gateway community doing our fair share for all world citizens.

    Just as long as everything built is MARKET VALUE then good for you. Otherwise you sold your souls for more and more crime.
