Here'a comment from Sherry Thaller from Facebook (facebook.com/NorthBranfordPatch): "Not to change the TOWN of N. Branford into a city."

My resolution is to make more residents aware that they can send budgets back to the town for cuts and that is the only way we can reduce our property taxes. The turnouts on budget referendums are horribly poor.

There should be two lanes all the way from Big Y to the "NEW" 139. I have lived in this town all of my life and am actually afraid of driving home on that stretch of road every night. I was pushed into the oncoming traffic the other night! The truck in front of me stopped and waved for me to pull in front of him because the person next to me was actually aiming her car into mine. The funny thing is she was never in front of me. I didn't even know she was there until my son started yelling that she was going to hit me. THIS SHOULD BE THE FIRST THING FIXED IN THE NEW YEAR ASAP...

I think the idea of sidewalks is wonderful! I also think that something should be done to curb or slow the traffic down on rt.150. The 18-wheelers, garbage trucks, ULine and cintas trucks drive ridiculously fast!

Fran What ever happened to the plans for a center green and gathering place which was to be at the Totoket Valley and Swajchuk property? We are the only town without a center. Some years back there were plans for a bandstand, gazebo, etc. It seems as they have gone by the wayside. I know we needed athletic fields, but those do not serve the entire population....Let's do some thinking about the rest of the residents and taxpayers.
