In response to the claim that “The fact is that Dover Watch, like it or not, is a resort,” I disagree.
The fact is Dover Watch is located in a neighborhood, my neighborhood. Aside from the condominiums located below this eyesore, it is surrounded by single family homes, beautiful old apple orchards, bear, deer, moose, fox, and wild turkey habitat. Isn’t that what the town plan was designed to protect for our future generations to enjoy?
It would be a sad day indeed to conclude that this property should be further scarred by amending the very town plan that should be protecting it. My suggestion is that the town should take over this property entirely, reclaim it, and preserve it as wild habitat. In its current state, with a proven failed development plan, Dover Watch is, has been, and continues to be a liability to the town, certainly not an asset. Unless of course the town is planning to go into the timeshare business?
