Comments on MarketStreet Lynnfield Traffic Study

March 31, 2017

​We’ve been reading National Development’s traffic report. It’s great they have such a sense of humor. “Imperceptible increases in traffic” really– do they have eyes ?. Any additions to traffic will only worsen what Chief Breen has already said.

Here is the truth about Market Street traffic.

"TRAFFIC WILL BE ONEROUS AND OVERWHELMING AT TIMES"
Lynnfield Police Chief David Breen on 8/19/13 at the Selectman’s Meeting discussing security plans for Market Street.

This from the person entrusted with public safety 365 days a year. Not a report on a couple of selected days.

And this was before National Development proposed two large, heavy traffic producing buildings
Despite the ND spin your eyes tell you traffic is at times overwhelming.

National Development and their vendor VHB will bury you in traffic reports that are words with no reality. A report paid for by ND gets the results they want–shocking.
Are you familiar with the expression –Lies,damn lies and statistics ?​

National Development Traffic Study

March 30, 2017

Click on the following link to download a copy of the National Development Traffic Study.  A few initial questions:

  1. Why were they doing the traffic counts in early 2016.  Were they starting to think of the cinema even then?
  2. Has MA DOT reviewed the study?
  3. Why when the originaal VHB study said that the intersection would go from an “F” (lowest) to a “C” and it hasn’t should we have any confidence this time?

Cinema, Parking Garage and two story building

March 21, 2017

At last nights Selectmen’s meeting Ted Tye and others from National Development were there to present a brief statement about the article they submitted late yesterday afternoon.

The article calls for an 800 seat Cinema. Yes, for the 3rd time they are asking to break the agreement they signed when the area was rezoned. They also said they would be building a two story garage. As part of his brief statement Ted Tye said there would not be an impact on traffic.

The cinema and garage are in addition to the two story building he is asking for before the Planning Board.

More information later today on our website
