The Friends of the Thomaston Green is a citizen's organization with the mission of preserving the Thomaston Green as open space.
Thank you to everyone for your hard work and efforts to help save the Thomaston Green.
We have a lot to be proud of…many hours of thinking, planning, and meeting. Many thousands of dollars donated from friends and neighbors to help get the word out. A multi-faceted marketing campaign including lawn signs, banners, handouts, PowerPoint presentation, pledge cards, direct mail campaign, Facebook ads and posts, and an email campaign. Many hundreds of hours of going door to door, chatting with our neighbors to answer questions and make sure everyone understood the issues.
Although we did not prevail at the polls, with 347 voting yes on 4 and 369 voting no, those who wish to see development of The Green do not have a mandate to do so. The margin, 22 votes, was very very close. We sent a strong signal that Thomaston residents value the most expansive park space we have. In the future we can scrutinize and mobilize to vote against proposals that exploit that beautiful space. We will remain loyal friends and stewards of The Green…nothing can be built there without our vote.
We have a very hard-working and dedicated team of people who care a great deal, so this is a shout-out to everyone…thank you from the bottom of our hearts! We are so grateful for your support and your votes.
