Letter: Plan for future, but don't forget past, Andover


The Andover Townsman article Oct. 11 highlighted the Shawsheen River Watershed Association outing being held on Fosters Pond and not the river. Seems that group can’t even navigate its namesake river!

It’s impractical to return to the yesteryears of Andover, but somehow I remembered it was an easier place to live. Today’s downtown shopping seems appealing to those with more spendable income and not one on a budget. The congestion of downtown vehicle traffic can be heavy at times, but Manhattan is worse. Future movement on Andover streets will not improve as major tracts of land along Interstate 93 will impact all Andover resources. Planning for the future is now, but let’s not forget the past.
