Letter: Quality of life is issue in Becket
To the editor:
The construction of a new turnpike exit between Lee and Westfield will do way more harm than good. More car and truck traffic, more noise, more exhaust fumes. Can't deny that. Becket especially will become a "pass-through" town for vehicles on their way to the larger towns nearby. Other towns will be negatively impacted in this way too.
Shame on those officials who, by supporting an exit, endanger the bucolic quality of life that full-time residents now enjoy and cherish and which, for many years, has attracted second-home owners and campers to Becket.
Ann and I. David Krawet,
