Holden state commissioner of highways the Arlington Garden club has endorsed recommendations of the special committee appointed by the selectmen of Arlington and Sim. Der land for location of propose 1 a 7 and for the Access Rod Between the new and old highways. These recommendations Call for the so called a Slinde line for the main Road and an interchange near the Arlington cemeteries rather than farther North through Sunderland As proposed by the state Highway department. The full text of the letter is As follows a was a Garden club we Are greatly concerned with the conservation of the natural Beauty of the state and its resources and we believe that nothing should be done to damage or destroy these. It is on these things that the Economy of the state largely depends. A we Are seriously disturbed by plans for the proposed four Lane Highway through Bennington county and Trust that further study by the engineers concerned will result in modifications of these plans locating the Highway farther East. A since a Highway of the proposed dimensions cannot but create a noticeable change in the landscape through which it passes it is our feeling that it should traverse uninhabited areas wherever possible so As not to disrupt the communities along the Way. This is particularly True in the East Arlington in is Orth bet Lin flan Board chairman says he wont seek it Mike area and Sunderland Village both of which would be virtually destroyed of the original route of this proposed Highway were to be followed. A not Only would this seriously disturb the social and economic life of the communities in question but it would also damage the two towns financially by removing from the grand list Many of their most valuable properties. It is our feeling therefore that the so called a Slinde line would be a much More suitable location for the Highway than the line originally proposed known As the a red a it is our feeling that an interchange South of Arlington with an Access Road leading to . 7 near the Arlington cemeteries would not Only be More convenient but less destructive of valuable property and cheaper to construct than the one suggested by the state Highway commission.
