Planning board made right call on college

To the editor:

I agree with Sandy Hayes that the village planning board made a wise decision to reject the NCCC Welcome Center project.

It is hard to believe that North Country Community College even NEEDS a welcome center! One can find advertising reruns on the radio, newspaper and television ad nauseam about North Country Community College.

But if we must burn taxpayer dollars, Frank Casier’s idea is best. The old River Street School would make a great welcome center.

It is comforting to know we have such a wise planning board.

We like to believe that people in high places know it all and they make the right decisions. Then, to the benefit of whom?
