The Center Mall will be fully developed. I see the Superior Electric industrial park filled with new businesses as well as some old ones who’ve expanded locally. The hospital will continue to evolve, expand and be a critical part of the city despite all the competition and legislative challenges they’ll face. The Boys’ and Girls’ Club, with the help of ESPN, will be completed in its new site and will be a focal point for youth activity in town.
Traffic on route six will of course continue to be a nightmare. The new route 72 extension will cause more problems than it solves. There will still be no parking at City Hall. In 2035 both Tom O’Brien and Barbara Doyle will still be serving the Board of Ed. Art Ward will be gearing up for the next election, and Greg Fradette will still stop at Dunkin Donuts every morning at nine after he gets the mail from the Post Office.
