The owner of “Maplecroft” in Fall River is not afraid of litigation nor pursuing first steps leading to such when it comes to opening and operating Lizzie Borden’s home.
The city’s long time motto is “We’ll Try” however, they rarely succeed when it comes to successful, sustainable development. Now the city is considering changing the motto to “Build it Here”. (Somebody bring me a chair because I can’t remain upright laughing this hard.)
Aside from having a crook for a mayor, I think many of those in City Hall with discretionary powers are actually alien beings – you know, “the Grays”. They look like us but….
Anyway, I digress. Donald Woods has reached into his deep pockets repeatedly to be in compliance with the City that “tries” (to make things really difficult) when it comes to obtaining the necessary permits to open and operate 306 French Street. But with every accommodation the City comes back with something else. Soon the State of Massachusetts will have to make the decision. Read the latest HERE
My money’s on Mr. Woods. I know him. He’s a friend of mine. And he is a man of his word. He said he was going to open Maplecroft to the public and he will.
