In part two of our three-part series, Voices Along the Herring River, we hear from Judy Ellis, who lives adjacent to the project area. Ellis and her neighbor are the only private property owners, out of 17 impacted by the project, who chose not to allow flooding on their land. Ellis is 73 and has lived in the same house for more than 20 years, surrounded by her finches, her wind chimes and her collections.
Since this interview was recorded, the Select Board for the Town of Truro has voted to withdraw from the first phase of the Herring River restoration project, citing concerns over liability.
On Thursday this week, Mindy Todd will host an hour-long discussion on The Point, looking at the Herring River Restoration project. We welcome your phone calls at 866-999-4626, emails at firstname.lastname@example.org.
