We want to thank you for all of the support you have shown us over the years, especially over the past week as we went before the Lynnfield Board of Appeals.
While we presented our case and were allowed a fair hearing, the ZBA postponed a decision on our spring until a future date (September, October, or later). They allowed us sufficient time to present our case and a few of the neighbors provided their opposition.
If one thing was made clear by this hearing is that we need more tolerance and understanding in the world. It is our belief that the spring provides a hate-free place where people are brought together for a common cause of nutrition and spirituality. We will keep you posted on things but until then, let’s keep the dialogue going on something that is most important to all of us … water!
We heard from you and the Lynnfield ZBA heard from you. THANK YOU! We know how much you love the spring and are especially happy to share some of the posts that we received. Here is one and please keep them coming:
Dear folks at Boston Clear Water or Pocahontas Spring,I have been going to this beautiful mineral spring for a few years now and am so grateful that this water has been open to all of us who value fresh and live mineral spring water. This is a rare opportunity! I travel 40 minutes as often as I need to get this water and it is the only water I drink… I have sent many people to the spring who also travel far and wide to get this delicious spring water. Many people feel that this water has improved their health as do I. Beyond being able to get this water to drink, this spring has been a refuge, a beautiful place to go and sit in nature for me. Nestled in this residential neighborhood it is like a surprise retreat place.I do not understand how this could be closed down and not available to the public! The owners have been so generous in making this available to all. They are certainly not making money there but out of generosity of spirit they make it available because they understand how important good fresh clean water is to those who are interested in health!Please don’t even consider closing this incredible resource to those of us who value and take advantage of this special water and serene place.Thank you,Kailia S.
