Duck, Duck, [Geese]...
Counting on "Friends of the Fells" Regarding Woodland Road "Development" (www.fells.org)
First noting the slight variation of a children's game (adults known to have fun playing too).
"Have you ever walked, jogged, pushed a carriage, rode a bike etc. along the path on Woodland Road (Spot Pond?
No need to ask whatever became of the Sheepfold [as it] was grazed by sheep to maintain a pastoral scene: there were 26 animals in 1909. In 1910 a new electric trolley ran from Somerville to Stoneham, stopping at the Sheepfold (tracks and bridges can still be seen there)."
"Friends" don't want future generations to ask: "What became of the walkway, joggers, baby carriages?"
"pleasure [without] vehicles" includes walking, bicycling, jogging, pushing carriages.

The Fells includes areas in Medford, Winchester, Stoneham, Melrose and Malden..."
Independent of "speed limit" posting near the <a href="http://www.mass.gov/dcr/recreate/skating.htm">skating rink vehicles approaching a <i>bend</i> towards Elm Street might also notice: the rotary, "crosswalk", bus stop -whereby obviously there could be people nearby - including those using the pathway. One might take note of the "mixed use" but disproportionate risk to those using other forms of pleasure vehicles.
Who is a <a href="http://www.fells.org">Friend of the Fells</a>? Someone locally "connected" or having virtual sentiment, at a distance, maybe akin to stating: "If the left [or anyone with real concern for the environs of one's 'backyard' as well as others] means anything, it means it’s concerned for the needs, welfare, and rights of the general population. So the left [/Friends] ought to be the overwhelming majority of the population, and in some respects I think it is." Noam Chomsky in an <a href="http://zena.secureforum.com/Znet/zmag/july00barsamian.htm">interview</a> with <a href="http://www.alternativeradio.org">David Barsamian</a>.
If one moves beyond words, or more accurately a single word of <a href="http://globetrotter.berkeley.edu/people2/Chomsky/chomsky-con3.html">concison</a> to describe someone as an "environmentalist" or "activist" (granted various degrees however characterized) then maybe concern and actions regarding air, <a href="http://www.thirdworldtraveler.com/Vandana_Shiva/Water_Wars_VShiva.html" title="public water, private profit, recalling 'risk and cost have to be socialized, profits privatized'- zena.secureforum.com/Znet/ chomsky/interviews/9811-wennerberg.html ">water</a>, "<a h="http://www.bpl.org/general/associates/literarylights.htm">Hegemony or Survival</a>" (like seeing <a href="http://www.afsc.org/pwork/0302/030205.htm">AFSC</a> Boston Public Library display, a refreshing surprise) might be an "overwhelming majority" - the same might be said <a href="http://www.democracynow.org/article.pl?sid=03/10/22/1450216">someday</a> of independent mass media.
The reach of concern above can hopefully apply to the proposed "development" that ought at minimum limit one not to accept "<a href="http://www.thirdworldtraveler.com/Chomsky/ConsentPOP_Chom.html">consent without consent</a>."
