LEOMINSTER — State Rep. Dennis Rosa is seeking funds for a study to determine what impact the state’s development and marketing of the former Fort Devens Army base is having on surrounding communities, specifically Leominster, Fitchburg and Gardner.
“It’s a big worry for those cities,” said the Leominster Democrat about why he has made funding for the study his top priority for the upcoming legislative session.
In a letter outlining his top three budget priorities to the chairman of the House Committee on Ways and Means, Rosa requested not less than $100,000 to prepare the comprehensive study.
