What would you like to see done with Governor Stoughton's property in Milton?

The Board of Selectmen will be taking a public vote June 27 regarding proposals received for the future use of the 40-acre property. In his will, Colonial-era Massachusetts governor William Stoughton stated the property should benefit the poor of Milton. Read more on the story.

I think it would be nice to build a big sports complex that residents of milton could enjoy. The residents that could not otherwise afford athletics should be covered free of charge while others would pay a reduced cost (which would generate enough $ for the complexes upkeep). This would allow of rental of space for meetings, events, foodbanks really anything milton residents wanted to host.
I know Milton has a reputation of being a yuppy town. I am a young working professional and i can't afford to live there...but then again i don't think that it is my "right" to either. People who make great salaries and want to pay a big price to live in a house with a big yard and other successful neighbors should have the right to. I strive to be able to some day...but again, i don't think affordable housing is a good idea for Milton. I would like the right to a Benz...can i have one of those too?
