Milton Continued from page 23 has possession of the last surviv- ing cupola. "I always wanted to save it, for the town, if it is wanted, or for myself, if the town has no use for it," Blayney said. "It would not be appropriate to place it on the pre- sent library building, its not of the architectural style; it is the type of structure meant to be on a barn or outbuilding." He explained that he saw that one cupola was destroyed when demolition workers tried to re- move it with a bucket, and he wanted to act before the last one literally bit the dust. "Dennis told me that the re- mainder of the roof was insecure, but I was welcome to try to re- trieve the cupola," Blayney said. "He and some of the workers helped me, and we managed to get it down in one piece." Parkinson said that Blayney, and the employees who helped him, saved the cupola, and he saw nothing wrong with him removing the structure from the demolition site. Second Continued from page 22 part of the project. "Because the present spaces aren't uniform in their sizes, we would actually end up with more parking spaces than we have now. But the street de- partment has expressed concern about snow removal problems re- sulting from street pockets. The engineer, in response, has re- turned with a plan that results in fewer tree pockets extending into the street while adding some pockets - 4 feet by 8 feet - back in "The county did not want any- thing of the old building; the town had offered anything, and some people came and took things, like doors and some paneling," Parkin- son said. "People had ample op- portunity to speak up and take what they wanted. Bob [Stickels] told me to take anything I want- ed." He said no one from the library officially requested anything from the building. Mary Katherine Hudson, county librarian, said that she had consid- ered keeping the cupola in the ex- isting library building, either for display or to put aside until the de- sign was known for an addition or for a new building. She said that her interest was to keep it on the site since the county owns the library and purchased the civic center that bore the cupo- las. Blayney explained that the cupola is too large for display in- side, and he did not think that it would be appropriate for any fu- ture use connected to library ex- pansion or new construction. "I want it put on the record, that type of object, that style, belongs on a barn, a maintenance build- ing," he said. the sidewalks." Vessels said her committee on the last go-around suggested keeping whatever street pockets could be kept but removing the sidewalk pockets. "Putting those sidewalk pock- ets in will only result in narrow sidewalks in some places, stress the sidewalks over time and still create conflicts between the build- ings and the larger trees. I under- stand the engineering firm is working on the plan again and the next step will be a workshop to discuss the results. That's where we stand - or idle, as the case may be." "I don't see it fitting in with the library, and I can't imagine putting it inside the building. It's just something that is decorative to place over a vent or exhaust of an outbuilding. "But, putting it on the library is like another digital clock belongs on the library." The matter received no further discussion after Parkinson said, 'Tll tell you this, if Bob [Blayney] didn't get it when he did, it would be in the trash dump."
