Plans to redevelop the Dana Home and adjacent property on Mass Ave into an inn and restaurant are making the preliminary rounds among town boards, and they're receiving mixed reviews from officials and neighbors.
While most agree that an inn would be an appropriate use for the old retirement residence, some have expressed concerns about the scale, the parking and the restaurant. Trisha Perez Kennealy, the woman behind the project, says she welcomes suggestions as she makes plans to create an inn/restaurant that's enjoyed by tourists and locals alike.
So, with that in mind, we want to know, What do you think about plans to redevelop the Dana Home as an inn? Do you think 22 rooms and a 14-tabletop restaurant is too much for the residential area? If not an inn, what are some other ideas for the property?
