Last month, “06880” praised the greening of the old Shaw’s parking lot.
Yesterday morning, the flowering cherry trees that stood between the lot and the Post Road were gone. Only the stumps remained. Several hours later, they vanished too.
Westporters wonder: Why were the beautiful, mature trees removed? Will they be replaced? If so, by what?
An upscale store moves into Shaw’s next month. Right now, the new Fresh Market is fronted by lots of dead space.
