Been reading about this alot. The idea of the colleges getting together and pooling resources to build a skating rink is not a bad idea.. Take a look at the rinks in Marlboro. Six skating rinks constantly rented out, imagine how many people go there that end up shopping somewhere else on Solomon Pond Road???
I will admit, however, the more I look at it -- I am not too sure about the library parking lot. What about Wyman Gordon Parcel or South Worcester Industrial Park??
As far as a office/retail building in the library parking lot? Just do not think downtown Worcester has a need. The other day I was in the Harvard-Pilgrim offices at Harrington Corner. The offices are amazing!! Other then that the rest of the building is pretty much empty and there is already alot of office space and retail space already available downtown.
Bottom line the colleges wanted to build a skating rink should be supported, but lets find another location.
