Kingston: Selectmen Vote to Allow Plymouth Access to Land Thru William Gould Way

Plymouth and Kingston have feuded over the border west of Route 3 for decades. It began when Pyramid partners proposed building a mall on the Plymouth side in 1985. Downtown Plymouth merchants objected. Land owner John Hamilton and Kingston welcomed the mall on its side. Downtown Plymouth business died. Gary Darman owned land on the Plymouth side and when the new Route 44 came past it he built Colony Place. Stores left the Kingston mall for the new place. So, when Plymouth needed access over Kingston’s William Gould Way to commercially zoned land between Colony Place and Route 3, Kingston selectmen said no way. Kingston’s legal counsel told selectmen they could no longer block access.

Here’s Kingston Chairman of Selectmen Elaine Fiore:
