Adeline Hume: Don’t let Retreat happen
To the editor:
I don’t like the idea of The Retreat because North Amherst and Cushman are quiet parts of Amherst.
My grandfather lives on Summer Street in North Amherst, which is close to Cushman, and it is normally quiet.
If the Retreat happens, it will be quite noisy and there will be college students driving by all the time. I live on a street that is almost all college students, and there is a lot of litter and noise.
If the Retreat happens, it will be the same with Cushman. Personally, I think Cushman is a nice place to live because it is very pretty. If the Retreat happens, students will have parties and it will be noisy for people who live in Cushman. I think students should live on campus because that way they will have more supervision.
