  1. I have worked and lived in Watertown for many years. I hope to stay in this town but rents keep rising which makes it hard to imagine it for the long haul. Great town!!! I love the growth but fear the impact on housing availability.

  2. Still hoping to hear about plans for elderly housing in Watertown. The waiting list is getting longer all the time.
