Why get caught un-prepared?

It is striking that the threat to the Holliston site has been known for more than 10 years: to Holliston Historical Society, and to NEARA members. I know of no effort (other than Bruce McAleer's attempts to contact the developer, long ago) to scope out and prevent the damage that is happening. You could see it coming, as I mentioned the orange flags in May. Why are we always caught "off guard" when development actually begins?

Shouldn't NEARA have a registry of threatened sites, and a plan? Well someone should and it takes money. If there are any rich people reading this, think what an endowment might do to help protect sites before the damage starts.
