On being a selectman


Last Thursday evening I attended, but never got around to reporting on, the Downtown Study Committee and the initial meeting of the Committee to be Named Later (the one studying what to do about the Medfield State Hospital).

The Downtown Study Committee considered

  • becoming a Tree City
  • putting utilities underground on North Street when the construction is performed.  NSTAR representative will attend the next meeting
  • sidewalk tree mulching
  • outdoor eating establishments

The new committee on the Medfield State Hospital heard updates from John Thompson, chair of SHERC on the environmental clean up and its current status, and from  Bill Massaro on the history of the redevelopment negotiations for the site, as well as the experiences of other former state hospital sites.
