Draft list of 2018 Medfield STM Articles

Draft warrant articles for STM

The Board of Selectmen has discussed, but not yet set a date for a fall special town meeting (STM).  We have been considering October 22 as the possible date.  The STM was initially intended to discuss and vote on the master plan for the former Medfield State Hospital site, but where the new Development Committee will look to get some Requests For Information (RFI) to test the proposed MSH plan before enacting a zoning change, the STM on the MSH disposition will need to be postponed.  However, the fall STM may still go ahead with the articles below.  The Council on Aging has also asked to add an article to appropriate $19,000 to continue its Saturday opening of The Center.
