Environmental Concerns in Town

I received the following email from a resident.  Although not specifically about the North 40, it does tie into discussions we had on the North 40 Steering Committee regarding reduction of open space in Town, as well as, the possible implications that the closure of Hardy may have on what gets developed (if anything) on the North 40.

The School Facilities Committee’s (SFC) recommendation is awaiting approval from the School Committee on building a new 536 student school where Upham is currently located. This new buildout requires blasting of considerable amounts of ledge and reduction of open space.   A decent amount of woodland and ledge would need to be removed. 

The School Committee will vote on this proposal this month (possibly at the January 26th meeting).
