Town Administrator Jim Smith said at the selectmen’s July 16 meeting he and Town Planner Jen Hager met with Art Allen of Eco Tech to discuss the next phase of the development of Shaw Farm. Smith said it was decided to focus on Shaw Lane as well as the parking lot. He said there are also plans to eliminate the house on the property. The town is in the process of hiring a firm to complete the design of the Shaw lane and the parking lot.
Smith said Fire Chief Matt Belsito has asked about doing a “controlled burn” on the house so the fire department can practice. Smith said the plan is to wait a couple of years and let the debt roll off before looking at things like the track and the highway department facility.
