Meadow Walk Project Vote Monday, June 13 at 7:30 at the LS Auditorium

The Meadow Walk project will be the redevelopment of the former Raytheon site. Last Tuesday night the Board of Selectmen unanimously approved the Development Agreement for the project (which includes several monetary contributions to the town – like $500K for fields, $100K for the Senior Center transportation needs, $850K for improved technology in Sudbury schools and municipal buildings, and $2 million in traffic improvements to Route 20, among other items). So in addition to getting a great project, the town also gets funds to mitigate impacts and improve town infrastructure. See the press release from Sudbury’s town web site for all the terms and contributions in the agreement.

The Board of Selectmen also unanimously voted to support all three Special Town Meeting articles for the project that will be voted on this coming Monday, June 13 at 7:30 at the LS Auditorium. We urge you to attend Special Town Meeting this Monday at 7:30 at the High School.

Here is the warrant: articles 1, 2 and 3 deal with the project, and note the map, it’s a good picture of what we’ll all be voting on: https://sudbury.ma.us/townmeeting/warrant_06-13-16_vf2/.

The vote on Monday, June 13 2016 is just for the Whole Foods, village-style retail, memory care facility and age-restricted condominiums. The adjoining 40B housing development is being permitted under a separate process before the Zoning Board of Appeals.

May Meeting Followup: Protect Sudbury News And Information!

13220651_1067553613316559_7315888663604046193_oOn Tuesday May 10th Jim Gish who is a 23 year resident of Sudbury and serves as the Director of Environmental Outreach for Protect Sudbury, presented to members of the Chamber of Commerce and residents of Sudbury the Eversource proposal to construct a new 115-kilovolt (kV) transmission line between Sudbury and Hudson, Ma and the negative effects it will have on the town.

The Protect Sudbury mission is to prevent the installation of high voltage transmission lines through Sudbury by building awareness, by recruiting and organizing thousands of concerned neighbors, business owners and friends and by obtaining their support.

The proposed project would run a new line between the Eversource substation in Sudbury, near Buddy Dog on route 20, and the Hudson Light and Power substation in Hudson, passing through our neighborhoods, our business district, and conservation lands of Sudbury, Marlborough, Stow, and Hudson.

This project would consist of 8.9 miles of both overhead and underground line. The 7.6-mile overhead portion would be located within an existing Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) railroad bed that runs through Historic Districts, Sudbury neighborhoods as well Conservation areas. The underground portion is proposed for Hudson only. The above ground portion will be built on monopoles 75’ to 105’ tall.

Tuesday nights event was well attended and very informative. To learn more about Protect Sudbury and the Eversource project, please visit www.ProtectSudbury.org. We invite you to learn more about the Sudbury Chamber of Commerce. Please visit our website, www.Sudbury.org or email us.
