Should the town purchase Common St. camp site?

August 12, 2014

The Walpole Sewer and Water Commission has been discussing the possibility of the town purchasing the property formerly occupied by the Sharon Country Day Camp, to protect it from potential development given that it is in area 1 of the aquifer.

One potential way of paying for the property will be through the sewer and water budget, without the need for a tax override.

Apparently a housing developer has already expressed interest in potentially building on the site.

The camp closed in February after 51 years of operation. The site is about 24 acres, near School Meadow Brook, and includes a small swimming and boating pond.
