MSH planning

About 100+ residents gathered to get input and share ideas at the MHS last night about the future of the former Medfield State Hospital site.  I found the input exciting and stimulating, and now I am looking forward to getting a synthesis of those ideas and opinions back from the consultants at VHB.  Below is the agenda for the program.

Learn about topics and share your “wish list” at each of the following “Exploration Stations”:

Themes                                                                 – Open Land & Natural Environment
