I will try to personally thank each of you, but, for now, a big group hug is in order. The overwhelming Town Meeting vote to reverse the disastrous See More

THE STORY:

We are a group of Medfield residents, some immediate neighbors of the Peak House plus others who care about the town's history and character -- especially this, the most iconic building in our little town! We are raising funds specifically for one and only one use: to fight a totally-inappropriate use for land immediately behind the Peak House to build a 75,000 sq. ft. for-profit 41' high assisted-living facility on a more than half-acre footprint, which would completely dominate the viewscape of the 21' high Peak House, jeopardize the important Vine Brook tributary to the Charles River and a fragile vernal pool, and create unacceptable traffic and safety risks -- all at a time when there are other sites (including the former Medfield State Hospital), that would be ideal for such a facility, rather than dumping it in a totally residential neighborhood and dramatically impacting an critical ecosystem. The funds are needed immediately, and will be used solely to pay for a skilled land-use attorney and for other professionals such as an environmental consultant with specific expertise in wetlands issues. These professionals are helping to make a strong case before the town boards. The neighbors have paid all these expenses to date, but the real estate developer has deep pockets, so we are reaching out to people who care about Medfield's beauty, history and environmental quality to share the burden. 50% of any excess funds would be donated to the Medfield Historical Society to preserve the town's other historical resources, and 50% to Friends of Medfield Seniors to support their services to our seniors.
