A special public comment session has been scheduled at the beginning of the Board of Selectmen meeting set for tonight, Thursday, March 21.
The time will be devoted exclusively to discussion about a possible town purchase of 48 Norfield Road, the historic house and property on the corner of Norfield and Weston roads.
The town is considering buying the one-acre property once owned by former First Selectman George Guidera for $750,000.
First Selectman Gayle Weinstein said she thinks it is “an important piece of property” given that it’s contiguous to the rest of the town campus that includes town hall, the library, Norfield firehouse, the communications center and police department, Jarvis House, and the schools.
Town administrators are considering moving Weston’s land use offices, now located in the Town Hall Annex on School Road, to the house if it is purchased and renovated.
However, Ms. Weinstein said, the board really wants to hear from the public about the proposal to buy the property.
The selectmen’s meeting is set to begin at 7:30 p.m. in the Meeing Room at Weston Town Hall.
