As of June 8th, the Town of Weston finally owns the Case Estates. The remediation work taken on by Harvard has concluded and the lot known as Parcel 9 is currently undergoing some partial remediation work, as well.
Now that the land finally belongs to Weston, how we as a community use the Case Estates is a question to be answered by all residents, so public input will be vital and necessary in the planning process.
On September 29th, Landscape Architect Thomas Wirth presented a draft master plan for the Case Estates to help future planning of the land. His drawing can be found below. This plan was shaped by the following:
On March 12th, Selectman Michael Harrity hosted a public hearing to provide an overview and update on the land and to solicit feedback from residents. The Selectmen engaged Mr. Wirth to review the land in conjunction with past recommendations from two former committees (those reports can be found on the right) in order to help the Town understand the land potential.
On June 18th, Selectman Harrity and Mr. Wirth hosted a public visioning session to begin the visioning and planning of the 62.5 acres of historic open land and buildings that finally belong to the Town.
