About a dozen residents attended a public hearing Monday to learn more, and some voiced their concern about environmental situations on the site.
Money has been raised to fully purchase the land without using tax dollars.
The town’s goal to purchase the parcel is critical to access Keyes Memorial Park after the EPA cleanup at the old Fletcher site begins as early as next year. The only entranceway to Keyes will be blocked during the cleanup, which could last up to two years.
