Cottage Gets New Home
With discussion about development and mixed use of the 70-acre Walsh property well underway, what to do about eight uninhabited cottages on the site is undecided. But according to this month’s Truro Talks, the municipal newsletter, one of them is soon to be moved to town-owned land at 25 South Highland Road.
“The intent is to use this building as workforce housing, while also saving demolition costs on Walsh Way,” according to the newsletter.
The cottages are all located in the southwestern part of the Walsh property, inside a 28.5-acre section that consultants hired by the town have judged to be developable. The cottage to be moved is one that was “deemed safe for renovation.” The 25 South Highland Road parcel does not require any zoning changes and has not been designated as a sensitive habitat area. —Sophie Mann-Shafir
