Walsh Committee Seeks Input
The committee that is considering the use and development of the nearly 70-acre Walsh property is hoping to hear directly from Truro residents about their needs and wishes for the land.
On Thursday, Dec. 8 at 4:30 p.m., the Walsh Property Community Planning Committee will hold an open house at the Truro Central School. According to the town website, “This community visioning event will include hands-on activities, visual surveys, and other informational resources.”
Approximately 35.5 acres of the Walsh land will be preserved as open space. A 28.5-acre tract at the southwest corner that has been identified as developable is under discussion by the planning committee and the town’s consultants from Tighe & Bond.
Four recently proposed plans by Carole Ridley, Sharon Rooney, and Gordon Leedy of Tighe & Bond include options for the development of this area, including community housing, recreational facilities, and commercial sites.
Thursday’s open house is free, and people of all ages are encouraged to attend. Pizza, soft drinks, and age-appropriate activities will be provided at the event. —Sophie Mann-Shafir
