It’s been a while since I’ve provided an update, but that doesn’t mean there hasn’t been a lot going on with the project. Since my last entry, we’ve made significant progress in moving the project forward with a couple of major steps completed. 1) Winchester-based Waterfield Design Group was selected as the design firm for the site and WSC is extremely excited to be working with Craig Miller and his firm. Waterfield has already been on-site flagging the wetland boundaries, and defining the actual build-able area of the two properties. We are hoping to see some initial designs from Craig in the next week or two and will post those on the website. 2) Our fundraising campaign kicked off with a mailing sent to just about everyone in Winchester as well as potential donors in other towns. The early response has been terrific and every day there are new donations in the PO Box! Watch for announcements regarding progress to date, and also with regard to significant contributions to the project. 3) Meetings with the Town Planner and Building Department continue and we expect to have final resolution of the re-zoning/special permitting question very soon.
Stay tuned for more updates very soon!
