This Day in Norwood History-January 22, 1948-To Bring In Plans For New Town Yard
Town Engineer Albert W. Thompson will bring all plans and specifications for a new town yard to the meeting of the Board of Selectmen next Tuesday evening In order that the long-discussed project may -be considered at the budget meeting and brought before the voters at the annual town meeting in March.
The motion for action on the town yard was offered at Tuesday night’s meeting of the Board of Selectmen by Walter J. Dempsey and was unanimously voted.
The town yard considered some time ago included a purchase of land from Winslow Brothers and Smith with an entrance from Central Street. The estimated cost by a local engineering concern was approximately $150,000, a1 figure which may have been upped considerably recently.
It was recently stated that the present property in the rear of the Norwood Lumber Company purchased from George F. Willett was inadequate as it is accessible only on a very narrow road.
