This Day In Norwood History-June 30

RESIDENTS VOTE TO BUY NORWOOD CIVIC PROPERTY


NORWOOD, June 30, 1930—At a special town meeting held in the Junior High School tonight, at which less than 100 citizens were present out of a total voting strength of more than 6000. It was voted to purchase the Norwood Civic Association property, recently destroyed by fire.

George F. Willett, who originally gave the property to the town, proposed that $75,000 be appropriated to make the purchase. The voters, however, supported the recommendation of the Finance Commission that $53,-000 be appropriated. The vote was 68 in favor and four against.
