Norwell

Special election for new police station

Continue reading below

Residents at last week’s special Town Meeting voted in favor of a $5.2 million debt exclusion override to build a police station, and the spending request now goes to voters at a special election Saturday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Norwell Middle School. Town Meeting also approved all of the other spending items, most of which were transfers from the Community Preservation Fund reserve account. They included: nearly $2.9 million for installing two artificial turf fields and making other improvements to the high school athletic fields; $900,000 to build a pedestrian and bicycle pathway from the Middle School to Forest Street; $619,000 to purchase property at the end of Simon Hill Road that will connect to other town-owned land; $370,000 to purchase a 10-acre waterfront property that will give residents access to the North River; and $114,000 to move the historic Sergeant Samuel Stetson House to the entrance of the new town cemetery on Stetson Shrine Lane. However, voters rejected a zoning bylaw change that would have, among other things, increased the height of buildings in commercially zoned areas.
