Boards line up hearings on sports fields

The town’s Conservation Commission has scheduled a hearing on plans to install two lighted, artificial-turf sports fields as part of a new athletic complex at Caryl Park for 7:30 p.m. April 24 in the Town House. A Planning Board hearing on the plans for the fields, which would be on Dedham Street, a designated scenic road, is slated for 8 p.m. April 29. The town’s Parks and Recreation Commission has proposed the complex as a privately funded project that would include the two turf fields, a practice field, access road, and parking lot; supporters say the facility is required to accommodate the community’s growing youth sports programs. Some neighbors of the property and other residents have opposed the plans, saying Caryl Park is not the best location for artificial-turf fields, and citing environmental concerns over wetlands areas on the property.
