Veterans housing proposed for closed day care site


The town’s housing authority has proposed building four to six handicapped-accessible apartments for veterans at Lake View Manor, according to executive director Michael Flaherty. The plan calls for razing a closed day care center in the complex and replacing it with veterans housing, he said. Town Council voted in June to contribute $220,000 in Community Preservation Act money toward the project, which will cost between $500,000 and $600,000, Flaherty said. “We are in the early stages of putting this package together,” he said. “My next stop is the state Department of Housing and Community Development” to request money.
