New building

The town held a public hearing last week on a proposal by Crop Production Services to build a 12,000-square-foot warehouse and retail space in a small industrial park on Marion Drive. The company, a nationwide supplier of fertilizers and pesticides to commercial farmers, wants to build a large building to better serve its customers, such as the town’s cranberry growers. Crop Production Services currently operates from a quonset hut-type of building on Plymouth Street in North Carver near the town of Plymouth line. Town Planner Jack Hunter said the proposal appears to be “a great project for the town.”
