TELL US: Should 12 North Main Street Be Torn Down?
The subject was a topic of discussion at last week's Board of Selectmen meeting, and may potentially continue to be a topic of discussion at future meetings. Should this Graniteville landmark be razed or saved?
Anybody heading into Graniteville or driving from Forge Village to Groton Road has seen it at some point: the once proud Westford Anodizing Plant at 12 North Main St., now slowly decaying into complete collapse.
Several town employees testified to the Selectmen last week that if nothing was done the building would eventually collapse, and that the town should contact the owner of the property to address the issue for the sake of public safety.
We've attached documents from Westford building commissioner Matt Hakala presented at the meeting as well as pictures of the building taken recently.
Westford Patch will present updates as they become available, but in the meantime we have a question for all of you: it is likely that something will need to be done to this property, but what do you think should be done?
Should it be rebuilt as an industrial property? Or perhaps refurbished and turned into apartments like the Abbot Mill? Or, should everything there just be razed? If so, what then?
Tell us your thoughts in the comments.
