For two consecutive Board of Selectmen’s meetings and a
number of the weeks, the Westford community has been talking about whether or
not the town should utilize the right of first refusal on 64 Main St., a 26-plus-acre
parcel of land near Town Hall, also known as the Agnew Property.
On May 13, the creation of a study group was proposed to look at a potential purchase. The meeting was continued until May 27, to look at the idea.
Potential buyers have agreed to purchase the land for $680,000, and have floated the idea of selling a portion of the land to the Conservation Commission.
According to online reports, the property is assessed at around $446,000, and has a Chapter 61B tax assessment attached to it. The town has 120 days to exercise an option to purchase the land.
