Norfolk County Land

(November Special Town Meeting 2007 Article 4E)

After Norfolk County closed the former Norfolk County Hospital, Chapter 209 of the Acts of 1997 authorized the County to offer for sale the 4.5 acre parcel of land bounded by Washington Street, South Street, and county property in Braintree Highlands. The Town, having the right-of-first refusal, was able to purchase the property from Norfolk County to be used for open space/recreation or community housing.
