The Wellesley Historical Commission (WHC) is holding three public forums over the coming weeks to discuss the high number of teardowns in town. The public’s feedback on a proposed historic preservation demolition review bylaw will be sought.
Wellesley is surrounded by communities with such bylaws, and as a result, Wellesley is targeted even more by those tearing down historic homes. About three-quarters of residents surveyed late last year said they are concerned about the number of teardowns in town.
The public forums will be held from 7:30 to 9pm on:
• Thursday, 9/22 at the Warren Building, Room 008, 90 Washington Street
• Monday, 9/26 in the Great Hall at Wellesley Town Hall
• Tuesday, 9/27 at the Warren Building, Room 008, 90 Washington Street
