The Wellesley Natural Resources Commission has scheduled a public hearing on the School Committee’s Hunnewell track and field lighting proposal at its Thursday, Feb. 17 meeting, which kicks off at 6:30pm.
The lights discussion is slated for 6:40pm, and two hours have been set aside to accommodate what could be a lot of public feedback based on the resident interaction we’ve seen at past NRC and other town meetings.
Whether or not to install lights at the Wellesley High School track & field has been a long-running discussion in town, with those in favor arguing it would be a great community-builder and support student-athletes, and those against concerned about the negative impact on wildlife and neighbors.
Christopher Spagnuolo says
Seems like short notice for such an important topic? I encourage everyone in support for adding lights to the field to call in, write in and speak up. For over 10 years this has been delayed, its time for the project to be approved and move forward. We could use accessible bathrooms as well, this is embarrassing to say the least.
