The gift that never goes out of style

Posted by Ralph Ranalli July 9, 2007 11:32 AM


The town has accepted a land gift of 24 acres from a developer building a 300 unit complex near the Commuter Rail station on Smith Valve Parkway.

The Board of Selectmen last month voted unanimously to accept the deed for 24 acres from developer Francis Zarette of Shrewsbury, town officials said. The land on Main Street will be jointly managed by the Westborough Community Land Trust and the Conservation Commission.

Zarette's project, dubbed Westboro Village, has received town approvals, but has not yet been built. Located on the site of a former gravel pit along Gleason Street, it will be a combination of shops, office space, single family homes, townhouses, and condominiums.
