The Board of Selectmen is considering calling a special town meeting to decide the fate of renovation plans for DeFazio and Memorial parks.

Board chairman Gerald Wasserman said the most difficult issue is whether the town will agree to pay roughly $1.5 million to move the running track at Memorial to DeFazio Park and to upgrade it from six lanes to eight.

The board has not yet decided when it will vote on whether to hold the special Town Meeting, which would probably take place sometime in March, officials said.
