Planning Board Hears Proposal for Solar Farm at Fruit Street

By Courtney Taylor, Master Control

The Planning Board and the Sustainable Green Committee met on Monday, September 10 to discuss the possibility of installing above-ground solar panels on the Fruit Street property. The panels would span across 23 acres, including some of the land set aside for low-income housing and market-rate or senior housing. There would be a need for a 20-year land commitment by the town, after which the contract can be renewed in which the panels would stay, or ended and the panels taken down.
