On Wednesday night, the Board of Selectmen authorized the town to move forward with a plan to develop fields on the town-owned property at 55 Lawton Road. The plan would also accommodate a portion of the Farmington River Trail.
No funding has been announced but the move gives the town the go-ahead to bring the Parks and Recreation plan to the town's land-use boards for approval.
The project calls for a full-sized youth sports playing field, a smaller practice area with parking in the middle. At selectmen's request from a previous meeting, parking lot lighting and an irrigation system were added to the plan. The park would also facilitate a 1,200 linear-foot portion of the Farmington River trail.
