Wilmington: Push to buy farm, KO multi-family

WILMINGTON --- Wilmington will hold a special town meeting before its May 5 town meeting to vote on whether to exclude multi-family housing from its business and neighborhood mixed-use districts. Special town meeting will also vote on whether it should buy the 75-acre Sciarappa Farm to protect it from development. "Those two articles are going to determine the future of this town," said Selectmen Michael McCoy said. "Number one, in a nutshell, no more condos. People in town do not want to see more condos." McCoy led a citizen's petition to get the special TM in response to a town meeting article that would change the farm's zoning to mixed-use residential. Voters will consider that article as well.
