Medford’s Office of Community Development (OCD) regularly asks the Historical Commission for Site Review comments on redevelopment plans throughout the City of Medford. The OCD has, recently, asked us for feedback on the plans (available here) for the Lawrence Memorial Hospital site, on Lawrence Road and Governor’s Ave.
The OCD also asks for comments from the Fire Department, the Department of Public Works and the City Engineer, the Building Commissioner, the Conservation Commission, the Office of Energy and Environment, and the Superintendent of Public Schools.
Plans are available at City Hall Office of Community Development, where the public can review them and submit comments as well.
At our September public meeting, the Medford Historical Commission received an application to demolish the buildings at 96-102 Winchester St, in South Medford near Ball Square.
The Commission will post additional information to this page as review of this demolition proceeds.
The owner has already applied to demolish 104 Winchester (pictured above) and a demolition delay of 18 months has been imposed on that property, to give the applicant time to consider renovation, reuse, relocation and other alternatives to demolition.
The Agenda for our next meeting, Mon Sept 9 at 7 PM is now available here. We have been asked to comment on plans for the Lawrence Memorial Hospital site. Although we have not seen full plans yet, discussion is on the September agenda, and the plans should be available to share with the public at our September meeting.
