1. Officials to Tour Stoughton's Train Station
The following is a press release from the office of Senator Brian A. Joyce (D-Milton):
Senator Brian A. Joyce along with State Representatives William Galvin and Lou Kafka, Stoughton town officials and MBTA management are inviting community members to join them on Monday, July 16 at 3:30 p.m. at the Stoughton Train Station located at 45 Wyman St. in Stoughton to participate in a walkthrough of the historic Stoughton Train Station which the MBTA has recently decided to sell for reuse.
Town officials have indicated their desire to see an adaptive reuse of the property that assists with their efforts to revitalize the downtown.
At Senator Joyce’s request, T officials agreed to halt their plans to sell the property so that town officials could tour the building and decide on a course of action that is in the town’s best interests.
The walkthrough will be followed by an informal meeting on the third floor of the Town Hall at 5 p.m.
