SPECIAL ELECTION ON JUNE 9

Winchester voters will cast votes on a debt exclusion override to provide funds for three Skillings Field projects.

There will be two questions:

Question 1 - Approval of amounts for 2 projects -- Aberjona River Flood Mitigation Project #6 (4th culvert) and environmental remediation of Skillings Field.  The combined cost of these two projects is approximately $11.45 million.  Note:  the dollar amount will not be stated on the ballot.

The above projects were approved by Town Meeting on April 27, 2015.

Question 2 - Approval of amounts for the design and construction of synthetic turf athletic fields consisting of a baseball diamond and multi-purpose field at Skillings Field.  The cost is projected to be $1.65 million.

The Town Meeting did Not approve funds for the synthetic turf project, but the Board of Selectmen decided to keep Question 2 on the ballot in the belief that Winchester voters should be given the opportunity to indicate their willingness to pay additional tax dollars for an upgrade of the field.  

For additional information on the background of these proposed projects, log onto Skillings Field Project.
