Dam Removal Considered in Weston
There will be a public information meeting in Weston to discuss the removal of the lower dam and stream restoration of Cold Spring Brook. The Cold Spring Brook Memorial Park is enjoyed by residents and visitors for fishing, picnics, quiet contemplation and even weddings. In 2011, tropical storm Irene created a safety hazard by breaching the lower dam and altering the stream flow. Two years ago, a task force was formed to explore possible solutions. Members of the Weston Conservation Commission, the Weston Community Association and landscape professionals have been working with Dubois and King Engineers and representatives from State and Federal Agencies to design a workable solution that will again afford the public a safe and accessible community space for recreation and scenic enjoyment. That solution is now at hand and ready for implementation. At Town Meeting on March 5, Weston voters will be asked to consider an appropriation toward this project. An informational meeting for the public will be held at 5 p.m. on Tuesday, February 12 at the Weston Playhouse. Refreshments will be available.
