At the Town’s Special Election on Tuesday June 9, the voters approved Question 1 (funding for flood mitigation and environmental remediation) with 1716 votes in favor and 914 against, and did not approve Question 2 (funding for synthetic turf multi-sport field), with 1157 votes in favor and 1473 votes against. Detailed election results by precinct can be viewed HERE.
Town Management will now proceed with the Town’s consultants in the design and permitting work necessary to perform the flood mitigation and environmental remediation work, all in time to successfully coordinate with the WHS reconstruction project. (Town Meeting has already approved the necessary appropriation to spend the funds.) Further information about the course of those projects will be presented at meetings of the Board of Selectmen and on the Town’s web site, winchester.us.
Thanks to all who voted, and to all residents who visited this web site to inform themselves about the questions presented at the special election.
