In 2017, Ashland residents voted during the Special Town Meeting to purchase the Cadilac Paint Property to remove the buildings and finish the remediation of the site.
In March 2018, demolition began to remove contaminants and replace them with clean soil.
As of June 2022, the property is in the process of being surveyed. With the intention to then create plans to convert this property into a public park.
Thanks to the many boards and committees that worked on this but special thanks to Ed Hart for his persistent advocacy for this project. Also to the Select Board for being supportive of our efforts over the past few years.
