Sports Fans: This Wednesday, 7 pm: Meeting on New Athletic Center
Marathon Sports Group
Excitement is building in Wellesley for a major new sports center at 900 Worcester Street (on the former site of St. James the Great church). The Town’s 900 Worcester Street Committee is considering plans for this large-scale facility, which will serve our community for at least the next 20 to 50 years.
The committee meets again this Wednesday, May 25, at 7 pm at the Warren Building. Please attend, ask questions, and show support for a green building design with net zero energy use, and green construction. Click HERE to see a great example from Falmouth.
We want to make sure that this facility does not have a negative impact on the town-wide goal to reduce our carbon footprint by 25 percent below 2007 levels by 2020.
Together, we can make this facility a model for our community and others by using state-of-the-art sustainable construction, design, lighting, and landscaping. We look forward to an impressive new facility that will have a positive impact on health and wellness, without a negative impact on our environment.
Wellesley is already struggling to achieve our carbon reduction goal, and it is vital that we make sure this facility does not push that goal out of reach.
