Pheasant Hill Neighborhood Hosting Meeting on Future of Eastleigh Farm

FRAMINGHAM – The Pheasant Hill neighborhood is holding a meeting Sunday, February 25 to discuss the future of Eastleigh Farm.

Earlier this week, the owner of the farm announced he has three offers to develop the farm.

At a City Council subcommittee meeting on Wednesday afternoon, Eastleigh Farm owner Doug Stephan told the planning & zoning subcommittee, the City of Framingham has 180 days to implement  TDR to help save the farm from development.

The Mayor’s office issued a statement Friday afternoon.

“Mayor Yvonne M. Spicer is in the process of reviewing transfer of development rights and exploring all of the options for land use and preservation of open space in Framingham,” said her spokesperson.

Pheasant Hill homeowners Scott and Tiel Wadland are hosting Sunday’s meeting from 3 to 5 p.m. at 70 Lanewood Avenue.

The Wadlands scheduled the meeting, as Stephan is interested in purchasing land on Angelica Drive, in the Pheasant Hill neighborhood, to give Eastleigh Farm another access point, if it is ever developed.

“Join your neighbors to talk about this, discuss the potential impacts and find out ways to get involved and make a difference that will affect the quality of life in Pheasant Hill,” said Wadland.

The meeting’s focus is on the effect the development of the farm could have on Pheasant Hill, but all residents of the City are invited.

The Farm is located in District 3, which is represented by City Councilor Adam Steiner. Scott Wadland is an elected School Committee member for District 3.
