Ashland Voters Say Yes To Purchasing Valentine Property

ASHLAND – Voters in the town of Ashland overwhelmingly said yes to purchasing the Valentine property on West Union Street.

The vote was 1,914 to 385 to purchase the 7.67-acre property via a debt exclusion Proposition 2 1/2 override.

Earlier this year, Ashland Selectmen authorized Town Manager Michael Herbert to purchase the 133 West Union Street property at a cost of $3.5 million.

Residents  were asked to authorize a $2.8 million debt exclusion override yesterday to help pay for the property. Some funding will come from a Community Preservation Act grant.

The Valentine property was one of three ballot questions voters saw today, May 15 when they went to the polls at Ashland High.
