Ashland Town Meeting Changes Use of Chestnut Street Property

ASHLAND – During the Special Town Meeting on Wednesday night, November 20, the Town of Ashland voted unanimously to change the use of 433 Chestnut Street.

The address is currently general municipal use. It will be changed to the purpose of conveyance and/or transfer.

According to Ashland Town Manager Michael Herbert, a purchaser has been chosen for this property and plans to rehabilitate the house.

There was concern over whether the house’s lack of recognition as a historic property on a state or national level would impact the historical restrictions placed upon it by the town.

“I think it’s really important that we go for whatever status we can get for this property, but the historical deed restriction will be put in place, will be put on this property regardless of whether it achieves national register or state historic listing,” Herbert said.
