Hanson: Public hearing tonight to discuss the future of the old Plymouth County Hospital site
By David Skill
The future of the old Plymouth County Hospital property in Hanson will be the subject of a public hearing tonight at the Hanson Selectmen’s meeting.
The board will hear a presentation from the Old Colony Planning Council regarding potential uses of the former hospital site.
Hanson residents are urged to attend the meeting which is being held in the library of Whitman-Hanson Regional High School.
In response to a request by Hanson Town Administrator Ron San Angelo, The Old Colony Planning Council has prepared their Draft report of Prospective Reuses of the Former Plymouth County Hospital Site.
The request has also gotten the support of the Massachusetts Department of Housing and Community Development.
The report describes the site and its buildings, reviews its recent history and summarizes 12 past studies.
It also comments on ‘Conceptual Potential Uses” for the property.
Following the meeting, public input will be added to the draft report and a final report will be given to the Town of Hanson.
Tonight’s meeting begins at 7:00.
