Letter: Get started on cleanup of Westwood property

Get started on cleanup of Westwood property

With the land swap involving Glen Oak, Audubon and Westwood now off the table, it’s time that all interested parties in the Town of Amherst get together to work out a solution that will ultimately lead to the cleanup of the former Westwood Country Club.

The site has been designated a brownfield, and cannot be developed into a park, or for any other purpose, for that matter, until it is remediated.

As the owner of property adjacent to Westwood, I strongly urge town leaders to immediately work with Mensch Capital to develop a solution that will benefit everyone and help to stabilize and increase neighborhood property values surrounding Westwood.
