After months of hearings and more than four hours of discussion, the Wellesley Town Meeting voted last night to install artificial fields near Sprague Elementary School.
But the proposal won 133 of the 206 votes cast, falling short of the necessary two-thirds to gain Town Meeting approval. Some residents said still had reservations about health hazards, like scraped arms and legs.
The turf idea will probably go back for another vote at Town Meeting again tonight. So may another proposal to hold off on the turf until there is more study of safety concerns.
