An effort to revive a proposal for artificial turf playing fields at Sprague Elementary failed at Wellesley Town Meeting last night.
Town Meeting member Jane Batista asked fellow members to reconsider the votes they had cast Monday, when the proposal had failed to garner the necessary two-thirds majority.
She said a letter from a former National Football League player that was read before Monday’s vote did not indicate that the player’s negative experience with artificial turf involved Astroturf and not the particular new generation of synthetic turf which Wellesley has been considering.
But the proposal to reconsider the artificial turf item, which also required a two-thirds majority, failed to pass on a 94-94 vote.
