Where controversy and strife once thrived, a new cleanup plan for the former Medfield State Hospital site along the Charles River has emerged, as state and town officials may soon agree on a common vision of how to turn wasteland into wetlands.
On June 18, state and town officials will present a new conceptual plan to the Medfield Board of Selectmen, outlining cleanup efforts that could cost the state an estimated $8 million to $8.5 million. Selectmen will vote on the proposed project, which could take 18 months, with completion potentially in 2015.
The new plan was first presented to the public June 6.
