Another reason the North 40 is an ideal location for a CCRC is its close proximity for residents to downtown shopping, town hall activity, the Tolles Parsons Center, the Wellesley Free Library, and Wellesley College. And for walkers and those who enjoy nature, there is ready access to the town's trails and Morse's Pond. Financially, the proposed project would be long-term leased from the town with the lease payments potentially covering Wellesley's in- terest cost in financing its $35 million invest- ment for the purchase of the property from Wellesley College. The project would be or- ganized as a private nonprofit corporation, independent of town government, though subject to various approval rights the town might require. In summary: n THERE'S MAJOR GROWTH potential here worth the investment of time, energy, and dollars needed. n THE PROJECT WILL BENEFIT the residents and town and the developer/operator. n WITH ALL THE services Wellesley now pro- vides its seniors, there's still a missing gap: the idea of a home where the seniors of Wellesley and abutting towns can live and age gracefully. n THE TOWN HAS ready demand. n WELLESLEY HAS a strong body of capable volunteer citizens to build the strong core group needed for pulling together the popu- lar support needed to make a project of this magnitude happen. 54 W e l l e s l e y W e s t o n M a g a z i n e | s u m m e r 2 0 1 8 op-ed issues speak up [ forum ]
