Letter to the Editor


Please come out and support Lachat Town Farm this Saturday!

The Friends of Lachat (FOL), which has long supported the Farm and its popular activities, is pleased to announce that FOL and the Town of Weston have reached a settlement agreement with the Farm’s neighbors which will allow us to continue the Farm’s vibrant and popular Town Farm programming and to build a new educational center on the property.

On Saturday, November 6 at 1 pm at the Weston High School football stadium, the Town will hold a Town Meeting to vote on the agreement. We urge all Weston voters to come and support the Farm!

The agreement addresses neighbors’ concerns about the frequency of large events, the volume of amplified music, traffic management, and the size and capacity of the new building, while at the same time allowing the continuation of all of the activities that the Farm has been offering.

FOL Board members voted unanimously recently to accept the terms of the agreement, reached after nearly nine months of discussions and negotiations, and the FOL Board recommends that voters approve the agreement as well.

Attached is the presentation that Friends of Lachat prepared for a recent Board of Selectmen’s meeting which includes Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) about the Settlement Agreement as well as a copy of the Settlement Agreement.

I look forward to seeing you Saturday. Be sure to bring proof of residence. Note: the raindate is Sunday at 1 pm.


Carol Baldwin
President, Friends of Lachat
