The Fairhaven Selectboard has scheduled a public hearing for Tuesday, 6/21, to discuss the proposal to turn the old Oxford School building and property into a senior housing complex. The town intends to enter into a purchase and sale agreement with Stratford Capital Group to develop the project.
The board has also scheduled a special town meeting on June 30 to vote on the measure. SCG is paying for the STM.
The disposition of the building was scheduled to be voted on at the annual Town Meeting in May, but was passed over to give SCG time to create drawings showing how the proposed development will look from the street side and the Livesey Park side.
The proposal calls for 63 units, 46 one-bedrom and 17 two-bedroom, for a total of 80 bedrooms for tenants 62+ years of age.
The public is encouraged to attend the meeting. SCG representatives and town officials will be available to answer questions on the project.
The public hearing will be held on Tuesday, 6/21, at 7:00 p.m. at Town Hall, 40 Center Street, Fairhaven.
For more information, contact the Selectboard’s Office at 508-979-4023, Ext. 2.
The documents, including the draft purchase and sale agreement and renderings, are available on the town’s website at www.fairhaven-ma.gov. Click on “Documents and Contracts” on the left column, and then “Rogers-Oxford Documents.”
