WLT Successfully Advocates for Waltham to Buy Field Station Property

The city council approved Mayor Jeannette McCarthy's agreement to buy the southern portion of the UMass Field Station on Beaver Street, Monday for $17.4 million.

Last year the council voted to use $14 million in Community Preservation Act (CPA) funding to buy the property, and then this week approved an additional $3.4 million to buy 28 acres of the 58 acre property that is home to some seven tenants.
