NORTH CARVER PROJECT LOCATION
The North Carver Project is located in the northwest corner of Carver, behind the Silo Marketplace (Aubuchon Hardware.) The 301-acre site is bounded by the Town of Plympton on the north, the Town of Middleborough on the west, Rt. 44 to the south, and Rt. 58 and Montello St. to the east.
This designated “brownfield” site has been identified by the Town as blighted and underutilized and has been designated by the Town as a preferred site for revitalization and economic development. The site includes a depleted sand and gravel operation and has historically been used as a stump dump, wood waste landfill, septage disposal area and a depository of debris removed from Boston’s
“Big Dig” project.
A MEPA (Massachusetts Environmental Policy Act) review determined that this 301-acre site is suitable for 1.8 million square feet of enclosed space, based on many factors including space, environment, traffic, and infrastructure. This proposal (and any other) must be designed to make the most beneficial use of the allowable space to the Town.
