Bond Authorization for Demoliton of Vacant Buildings at UMass Lowell West Campus

Posted on July 31, 2014 at 10:36 AM by Paul Cohen

The Massachusetts State Legislature has included $1.6M in the Capital Bond Bill for the demolition of the vacant buildings that are located at the UMass Lowell West Campus.  The Town of Chelmsford requested this action as a public safety measure to protect the neighbors who abut this Princeton Street property from fire, vandalism, and other hazards.  Governor Patrick or the next Governor will decide whether to undertake this project once the State borrows moneys for its capital needs. Many projects are authorized by the State, but never occur due to budgetary constraints.
