ABOUT THE COUNCIL ON AGING

The Council on Aging’s mission is to foster an atmosphere of wellness during the aging process among Medfield's senior population. We address the emotional, social, physical and often spiritual needs of older individuals and their families. Our goal is to enhance our member’s quality of life and promote independence through our varied programs, active social events, wide services and confidential referrals.  Visit us at The Center or call us to learn more about how we can meet the needs of our elder community members during their life journey.

Special Town Meeting, November 18 at 7:00 P.M

 

A Special Town Meeting is scheduled for Monday, November 18th starting at 7 PM in the High School Gymnasium. The primary purpose of this Special Town Meeting is to request taxpayer approval of proposed zoning changes required to enable the town to move forward in the process of redeveloping the State Hospital property along the lines of what is described in the Medfield State Hospital Master Plan. The proposed zoning changes must be passed by a 2/3 majority. If the proposed zoning changes pass at the Special Town Meeting, the town will then move ahead and request proposals from prospective developers for the redevelopment of the property. Before any contract is signed with a developer, however, taxpayers will have another chance to approve the specific redevelopment proposal that has been selected for the property through a land disposition vote at a future town meeting.


Medfield State Hospital Master Planning Committee  (MSHMPC) Presents!


For many years you have heard about Medfield State Hospital.  The town is at a point where the proposal from the MSHMPC can begin to move forward.  At the Special Town Meeting, you will be asked to vote on a zoning change that will allow the town to begin the process of turning this beautiful piece of land into something special.  This is the first step.  Please join Randy Karg and Lucille Fisher at the Center on Wednesday, November 6 at 1:00 p.m. for information on the zoning change and answer any questions or concerns you might have.   Be informed and attend the Special Town Meeting on November 18. Transportation is available by calling the Center.

Saturday Hours at the Center

The Center at Medfield has grown tremendously over the last ten years. As home to the Medfield Council on Aging, the Center’s presence has evolved into an active and vibrant community, offering over 900 seniors an extensive and broad range of activities, resources and events. A grant was submitted to MetroWest Health Foundation in October 2017 for funding to open our doors on Saturdays. And it was approved! Plan to visit the Center for programming each Saturday from 10:00 a.m.— 3:00 p.m.
