Update - March 30, 2022
On March 22, 20222, the Board of Selectmen voted to name an affiliate of Trinity Financial as the designated developer of the Medfield State Hospital and enter into a Provisional Designation Agreement with Trinity. This designation, which is provisional, kicks off a period of additional due diligence for both parties ahead of a Special Town Meeting in June 2022, when voters will consider whether to approve a proposed sale of portions of the hospital campus.
During this period of due diligence, Trinity will have access to the Medfield State Hospital buildings and grounds for continued evaluation of existing conditions, to conduct environmental assessments and other studies, and to further develop its proposal for the campus. Trinity's consultants have been onsite everyday since March 29, 2022 conducting due diligence inside the existing buildings. They expect to be onsite through April 15.
Simultaneously, the Medfield State Hospital Development Committee will initiate its next phase of evaluation of the proposal, including an updated analysis of impacts and benefits to the Medfield community. Trinity’s proposal is intended to fund all of the project’s infrastructure costs as part of the construction and according to Trinity’s projections is expected to generate over $700,000 per year in net tax revenues to the Town once complete.
