Stow and Hudson, Mass.

Big changes coming for the Lake area:

The Collings Foundation has requested a permit from the Stow Board of Selectmen to remove the hill at the South end of their landing strip off of Barton Road. While this is an enormous project, expected to take three years to complete, no Stow roads will be affected. The hearing (perhaps others to follow) was held on April 22; a copy of the application can be read here (to enlarge that page, right click and use marquee zoom).

In other Collings Foundation news, a portion of one of the nation's most extensive historic military vehicle collections is coming to Stow. Work has already begun off of Barton Road for a new building to house the collection. Read about it here.
