If approved by voters, the zoning amendments will help pave the way for 154 units of senior housing at the Sagamore Spring Golf Club. The 18-hole golf course will remain on the property. The rezoning includes changing the east side of the property from a residential to an elderly housing district, allowing a golf course as a permitted use in an elderly housing district, and increasing the maximum number of units allowed in an elderly housing district from 136 to 154, according to Ted Regnante, the local attorney representing the Residences at Sagamore Spring project. The project is being proposed by developer Richard Bonvie, president of Mashpee-based Bonvie Homes. Bonvie has been behind several high-end over 55 communities across the state, including the New England Country Club project in Bellingham. The planned residences will be attached two-bedroom townhomes ranging from 2,400 to 3,000 square feet, built in clusters of duplexes, triplexes, and quads, with expected listing prices from $700,000 to $900,000, according to Regnante. The Sagamore Spring Golf Course has been owned by the Luff and Strobel/Thompson families since 1929. Richard Luff, speaking on behalf of the landowners during the initial presentation to selectmen, said the proposed free event and open to the public.

Richard Tisei, owner of Northrup Associates, is working with Bonvie on the marketing of the community. Tisei said the community will provide much needed residences for adults 55 and over who want to remain in Lynnfield as they become empty nesters. Tisei, Bonvie, and Regnante have all noted that allowing senior housing will have less of an impact on the town than allowing single family residences, which would place a greater burden on the schools and other town services. design interpretations. Artists from the Lynnfield Art Guild, and art students from the Lynnfield High School and Lynnfield Middle School submit art selections, which are then interpreted through fresh floral designs by members of the Lynnfield Home & Garden Club and local professional floral designers.

The pairings of the art and floral arrangements will remain on display through April 13. The April 9 reception is free and open to the public.

MARCH 1, 2018 WEEKLYNEWS.NET - 978-532-5880 3 Town considers opioid class action suit SUIT From Page 1 Commonwealth of Massachusetts,” said Dolan. “Communities are coming together to file a class action suit against leading pharmaceutical companies that have provided opioid-based pharmaceuticals to residents of the commonwealth.” Last fall, Healey expanded an ongoing investigation in the marketing and sales of opioids to include multiple manufacturers of branded painkillers and three major drug distributors. As part of the 39-member bipartisan coalition of attorneys general, Healey was investigating whether drug manufacturers sought to increase profits by misrepresenting the dangers of prescription painkillers and ignoring the public health risks of spiking opioid sales. The companies being investigated by the attorney general include manufacturers Purdue Pharma, Endo, Janssen Teva, and Allergan and distributors Amerisource Bergen, Cardinal Health, and McKesson. “In my previous life (as mayor of Melrose) we had long discussions about joining this litigation,” said Dolan. “I will be meeting with town solicitor Tom Mullen as well as the town administrator of Wakefield, Steve Mayo, to discuss whether this will be in the interest of the citizens of Lynnfield and I will be able to provide the board with a more formal recommendation at its next meeting.” Last year, town officials took steps to address opioid and other addition issues with the formation of the Healthy Lynnfield coalition. The group consists of local educators, town officials, health professionals, and clergy working to address substance abuse issues. Last fall, the White House declared the opioid epidemic as a public health emergency. At the time, Healey noted that the declaration was made 3-½ years after an emergency was declared in Massachusetts and that the national emergency was woefully inadequate to address the challenges faced during Christina Troisi makes Dean’s List at Cornell University the epidemic. But on Tuesday, the U.S. Justice Department stated that it had filed a statement of interest in a case involving hundreds of lawsuits against opioid distributors and manufacturers, according to the Washington Post.
