NORFOLK - Public officials and community members recently participated in the groundbreaking of the town's new environmentally-sensitive pocket community, Boyden's Crossing.
Located at 108 Main St., the new community is being touted as one of the first so-called pocket neighborhoods in the greater Boston area. The communities have been popular on the West Coast for the past decade and the movement is gravitating to the East Coast.
Among the public officials to lend a hand at the official groundbreaking and ribbon-cutting were Norfolk Building Commissioner Robert Bullock Jr., state Rep. Shawn Dooley, R-Norfolk, Selectman Scott Bugbee and state Sen, Richard Ross, R-Wrenthamn.
Also present were: Project Manager Scott LaMontagne; Realtor Danielle Rochefort with Berskshire Hathaway Page Realty, General Manager Stonebridge Homes Bisher Hashem, General Manager Stonebridge Homes Eoghan Kelley, Town Administrator Jack Hathaway and Town Planner Ray Goff.
Scheduled for occupancy next spring, Boyden's Crossing is within walking distance of Norfolk center, the Town Commons, Public Library and the commuter rail station to Boston.
Developers, in a news release, described the project as "a thoughtfully designed neighborhood of sustainable homes promoting a healthy, comfortable lifestyle and a strong sense of community. Its emphasis on environmental stewardship appeals to everyone from young professionals to empty nesters looking to reduce their carbon footprint while at the same time being part of a larger community."
The project is being financed by Mechanics Cooperative Bank.
