This spring the Town of Marblehead contracted with the Conway Graduate School of Landscape Architecture to have a team of students study the Lead Mills conservation area and come up with suggestions as to how the property might be developed and used. In May and again in June the student team gave presentations at public meetings. The first of these meetings was to state their charge and to gather public thoughts and ideas. In the second session the student team gave a professional presentation of their preliminary ideas based on their findings, including a number of limitations. They offered three different concepts for use and, again, invited public opinion. A final report will be delivered to Becky Cutting, Marblehead’s Town Planner, by the end of June. We will give our readers a summary once that report has been accepted. Stay tuned. . .
