Scituate voters went to the polls on Tuesday evening and voted to approve a $1.7 million bond to build a new police station in the town.
The measure passed by a margin of 1269 in favor to 917 opposed–a 352 vote difference.
The referendum became a contentious issue in the town over the last few months, as detailed by RI Relevant’s James Safford recently. (link below)
The new station will be built on what’s known as the Chopmist Hill Inn property on Chopmist Hill Road.
The town acquired the land in 2002 through it’s public land trust. It later built a senior center on the 40-acre property. STORY DEVELOPING
