Pine Hill Crossing’s first open house on Wednesday evening drew a stream of visitors, eager to see the newly renovated units that are now available for lease.

Family groups, seniors, singles, and young couples toured two of the three-bedroom houses. The “model” home (link to kitchen photo and other photos) has been completely refurbished and is in move-in condition. The new kitchen includes refrigerator, granite counter tops, microwave, and washer and dryer. The walls are painted a soft gray. Wood flooring covers the living room, with gray carpet in the bedrooms.

Liljegren Field: Part 2, Constructing a Wetland Replication Area

Liljegren Field: Part 2, Constructing a Wetland Replication Area

By Julie McCay Turner

An Order of Conditions issued by Bedford’s Conservation Commission required that the Liljegren Field project must replicate the wetlands lost during the construction of the new fields behind the high school. The site chosen was the already marshy area between Veterans Memorial Park and the back of Page Field.

MJ Cataldo of Littleton is the contractor for both the new fields and the wetland replication project; they installed the original baseball field behind the high school. That field is being realigned, and the area has increased to include the formerly wooded area along Liljegren Way, making way for the addition of a new multi-use field and amenities.
