Oxbow Meadows

Schematic Plan - Draft 1

Site History:

Oxbow Meadows is the former Nike Missile Site – Battery #73 – consisting of approximately 13.65 acres with 0.49 acres located in Lincoln, MA and approximately 13.16 acres in Wayland, MA that was deemed excess real property by the General Services Administration (GSA) in 2003. 

In June, 2003, the Board of Selectmen appointed the Nike Site Advisory Committee (NSAC) to research the site and the Town’s interests.   In February 2004, the NSAC recommended to the Board of Selectmen that the Town acquire up to 3.5 acres of the site for affordable housing and the remainder of the property for active and passive recreation.

At the Town of Wayland Special Town Meeting held on May 5, 2004, the Town of Wayland approved by a 2/3 majority to purchase approximately 2.75 acres (Lot 2A) of the property for the construction of up to sixteen units of housing, with a priority given to the development of affordable housing.  In addition, the approved article allowed the town to acquire the 10.71 acre portion (Lot 1A) of the property for passive and active recreation purposes through the Federal Lands to Parks program.   At the same Town Meeting, $200,000 of Community Preservation Act (CPA) funds were appropriated for the demolition of the existing structures including removal of asbestos and lead paint materials on both lots.
