Melone Gravel Pit Property Reuse Planning

The Melone property is a 46.6 acre parcel located on Route 117, North Road, 16.4 acres of which are located in the Town of Concord. The Town purchased this property in 1992 and operated a gravel operation on the parcel throughout the 1990s. Estimates from the Department of Public Works indicate that nearly all the gravel has been removed from the parcel.

A Request for Proposals (RFP) for disposition of the land was issued in March 2018. The proposals received in response to the RFP were evaluated by the Board of Selectmen, and the Quarry North proposal was ranked as the most advantageous for the Town. Quarry North proposed a housing development which would replace the proposed Sudbury Station development. The proposal also provides the Town with the Sudbury Station land in Town Center, in addition to $1 million and other mitigation funds, which are under negotiation with the developer. A vote of Town Meeting is required for the disposition of the Melone property.

A Town Forum on the Melone Disposition was held on November 27, 2018.

A Town Meeting, which will include the Melone Disposition, will be held on December 11, 2018.

A Glossary of Terms & Acronyms has been developed to help navigate some of the technical language pertaining to the Melone disposition.
