January 27, 2012

NORTH SMITHFIELD – A coalition of non-profit and private developers broke ground Wednesday at Marshfield Commons, a 38-unit housing development that will enable the town to reach its state-mandated threshold for affordable housing.
Called “a model of rural smart growth,” the tract of townhouse style two- and three-bed units preserves three-quarters of its 6.3-acre Mechanic Street construction site as open space.
