Selectmen award contract for waterfront master plan


The Canton Board of Selectmen, in concert with Town Administrator Charlie Aspinwall, Parks and Recreation Director Liz Francis, and Conservation Agent Cynthia O’Connell, have chosen Kyle Zick Landscape Architecture (KZLA) Inc. of Boston to develop a master plan for the town-owned Earl Newhouse Waterfront Area at Reservoir Pond.

The contract is for $48,700, which is well within the $150,000 budget appropriated at the May town meeting for three Community Preservation projects. The other two projects include an update to the town’s Open Space and Recreation Plan and a comprehensive trails plan. The town recently signed a contract with Weston & Sampson for $78,200 to produce the Open Space and Recreation Plan update and the trails plan, leaving $96,800 for the Newhouse Waterfront plan.

The town received 10 bids for the Newhouse project and O’Donnell, in a letter to selectmen, said she contacted four references provided by KZLA and highly recommended the firm.

The firm hopes to begin work in late August with the goal of submitting a master plan to the three boards by mid March.
