The following is taken from the personal blog of selectman Osler "Pete" Peterson called Medfield02052.

I had noticed as I jogged that the Mobil station pumps have had their hoses removed and the station looks closed (and ratty), so I asked at our meeting of the Board of Selectmen last Tuesday whether the town should be looking whether to take some action. Kristine Trierweiler responded that the developer who has been pursuing the Starbucks at that location had in fact recently been in contact with her, that he is still going forward with the Starbucks, that he is making progress, and that he is planning on an opening next fall. Kristine Trierweiler indicated that she is looking to get the town’s pocket park built on the town owned land between the Mobil station and Zebra’s as part of the development of the Starbucks.
Nice to know that prominent downtown site will get back into productive use – I just wish it would happen sooner.
