Attendees of a Special Town Meeting in Medfield Monday voted in favor of the town purchasing parcels of the Medfield State Hospital land

All three articles passed Monday night with near unanimous support, according to MSH Vision, which added that the next process will be a vote in the special election on March 31. 

"Registered voters must take this second step and cast a vote to complete this process of purchasing the Medfield State Hospital parcels," Medfield Patch blogger Colleen Sullivan wrote in a post Tuesday.

Medfield Town Moderator Scott F. McDermott issued a thanks to attendees of the Special Town Meeting on the Medfield02052 Blog Tuesday: 

"A special thanks to everyone for your coordination, support, and excellent efforts relative to the orchestration of last evening’s Special Town Meeting. It is an honor to stand-up before 1000+ friends and neighbors knowing that so many people contributed to the preparations and execution of the meeting—and all with a positive and upbeat approach."
