WESTBOROUGH – Proposals for a new home for Boston Lawnmower and for up to 40 single-family rental units came before the Select Board on Oct. 24.
Boston Lawnmower plans
Patrick McCarty presented plans for 0 Bridle Path at the corner of Oak Street for a new facility for Boston Lawnmower.
The business is currently leasing space at 233 Turnpike Road.
The facility will include 47 parking spaces, and the roof will be “EV ready,” said McCarty.

Once approvals from the town are set, he said it would take about nine months to complete.
“It’s great that he’s keeping the business in town,” said Select Board Chair Sean Keogh.
134 Fisher St.
Richard Record, who’s owned the property at 134 Fisher St. since 2001, wants to develop the three-acre site, which is close to the commuter rail station.
Initial plans call for 18, one-bedroom rental units, about 650 square feet each. An expansion would eventually add 22 more rental units, for a total of 40. Eight units would be deemed affordable.
The units would be partially electric.
The Select Board will send its comments for both projects to the Planning Board.
