GRAFTON, MA-The town’s board of selectmen is considering the purchase of a 184-acre parcel located between Keith Road and Salisbury Street. The site’s designation as agricultural land means that the town has first rights of refusal on the property.

Dr. Roger Robinson is the site’s current owner and he would sell the land to the town for $2.1 million. A town official tells GlobeSt.com that the possible acquisition is “still in discussion,” which, she emphasizes, “does not mean that we are not going to take it.”
