MAYFIELD—The proposed Paul Nigra Center for Creative Arts and Transitions may have a home at the former Tetra Tech Construction property on Route 30 in the town,Lexington Center officials announced. The Lexington Foundation has signed a contract and intends to buy what Lexington officials say is 66 “picturesque acres.” The property, which includes a 32,000-square-foot building, used to be owned by Delaney Construction Corp. but was sold to Tetra Tech in 2007. Wally Hart, Lexington’s division director of business and
community development, said there is a purchase agreement, but the deal isn’t done yet. “We’re trying to get approval,” Hart said. “I cannot address any information about Tetra Tech or the price until we complete the purchase.” Lexington officials told county supervisors in June an arts center project could cost about $2.5 million. Tetra Tech corporate spokeswoman CharlieMacPherson
said today the company has no comment on the property sale at this time. “I know we’re exploring our options,” she said.
Nigra was the longtime executive director of Lexington Center.
