BRAINTREE – It has stood empty and boarded up for the past three years at one of the town’s major gateways, but changes could be on the way for the former Motel 6 on Union Street, Mayor Charles Kokoros told the town council this week.
Kokoros said he spoke to the owners of the property Monday.
“They are working on putting a deal together,” he said.
The owners are aware of the town’s newly enacted Anti-Blight Ordinance, which provides for $300-per-day fines for commercial properties left with boarded-up windows. The town council approved the ordinance Nov. 3.
“It’s just an eyesore and not what we want Braintree to look like,” the mayor said of the former Motel 6.
