A concept plan has been drafted by a committee in Brookfield about what to do with the 18-acre Gurski Homestead.  The Board of Selectmen heard a presentation at their meeting this week.  The farm was built in 1890.  The town was required to create a master plan for the property in 2015 after razing some dilapidated structures without permission.  The State Historic Preservation Office required preservation of some buildings.  The Newstimes reports that the two phase master plan includes rehabilitating buildings, walking paths, farmhouse renovations, creating a community garden and renting one of the houses.  Parking and athletic fields could also be added.
