ANDOVER, Mass. (AP) - The future of a closed 25-acre landfill in northeastern Massachusetts is clearer after about a dozen residents listened to town proposals.

The Eagle-Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1Fr8kuU) an engineer with Landon Environmental made three proposals.

He says one option would be to turn the landfill into a 6-acre material handling yard that would store various construction and supply materials.

Another option would be to combine the handling yard and recreational facility with two lighted sports fields and a soccer field.

The third proposal involved combining the storage site with a solar panel array, which he says would be the least-expensive option. He says solar panels are easily installed and would ultimately generate money for the town.

Andover Selectmen Chairwoman Mary O’Donoghue says another meeting will likely be held later this month.
