For Immediate Release

Old English Square Project Now at Residents' Fingertips

Holbrook, Massachusetts (April 2, 2003) - An updated interactive and informational Website www.oldenglishsquare.com is now accessible for Holbrook residents and community organizations to learn about a mixed-use retail, commercial and residential development proposed for the former Wright/English farm on Union Street. Dubbed Old English Square, the Project, first announced last year, will provide Holbrook with a new shopping and residential village that will revitalize the downtown area and generate a significant amount of new growth revenue for the Town.

The Website was created to provide the community with immediate and updated information on the project. It will include an area for residents to communicate with project organizers; will be refreshed regularly and will be live 24/7 to provide all the necessary project information. This completely interactive site will provide residents and others an opportunity to familiarize themselves with the project and will feature an e-mail address option that allows users to ask questions or submit comments about the proposed project and in turn receive responses back from the development team at info@oldenglishsquare.com.

Once logged on, users will find considerable information that will include up-to-date news and relevant news articles, a schedule of meetings, press releases announcing project milestones, site plans, a fiscal impact analysis including information on economic growth and schools, traffic analysis and a complete overview of the project.

According to Michael Mullins, Director of Development of the Joseph R. Mullins Company, the Project's developer, the most valuable aspect of the Website is that it gives the community a means to both stay informed and make their voices heard. "This Website is a comprehensive source of information about the project. This easily accessible information will encourage discussion," said Mr. Mullins. "The resulting dialogue and input will help us create the best possible project for Holbrook. Our goal is to keep the public informed throughout the development process."

The proposed project features a pedestrian-friendly retail village and residential community. The retail village would include 4 to 6 shops such as movie rental stores, dry cleaners, restaurants and coffee shops, as well as 5 to 6 small businesses including law or doctors' offices.

Overall, the project would offer 343 one and two-bedroom residential units and approximately 36,000 square feet retail and commercial space. On May 19, Holbrook Town Meeting Members will vote on a critical zoning change that will allow this project to move forward. Holbrook residents, business owners and other interested parties are encouraged to view www.oldenglishsquare.com to learn more about this important project and to offer feedback.
