New Lynnfield housing development to be named for WWII veteran


LYNNFIELD, Mass. (AP) — A brand new nine-home subdivision below building in Lynnfield is being named for a city resident killed throughout World War II.

Charles Wesley Tuttle was a U.S. Army Air Corps gunner killed within the Pacific on Aug. 7, 1943, developer Brian Hannon informed The Daily Item of Lynn in an e-mail.

“We were approached early on in the project by the American Legion in Lynnfield about the prospect of naming the road for a Lynnfield veteran who was either killed in action or missing in action. Our team thought this was an excellent idea,” Hannon stated.

Hannon’s New Hampshire-based growth and property agency hopes to begin building at what’s being known as the Tuttle Lane growth in late spring or early summer time.

Site preparation work started in early February with erosion controls put in place and tree clearing. Work moved into March with demolition of the small houses already there.

Tuttle Lane underwent intensive Planning Board and Conservation Commission evaluate “running over many months,” stated city planning and conservation director Emilie Cademartori.
