Public comment

Most of the callers who called in during the Public Comment period expressed their concerns over the proposal for 440 Granite Ave.  The 440 Granite Ave. concept plan update is on the agenda and was covered at this meeting for the third discussion on the topic.

Reprecincting discussion/approval

Town Clerk, Susan Galvin joined to discuss the reprecincting proposal. The law in Massachusetts requires that legislative districts be redrawn on a periodic basis so that shifts in population will neither unfairly increase nor diminish a particular voter’s voice in government. According to the proposal, 5 precincts will be changed, with the affective date of Dec 31, 2021. The 5 precincts effected will be 3, 5, 6, 7 and 10, totaling 276 residents. The Select Board voted in favor of the proposal and it was submitted for approval on October 30.

426-440 Granite Ave development discussion/approval

Attorney Marion McEttrick, representing the developer, Oranmore Enterprises, joined to discuss the latest updates on the concept plan proposal for the development of 426-440 Granite Ave.. As of now, the Select Board is not in total support of the concept plan. They would like to reconvene after a meeting with the neighbors takes place and would like more time to review all the details to be taken into consideration.
