A public hearing on parking changes will be held as part of the Board of Selectmen’s meeting scheduled for Monday, October 17. Proposed parking restrictions for Putnam Court will be discussed in addition to reviews of the parking changes enacted over the summer.


The Affordable Housing Trust will hold its second meeting at 7pm on Tuesday, October 18 at Town Hall.


The Master Plan Committee (MPC) thanks the 549 residents who participated in the community survey during the month of September; a final report will be issued by the end of October. The MPC completed feedback sessions with the School and Finance Committees as well as the Board of Selectmen, and plans to meet with additional boards, committees and the public before finalizing its draft Vision Plan in December. The Vision Plan will serve as the foundation for Master Plan goals and recommendations which will be drafted over the winter. The MPC continues to facilitate and advance community discussions throughout the Master Planning process, including neighborhood meetings to share information and obtain feedback. Residents in the Raymond Street area will gather October 25 with several members of the MPC. If you have neighbors (or a group of more dispersed friends) who would like to hear about the Master Plan work and provide feedback, please email Sue Brown or call 978-525-6436. Please visit the MPC website for more information. 

Despite recent rain, the town-wide water ban remains in effect. Please conserve water and honor the outdoor watering ban. No washing of cars, driveways or sidewalk. Hand-watering of plants and yards between 5pm and 8am ONLY.

By order of the Fire Chief, all open burning is prohibited. No campfires, open flame cooking fires or recreational fires. This includes all town beaches and is due to the unusually dry weather and dry fuel conditions. The use of charcoal cooking fires and gas cooking fires is permitted.


Trash, recycling and kitchen compost are collected weekly on appointed collection days. Please have bins at the curb no later than 7am.
