Complete Streets Demonstration Setup. After some discussion it was decided that the setup will take place on Thursday, June 22 starting at 1 pm. The project will take 3 to 4 hours. Any Board member who can, please meet at Jakes at 1 pm. Some Board members are coming later around 3 pm to finish up. Please try to persuade a friend or family member to volunteer at one of these times. The more the merrier. SWRPC will supply the materials.
Commonwealth Construction. Ms. Mayberry said that the North Walpole commissioners were concerned that there was more building going on at Commonwealth Construction LLC in North Walpole than the site plan called for. The secretary retrieved the file from June 2015. After looking at the map and drawings, it was decided that the construction was sticking to the original 60-foot-by-105-foot plan proposed for the new building.
There being no other business, Mr. Aldrich made a motion to adjourn the meeting. The motion was seconded and approved by the rest of the Board.
