Good morning, Hopkinton! Welcome to the daily update we call Hopkinton Today — a quick recap of yesterday’s news, highlights of what’s on tap, and a video or two to brighten your morning.
Culminating a busy few days for the Hopkinton Fire Department, firefighters put out a three-alarm blaze at 106 Saddle Hill Road late Wednesday night. Earlier in the day, HFD responded to a brush fire for the seventh time in just over a week. This has raised concerns about the town’s water supply.
The Parks & Recreation Commission welcomed newly elected commissioner Amy O’Donnell to the team at its meeting Wednesday and discussed projects that are gaining momentum, including the dog park and the EMC skate park.
The town announced Thursday morning that it has signed a 99-year lease with the 26.2 Foundation that grants the nonprofit a 19-acre site on East Main Street for the development and construction of an International Marathon Center.
Town meetings today include the Select Board (noon).
