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 photo and video of the day.
According to recently released 2020 U.S. Census information, Hopkinton ranked as the 14th-wealthiest town in Massachusetts, with a median household income of $172,683. Hopkinton’s median income represented a 43.6 percent jump from the 2010 census, when it was $120,240, ranking 19th highest in Massachusetts.
The Main Street Corridor Project will continue over the next two weeks with the installation of electric manholes as well as Comcast and telephone manholes at the intersection of Hayden Rowe Street and Main Street, the town announced. Additionally, a fence will be set up along the north side of the Town Common, and the abutting Marathon Way will be closed throughout the current construction season as it will be used as a lay-down area.
The Hopkinton Garden Club’s annual spring plant sale is scheduled to take place on Saturday, May 7, from 8 a.m. to noon at the Hopkinton Town Common. Club members will be selling perennials, many dug from their own gardens, and annuals, to include a wide variety of flowers, vegetables and herbs.
