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 of the day.

The Community Preservation Committee met for an hour on Thursday to provide a quarterly review of projects that are currently receiving CPC funding and to announce that applications are now being accepted for the new funding cycle.

Charlotte Colella, a member of the Hopkinton High School Athletic Hall of Fame and a co-owner of the now-defunct Colella’s Supermarket, passed away over the weekend at the age of 94.

As part of the Main Street Corridor Project this week, crews will winterize some sections of gravel and perform temporary paving on those areas throughout the site. Workers also will continue adjusting various structures that have settled in the road and potentially pave the top course for the bike lane (pending structure adjustments).

The town’s Department of Public Works provided an update on roadwork for five streets that started earlier this month. Affected roads are: Appaloosa Circle, Ridge Road, Breakneck Hill Road, Glen Road (from Lumber Street to Breakneck Hill Road) and Gibbon Road.

The water quality at the upper beach at Hopkinton State Park returned to an unsafe level for swimming due to an increase in enterococci bacteria over the past week, according to water sample test results released Friday, while the water quality at the main beach remains unsuitable for swimming.

Town meetings tonight include the South Middlesex Regional Vocational School Committee (7).
