Hopkinton Today: Monday, July 24

by | Jul 24, 2023 | Featured: Features, Hopkinton Today

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 search for a missing swimmer in Lake Maspenock came to a tragic end Saturday morning, as the body of a 21-year-old Hopkinton resident who failed to return from a Friday evening swim off Sandy Beach was pulled from the water by emergency personnel.

The Community Preservation Committee at its meeting Thursday night discussed an apparent misunderstanding about the parameters of outreach required for a $40,000 grant approved at May’s Annual Town Meeting for the Trail Coordination and Management Committee to conduct a preliminary engineering study for the proposed western alternative route for the Upper Charles Trail.

The Select Board met for nearly two hours on Thursday night to discuss members’ most pressing priorities, reflect on the past year’s accomplishments and brainstorm about overarching town goals.

The upper and main beaches at Hopkinton State Park remained closed after being deemed unsafe for swimming due to high bacteria counts, an issue that is being seen in beaches throughout the state.

A Boston-based alternative rock band requested permission to film a music video at Sandy Beach in September, the Parks & Recreation Department interim director announced at Wednesday’s Parks & Recreation Commission meeting.

Town meetings tonight include the Board of Health (5:30), Affordable Housing Trust Fund Board (6) and Planning Board (7).
