Hopkinton Today: Thursday, April 27

by | Apr 27, 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 Conservation Commission at its meeting Tuesday night addressed concerns about the tree clearing off of Kimball Road in the Springwood neighborhood, noting that the town is powerless to stop it because of the issuance of a state permit by the Department of Conservation and Recreation.

This week’s Police Log includes one arrest along with reports of an electricity issue that caused appliances to behave erratically, and a suspicious individual in front of a house who turned out to be a high school student playing a game.

The town’s Water Department announced that a section of School Street will be closed from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. on Thursday and Friday so a private contractor can install a new water line for a homeowner.

On May 10, the Hopkinton Historical Society will provide two guided tours in Woonsocket, Rhode Island: the Museum of Work and Culture, and St. Ann Arts and Cultural Center.

The Friends of Hopkinton Seniors will host its annual fundraising Plant Sale at the Senior Center on Friday, May 19, from 9 a.m.-2 p.m., and Saturday, May 20, from 9 a.m.-noon. A large variety of vegetables, flowers and plants grown and donated by greenhouse volunteers will be available at rock-bottom prices, along with gardening books, cookbooks, children’s books, antique books, DVDs, CDs and more.

Town meetings tonight include the Parks & Recreation Commission (5:30), Capital Improvement Committee (6), Upper Charles Trail Committee (6:30) and School Committee (7).
