Hopkinton Today: Thursday, April 28

by | Apr 28, 2022 | 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 and video of the day.

Much like 170-plus other Massachusetts communities, town planners in Hopkinton have a number of concerns and questions surrounding the state’s mandate requiring zoning for new housing. The law affects so-called “MBTA communities,” cities or towns that host MBTA service, abut a city or town that hosts MBTA service or have been added to the MBTA.

This week’s Police Log includes reports of a search for the driver of a vehicle after an accident on Pond Street, unlicensed children driving vehicles at a high rate of speed, and a threat by a potential dog buyer.

Hopkinetics Team 2602 will host a Family Fun Day at EMC Park on Saturday, April 30, from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. to raise money for the robotics team’s trip to the world championships in Dallas in early May.

Greyhound Friends will host a volunteer information session on Saturday, April 30, from 10-11:30 a.m. for new, returning and potential volunteers. Advance registration is required.

Town meetings tonight include the Housing Authority (6), School Committee (7) and Community Preservation Committee (7) as well as a Pedestrian Connectivity Discussion (5:30).
