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 video or two to brighten your morning.
Tuesday’s Select Board meeting mostly focused on housekeeping issues, but the Main Street Corridor Project was on everyone’s minds. Board member Brian Herr said the board should be careful regarding its interaction with residents who have complaints. “We have to follow that directive from Town Meeting and build the project,” he said. “There’s 18,000 people that we represent. The 18,000 is the general will of the community. Twenty people is not the will of the community, and we can’t let them derail this project, as some have clearly tried in recent weeks. That’s not fair to the rest of the town.”
The Planning Board on Monday voted against recommending Town Meeting passage of a citizen-submitted article that calls for the rescinding of a prohibition on town trash pickup at garden apartments.
Town meetings tonight include the Sustainable Green Committee (6:30), Board of Appeals (7), Marathon Committee (7) and Trustees of the School Fund (7).
