by | Dec 6, 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 Select Board at its meeting Tuesday approved a common victualer’s license for Domino’s Pizza to operate out of 70 Main Street, and the owner said he hopes to open by the end of this year or early January. The building is the site of the former Old Town Liquors.

The leaders of the Hopkinton Democratic Town Committee and the Hopkinton Republican Town Committee might not agree on political ideology. But in separate recent interviews with the Independent, they shared the common goal of a return to civility in political discourse.

The state’s Department of Environmental Protection in early November cited the private wastewater treatment plant at Legacy Farms for having a higher than permitted level of nitrogen discharge in the groundwater. The problem has been corrected and nitrogen levels are within regulatory limits, according to a Nov. 30 letter from the water engineering consultant working with Legacy Farms.

The Planning Board at its joint meeting with the Select Board Monday night voted 9-1 for Parker Happ to become its newest member.

This week’s Real Estate Transactions list shows three sales, including one for $1.7 million.
