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.
The Planning Board at its meeting Monday night discussed requests from Eversource for stormwater management and earth removal permits at its LNG facility as well as updates from board liaisons on making Hopkinton’s trails systems more interconnected.
The town recently released a summary of the National Community Survey Livability Report, which was conducted last summer by the National Research Center. The results show that the overall image/reputation of Hopkinton is higher than the national average, with 91 percent of respondents rating it as either excellent or good. The overall quality of life in town also is reported as higher than the national average, with 94 percent of those surveyed stating it’s either excellent or good.
An art exhibit titled “When We Were Trees” is underway at the Hopkinton Center for the Arts’ Lotvin Family Gallery. In “When We Were Trees,” Linda Hoffman and daughter Ariel Matisse demonstrate, through the mutuality and interconnectedness of their art, how women empower each other when they connect with nature, trees, and their own bodies. The exhibit is open to the public through Aug. 27.
Town meetings tonight include the Board of Appeals (7) and Trails Coordination and Management Committee (7:30).
