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 voted 7-2 at Monday’s meeting to remove both articles regarding tree protection from the 2021 Town Meeting warrant, deeming that they needed further input from developers and the real estate community before proceeding to Town Meeting. The board decided to send the issue back to the Zoning Advisory Committee (ZAC) for further discussion.
The Planning Board at its Monday night meeting urged Grasshopper Energy to revise its stormwater mitigation plan as part of its plan to construct a 2.4 megawatt solar array off Wilson Street, advising that the area underneath the proposed solar panels should not use gravel to prevent runoff.
The Hopkinton Relay for Life, which supports the American Cancer Society, will hold a fundraiser this Sunday from 12-3 p.m. Twenty percent of in-store purchases at the Vineyard Vines store in Wrentham during that time will be donated to the organization.
