The Planning Board discussed Eversource’s improvement project at the liquefied natural gas (LNG) facility at 52 Wilson Street for the majority of Monday’s hour-long meeting. The main issue was the request for additional tree cuttings at the southern border of the site in the vicinity of a new flare stack, which was unanimously approved.
Scouts BSA Troop 11 has partnered with the local French pastry chefs at B. Food to run a pie fundraiser through Nov. 6.
