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 and video of the day.

The Planning Board at its meeting Monday decided in an 8-0 vote to continue the hearing for 17 Main Street after concerns arose about the parking layout and the ability of emergency vehicles to have enough space to access the building, which the owner is looking to expand as it undergoes renovations due to damage caused in last year’s fire.

This week’s Marathon Spotlight shines on Marla Oram, who is running to raise funds for Hopkinton High School’s Business Professionals of America Club as well as the school’s robotics team.

The 13th annual Hopkinton Tennis Tournament was held over the weekend, and we have results and photos from the event.

Town meetings tonight include the Parks & Recreation Commission (5:30) and the Sustainable Green Committee (6:30).
