BOS WEEKLY UPDATE – November 16, 2017

Take the new Master Plan SurveyThe development of our new master plan is entering a critical phase as we work to develop specific action steps that will advance the Shared Community Vision developed earlier. Tell us how you think we should manage new development going forward by completing our online survey. What are the lasting legacies we should be creating today for future generations? 

Recreational Marijuana Facilities in MBTS: At our October town meeting, Manchester by the Sea voters enacted a limited moratorium on local recreational marijuana establishments.  This gives our town time to ensure the new law will be implemented in manner that protects public interests and does not negatively impact residents, businesses, neighborhoods or economic development.  We’d like to hear from you regarding recreational marijuana establishments in Manchester by the Sea.  Representatives of the Board of Selectman, the Board of Health, and the Planning Board will be hosting two listening sessions for townspeople to raise their concerns.  These sessions will be on Monday, December 4th, 5:00-6:15 pm in Town Hall, Room 5 and Saturday January 27th, 9:00-10:30 am at Seaside One.  Resident participation is essential in developing future policy.  Please join us.  Your opinion is needed.  We’ll be there to listen and discuss future options.

Construction Activity Update:  Water valves in the intersection of Pleasant and School Street need to be replaced.  The work will necessitate the closure of the intersection starting at 6:30PM and extending until 5:30 AM the next morning beginning Monday November 27 and again on Tuesday and Wednesday.  Notices of detours will be posted.  Use Exit 16 off of Route 128 instead of Exit 15 to come into the Village!

New Smart 911 Program:  The Police Department and the Council on Aging have teamed up to offer a new, free Safety Profile that can include any information you want 911 and first responders to have in the event of an emergency. The information you provide is immediately displayed to 911 call takers who can relay the information to responders. Sign up at the Police Department, the COA Office, or online at www. smart911.com.
