Group to develop bow-hunting policy for town land

(Continued)

Bill said he learned that a plan to install sidewalks near the town’s only elementary school would likely be cost-prohibitive due to the amount of infrastructure work need to access the school site up on top of Pipestave Hill. However, the state is amenable to partnering with the town to upgrade the town’s current sidewalks, which run along Main Street from the Training Field down to the Groveland border, Bill said.

The board also discussed an offer to obtain a 1.9-acre tract of non-developable, mostly swampland that is currently part of the Webster property on Wood Street.

Selectmen meet next on Jan. 9 at 7 p.m. in the first floor hearing room on the 1910 Town Office Building.
