EDC Meets June 12th

Economic Development Committee members met Wednesday morning in the Select Board's meeting room at 8 a.m.  A grants program that passed annual town meeting last month must still be passed by the legislature. That proposal has yet to be filed with the state. The program for local businesses will be independently funded and committee member Peter Barbieri said one local bank is already interested in helping to fund the program.

Town Administrator Jeff Ritter noted that his office has already been collecting prices for tear-downs relative to 9 Green Street. The full 9 Green Street Committee is slated to be appointed on Monday night with a goal of deciding what to do with the former Ty-Car building that the town is taking for failure to pay property taxes. The committee will propose what to do with the building and property.

Ritter also announced that McMahon Engineers (the traffic lights folks) would be in town at 2 p.m. to look at complaints about traffic backing up along Washington Street during the day. The above photo was taken at 2:20 p.m. and shows selectwoman Tina Hein discussing traffic with McMahon representatives.

Peter Barbieri noted that the other committee that he serves on (Blair Square Committee) would be meeting with the Select Board Monday night to give them an update on plans by that committee. Barbieri stated he felt Blair Square would make a good venue for a farmers market,  and also said the square would benefit from having toilet facilities.
