What are Your Concerns

by Ken Lefebrve, Jr.
February 29, 2012

I'm currently running a survey with other members of the Roosevelt Institute
to try to gauge the concerns of the people of the Commonwealth.

I'm currently running a survey with other members of the Roosevelt Institute
to try to gauge the concerns of the people of the Commonwealth. The Roosevelt
Institute Campus Network is a non-profit, student-run network working towards
developing a policy blueprint for the state's future generation of voters.
Although we designed this survey with students in mind, we are looking for
responses from any and all people living in the state and would greatly
appreciate any input that Holliston and its surrounding communities have to
offer.

The Massachusetts of 2040

As election cycles come to pass every few years, they bring to light those hot-button issues reflecting problems that are of the most immediate concern to the most people.

The Much-anticipated Mudville Traffic Study is Here!

by Chris Cain

When I studied science in school (in addition to reading, writing, and 'rithmetic of course), the professor would say, "In God We Trust, All Others Bring Data." Holliston's Board of Selectmen must have gone to the same school because they wanted data before considering any traffic volume and speed mitigation strategies in Mudville. The McMahon group recently delivered their 104 page report to the Selectmen (and to the public via the town's website). https://www.townofholliston.us/sites/hollistonma/files/uploads/mcmahon_mudville_traffic_pattern_analysis_memo_2018-11-07.pdf Rather than having everyone read the entire report, below are some of the data presented in a 'did you know' format. Did you know the current speed limit on all streets in Mudville is exactly the same as on Route 16 in downtown Holliston - 30 mph. Looking at the compilation photo above, what might strike you - besides that there are no speed limit signs anywhere in Mudville?
