New material alert – LOTS of new files from Developers

I have only started to wade through these files, but there are a LOT of new materials posted that will likely be discussed (at length!) at the Planning Board on Monday (9/11, 8pm, Library), including this Redlined version of on Updated Site Plan.

I think there are a few take-home points:

1. I think it is VERY farfetched to think that the Public Comment period can be closed on 9/11, despite the suggestion by the Worcester Business Journal. There are still too many documents that the public (and the Planning Board) need to have a chance to review. I can say, for one, that I will object loudly if the PB suggests it is time to close the comment period and make their decision.

2. There will likely be a LOT to hear on 9/11 – new material, from the developers and from the public. Please come! (or watch on Facebook, if you are a member of our private group.)

3. I have a lot of reading to do! ūüėČ ¬†I’ll try to get a summary / review of the materials up soon, but with the Harvest Fair on Saturday, I’m not sure how much time I’ll have. If anyone wants to help and write a post to share, please reach out!
