The Select Board meets on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of each month. Since last week saw the 5th Tuesday of March, and this week had the first Tuesday of April, the Board has an extra week between meetings. The extra week presents a great opportunity to catch up on the latest developments with Westford’s local government.
At their March 22nd meeting, the Board met with the School Committee to elect an alternate to the Nashoba Tech School Committee. Then, they heard about the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee’s recommendation to replace Columbus Day with Indigenous People’s Day. They also approved the initial stage of a development agreement with a residential developer to construct a multi-family apartment complex.
The next Select Board meeting will be Tuesday, April 12th. The agenda is not available yet but will be posted at least 48 hours before the meeting. The live stream on WestfordCAT’s YouTube channel will be available here.
And the extra week between meetings presents a great opportunity to check out the Ten Minute Citizen playlist, to catch up on older Select Board meetings you may have missed.
