- Finance Committee Recommendation for Oct 5th Special Town Meeting
The Finance Committee recommends approval of Article 1, the 129 Parker Street Concept Plan. We feel the project will be a step forward for the town, developing a long dormant parcel and bringing new revenue to the town. The project has been shaped by input from town residents and includes a supermarket, other retail stores, a senior housing facility, and residential apartments. A fiscal impact analysis by a town consultant estimates net revenue to the town of $550,000 per year. The finance committee believes this is a conservative estimate. In addition, the development agreement provides significant benefits to the town to address traffic and infrastructure concerns. (30-Sep-2016)
