News About Town: After the two major accidents last week in the residential section of John Street it’s even more imperative to discuss a safe plan for the future of the corridor. The John Street Working Group meeting is tonight, November 5, at 6 PM at Town Hall. This is a chance to give input, to see and learn about the consensus design created by the Working Group, and give direction on how the committee will proceed. There will be several ways to interact, but are limited to those in attendance. If you can’t make it in person, the meeting will be live-streamed on the Town’s Facebook page, but the smart phone polling and input will not be available to those at home. Comments, however, will be taken.
