Town Meeting to receive petitions seeking street acceptance


At least four and possibly more petitions will come before residents at the May 13 annual Town Meeting seeking street acceptance for roads in town. Planning coordinator Katrina O’Leary has developed a process accepted by the Board of Selectmen to bring the streets to Town Meeting for official acceptance. While there are temporary mechanisms that allow the town to plow and maintain streets built as part of new developments, official acceptance is a necessary step in creating clearly defined public ways owned and maintained by the town. Town Administrator Ira Singer said there are currently petitions for Dolan Drive, White Lane, Ross Lane, and Warren Drive.
