Preservation panel makes spending suggestions

Earlier this month, the Community Preservation Committee voted to recommend 12 appropriations to be voted on at the annual Town Meeting in April. Their recommendations include $25,000 to complete the Wilson Mill construction project with landscaping and plants; $59,500 to upgrade mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems at Town Hall; $100,000 for restoration of the historical Depot Building, which would represent the third and final phase of restoration in Depot Park; $125,000 for resurfacing Bedford’s section of the Minuteman Bikeway; $122,000 for reconstruction of the middle school tennis courts; and $355,000 to be put toward the artificial turf implementation at Sabourin Field. Town Meeting will convene April 1.
