Warrants & Reports

Finance Committee Recommendation

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.
