The Board of Selectmen will meet on Monday, May 20, 2013 in Wayland Town Building beginning at 7:00 p.m.
After reviewing the meeting agenda for the viewing public and making any announcements, Selectmen will hear public comment. At 7:15 p.m., the Board will then consider the liquor license application of Takara Japanese Restaurant, a new eatery in the Town Center, as well as a change of manager application from Coach Grill.
At approximately 7:40 p.m., Selectmen will discuss with the Police Chief the analysis of the traffic impact of the use of a “do not enter between 6:00 and 9:00 a.m.” on Mitchell Street to address neighborhood concerns about cut-through traffic to and from the area of Wayland Middle School since November 2012. The Board approved the restriction, subject to a six month review. Selectmen will consider whether to leave the sign in place.
Next, the Board is expected to complete work on organizational matters, including adoption of guiding principles and code of conduct and a review of goals and priorities through September 2013.
After Selectmen consider the consent calendar and review correspondence, the Board will consider the intermunicipal agreement with the Town of Sudbury for recreation services before hearing the report of the Town Administrator, which will include an update on pending matters and a review of upcoming meeting agenda topics.
Later, the Board will consider the request from the Finance Committee regarding the request to appropriate from the reserve fund for FY2013 sufficient funds to obtain assessments of issues related to the designated River Road site and access road for a new Department of Public Works facility. Funds would address information desired by citizens at town meeting concerning wetlands mitigation for road improvements, safeguarding the facility from methane migration from the capped landfill, and assessing the potential for significant Native American artifacts in the area to be disturbed to extend the access road. The Finance Committee conditioned its approval of the request upon a commitment by the Selectmen to pursue the River Road parcel to a fall Special Town Meeting subject to the information gathered in the assessments.
Before adjourning the meeting, Selectmen will offer their own reports and concerns.
The session begins at 7:00 p.m. in the Selectmen’s Meeting Room.

Wayland Town Crier 5/12/13: Important presentation in Wayland on medical marijuana. Medical marijuana is now legal in Massachusetts. What does this mean for communities? What’s in the law? What’s not in the law? What are the implications for our youth? And what’s the best conversation to have with our children about marijuana to prevent teen use? Learn from the experts in a program for the entire Wayland community on Tuesday, May 14 at 7:30pm at Wayland Middle School Auditorium, sponsored by WaylandCares and Wayland High School’s Guidance Department.
In an effort to improve communication with residents, the Board of Selectmen holds office hours about once a month. While selectmen are available by telephone at home, can be contacted by email, and hold public comment at the beginning of each regular meeting, these office hours will afford citizens another opportunity to express opinions on town issues or to discuss an individual concern directly with two members of the Board.
The next opportunity to meet with Selectmen will be held on Friday, May 17, 2013, from 8:45 a.m. to 9:45 a.m. at the Panera Bread in the Wayland Town Center on Route 20 (Boston Post Road). As the sessions will be held on a drop-in basis, no appointment is necessary. Selectmen Joe Nolan and Tony Boschetto will be available to meet with interested citizens.
Should you prefer to confer directly with any member of the Board of Selectmen on any matter, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to share your comments, pose a question, or request an appointment.
Note: this date is updated from the original post; the originally posted date was May 18, but the Town changed it on May 13.
