Preview of Board of Selectmen Meeting, Monday, January 30, 2012

The Board of Selectmen will meet on Monday, January 30, 2012 in Town Building.

After reviewing the agenda and receiving public comment.  Selectmen will conduct a public hearing on the application of Sandy Burr Country Club to permit sale of beer on the golf course during tournaments.

At approximately 7:30 p.m., the Board will discuss possible modifications to the mitigation agreement for the Danforth Green housing project off Old Connecticut Path just over the town line in Framingham.  Recent interest in reducing the size of the project and offering new benefits to both towns are tied to requests for changes in the mitigation plan.  Input from several boards and citizens who participated in negotiations of the 2005 agreement will be heard.

Later, Selectmen will consider creating two temporary advisory committees.  The first panel will review the proposed amenities and layout of the town green to be constructed at the Wayland Town Center development.  The second group will include stakeholders involved with Wayland Cares program, reviewing programs to determine which might continue if no new grant funds are secured when the current funding expires in 2013.

The Board will review the status of various articles submitted for inclusion in the 2012 Annual Town Meeting Warrant.  It is customary that the text of some articles are modified to achieve stated goals and meet legal requirements during the vetting process that is ongoing through the printing of the Warrant in mid-March.

Selectmen will then consider the consent calendar and review correspondence before listening to the weekly report of the Town Administrator and previewing of the schedule and agenda topics for the next several meetings.  Selectmen will then offer their reports and concerns, including an update on continuing efforts to improve financial reporting and discuss issues related to the construction of Town Center.

The meeting begins at 7:00 p.m. in the Selectmen's Meeting Room.
