They’ll discuss potential development for the commercial buildings on Main Street, from West Plain Street down to Route 30. Please join us starting Sunday, Dec. 9th.

The Buzz airs on Sundays and Tuesdays, at 10am and 6pm on your Public cable channel (Comcast Ch. 8; Verizon Ch. 37), and online on-demand anytime at their website: WayCAM.tv/buzz
