The new library plans continued to evolve from where they left off at the end of last year. A modified site plan, new schematic plan and estimated project budget figures for the new addition were presented last night at the Permanent Building Committee (PBC) meeting.

Philip O’Brien from Johnson Roberts Associates was on had to unveil the new designs at the January 6th meeting. But, before O’Brien could display the latest plans, the PBC had to address an issue dealing with a recently discovered property line discrepancy.

Selectmen Approve Legacy Farms Changes

mark's picture

Legacy Farms cleared a major hurdle last night with a favorable vote from the Board of Selectmen. The latest amendment to the Host Community Agreement, requested by the project’s developer, was unanimously approved by the board during their December 22 meeting.

As the selectmen awaited the start of the meeting, final negotiations between Legacy Farms and Hopkinton’s Town Counsel were still being ironed out. Once the parties made it to the meeting table, the discussion was fairly brief and the vote unanimous.
