8 Arch Bridge Railings Arriving Soon

by Bobby Blair
May 1, 2018

Selectmen Monday night pow-wowed with key players in anticipation of the upcoming Annual Town Meeting on May 7th. Selectmen met to review the warrant with the Chairman of the town's finance committee Ked Szajda, right, Town Moderator Jackie Dellicker and Town Counsel Jay Talerman. A concensus among the selectmen and the trio was to drop the reading of sub line items in the omnibus budget along with actual figures in hopes of stream lining the process. Residents would still be able to question line items if they wished to do so.

Kris Westland, Chairperson of the Community Farm Advisory Committee, gave an update on her board's activities. Westland said that a greenhouse on the farm property hopefully will be completed by Memorial Day and a make-over of the barn by the end of June. Her board is in the process of  installing a new septic system at the property thanks to design services donated by CIVILized Solutions and construction services donated by Rodenhiser. Family Farm Day will be held on June 10th.

Town Administrator Jeff Ritter announced that the new railings at the 8 Arch Bridge will be arriving on May 7th. The board appointed Robert Hopkins to the Council of Aging.

Several events were approved by the board including the Ashland Lion's Triathlon (which uses Holliston's Highland and Prentice Streets), Holliston Lions Club White Cane Drive in East Holliston on May 12th, HBA's Springfest on May 19th, and a 4th of July Celebration to honor Rail Trail members and the completion of the 8 Arch Bridge hosted by the Friends of Holliston Trails.

The Much-anticipated Mudville Traffic Study is Here!

by Chris Cain

When I studied science in school (in addition to reading, writing, and 'rithmetic of course), the professor would say, "In God We Trust, All Others Bring Data." Holliston's Board of Selectmen must have gone to the same school because they wanted data before considering any traffic volume and speed mitigation strategies in Mudville. The McMahon group recently delivered their 104 page report to the Selectmen (and to the public via the town's website). https://www.townofholliston.us/sites/hollistonma/files/uploads/mcmahon_mudville_traffic_pattern_analysis_memo_2018-11-07.pdf Rather than having everyone read the entire report, below are some of the data presented in a 'did you know' format. Did you know the current speed limit on all streets in Mudville is exactly the same as on Route 16 in downtown Holliston - 30 mph. Looking at the compilation photo above, what might strike you - besides that there are no speed limit signs anywhere in Mudville?
