Underground Utility Study Committee


The Select Board is committed to improving the viability of Main Street in the Historic District.  The 2011 Master Plan encourages that utilities be placed underground on Main Street.  The Subdivision Regulations require that all utilities in new subdivisions be installed underground. The charge of the committee is to study the laws and regulations that require placing existing utilities underground and determine the mechanism to move this forward.  In addition, the Committee shall develop cost estimates and a plan for the implementation of placing the existing utilities on Main Street from Old Ayer Road to Champney Street underground.   The Committee shall hold public hearings and notify abutters directly impacted by this proposal.  The Committee shall provide the Board with a report of their findings.
