Lynnfield Selectmen Plan to Override Town Meeting vote on signs
by topics01940

For the first time in Lynnfield history the Board of Selectmen are prepared to overrule the will of the people as expressed at Town Meeting.”
At the Selectmen’s meeting on this Monday evening there is an agenda item described as:
Naming unnamed public way “Market Street”
If this is passed the following will take place:
1. This unnamed public way will then be called Market Street.
2. The vote at Town Meeting will be effectively negated
3. National Development will have their public way designation for MarketStreet
4. MA DOT will then construct the signs on 128, both North and Southbound.
It only took 10 days time for the vote of Town Meeting to be over ruled. People that contacted us cannot remember such an action in the Town’s history.
There is no indication that the Town has negotiated any mitigation for the signage.
As noted in the Lynnfield Villager editorial, National Development is getting “more for nothing”.
We hope that there is some explanation for the urgency of this action at the hearing.
If you can attend, the meeting is this Monday evening, May 19th, at 7:00 PM in the Selectmen’s room at Town Hall.
Thank you,
Wally
