"they hope their input doesn't fall on deaf ears"

The Economic Development committee meets to discuss and decide on revisions to the Pond St Request for Proposal (RFP).  The RFP would be revised and posted to allow proposals on how the for sewer bed property would be developed. If one of the proposals meet the desires of the Town Council the land could be sold.

The Pond St neighbors would like to get their say in what restrictions would be imposed on the developer to help preserve the area.

The meeting will be held in the 3rd Floor Training Room at the Municipal building on East Central St.  The meeting is scheduled to start at 6:30 PM.

Area residents voiced concern over the amount of condos or apartments that the town would allow a developer to build. 
Up to 14 units are permitted now, and Bissanti admitted he does not see that number changing. 
"I just don’t want the guts torn out of the RFP," he said. "That may happen if we play around too much with the density limits." 
He and other town officials hope this will be the last time they'll need to put out a Pond Street RFP. They are encouraging residents to attend Tuesday's meeting and upcoming meetings with the Planning Board and council to pitch possible traffic improvements to busy Pond Street, such as lights or islands.
