FM #505 - Community Preservation Committee - 04/06/21 (audio)

FM #505 = This is the Franklin Matters radio show, number 505 in the series. 

This session of the radio show shares the Community Preservation Committee meeting held on Tuesday, April 6, 2021.

The meeting was conducted in a hybrid format: all but one of the Committee members, Town Administrator and key personnel, were in the Council Chambers; the public and one committee member were remote via conference bridge, all to adhere to the ‘social distancing’ requirements of this pandemic period.

Links to the meeting agenda and associated documents are included in the show notes. The recording runs about 75 minutes, so let’s listen to the Community Preservation Committee meeting.
