Canton Selectmen to Meet Tonight: Reservoir Pond on the Agenda

The Canton Board of Selectmen are set to discuss Reservoir Pond and other issues tonight at 7:00 p.m.

will be a topic of discussion at tonight's Canton Board of Selectmen meeting. Tonight's agenda includes update, an assessors reclassification hearing and Safe Haven Act signs.

The town has been in over the past several months. The conversation includes repairs to the pond, which the owners must make, prior to the town accepting the pond as a donation.

The update was tabled at the last selectmen's meeting on October 25.

At the last meeting, the selectmen heard a presentation from on a parking expansion plan.

Paul Brodmerkel, managing partner at Site Design Professionals, LLC, told the BOS that due to structural damage at Meditech's current open-air, parking facility, there is a need to create more parking at the Canton company.

According to Brodmerkel, during the winter months, the parking garage, (which is not covered) looses about 300 spaces due to snow and ice issues that have been causing cars to be damaged from falling concrete. The proposed plan would add 325 parking spaces to Meditech. They would be located between 128 and the current parking garage, he said.

The board asked to tour the facility and gather more information from Meditech before they would take a vote on the proposal.

Also at the last meeting, residents expressed concern with Mass Department of Transportation’s suggested improvement plan for Dedham Street/I-95.

The residents expressed concerns with the state's plan and potential traffic chaos that could occur once the expansions are made.

Town Administrator Bill Friel said the town's been involved with submitting feedback to the state since 1998, and will continue to represent Canton's concerns.

Tonight's Board of Selectmen meeting is scheduled for 7:00 p.m. at .
