The selectmen meet Monday night. The board will discuss Town Manager and selectmen’s goals; approve one-day beer and wine licenses; a draft for the tax relief committee and correspondence about the Historic Districts Committee. The board meets at 7 p.m. in the Town House.

The Planning Board meets on Tuesday, July 11 at 7:30 p.m. at 141 Keyes Road. Among the items on the agenda is an opinion and/or recommendation to the selectmen about the West Concord Advisory Committee. The new committee is an outgrowth of the West Concord Task Force some of whose members do not want to disband now that the work charged under the Task Force is complete. The Advisory Committee would stay in operation through next year, if it is sanctioned by the town.

The Board of Appeals meets on Thursday evening at 7:30 p.m. at 141 Keyes Road. Among the agenda items is a continuance on permits for a non-conforming structure and relief from parking requirements on Bradford Street by John Boynton. Also, the board will conduct a hearing about new pricing lights for 686 Elm Street and a special permit for alteration at the site, and a sign at 97 Lowell Rd. for the entrance to the new Trail’s End Cafe.

At the Council on Aging, 1276 Main Street, there are two events this week of note.

This workshop is a broad approach to Memoir writing
and will provide suggestions on organizing your photos and mementos. Be sure to bring the materials you wish to work with. First time writers and those who have had some experience are welcome. Time will be spent writing and reading back (optional) your work. There will be a pause for refreshments. On Aug. 23 we will have a second session. Please sign up for one or both.

Last but not least at the COA this week is a patio ice cream social on Thursday, July 14 at 2:30 p.m. Join your friends for this pleasant afternoon. Sign up at 978 318 3020.
