Wellesley selectmen will meet tonight to discuss the upcoming tree bylaw, detours during the installation of the Cedar Street bridge, and updates on high school building project.

The meeting will begin at 6:30 p.m. in Town Hall.

The selectmen will receive an update on the detour plans for the Cedar Street bridge, which is the portion of Cedar Street that crosses Route 9.

The new bridge has already been built and is set to be implemented this weekend. The street will be shut off at 10 p.m. Friday night and will be closed until 10 p.m. on Monday, July 4. Both Cedar Street and a portion of Route 9 will be shut off during the duration.

The selectmen will discuss the Tree Bank Schedule and decide the new fees for removing larger trees in zoned areas in Wellesley. The fees are going to be implemented on July 1. They are part of new bylaws approved at Town Meeting.

The Wellesley Square initiative will be introduced. “It is an effort to study what we need to do to ensure the long term vitality of Wellesley Square,” said Wellesley Executive Director Hans Larsen. “It is premature to say what the outcome of that study will be.”

The selectmen will also receive an update on the Fuller Brook Park Improvement Project. The project is being coordinated by the Natural Resources Commission and the Fuller Brook Park Coordinating Committee to preserve and restore the aesthetics and historic integrity of the park. The project will implement plants, path systems, and make improvements to the park’s infrastructure.
