At the Board of Selectmen’s public discussion on the Main Street reconstruction project, a resident suggested that the Department of Public Works create a video. His idea was for DPW Director Karen Galligan to literally walk through the project on Southborough streets.
Galligan loved the idea. She solicited help from Southborough Access Media to produce the video above.
Instead of trying to interpret written plans, you can look at video of the current streets, sidewalks, stonewalls and trees effected by the plan.
In the video, Galligan points out changes under the 25% complete design plan. She explains reasoning and describes where decisions still need to be refined (like possible bump outs to protect specific trees).
The presentation is 36 minutes long, so you’ll need to set aside some time to take a full look. (I haven’t had the time yet, myself!)
Any questions you still have on the project you can bring to the DPW’s April 2nd public meeting, 7:00 pm at the Southborough Senior Center.
