Latest town news & announcements
Conway’s Parks, Recreation, and Trails Committee has hit one out of the park, with the Massachusetts Executive Office of Housing and Economic Development announcing December 12 that the Conway Downtown Parking and Safety Improvements Project ($997,521) has been approved. The MassWorks award will improve infrastructure related to public safety, create handicap accessibility to the public park area and correct Town field drainage issues in Conway’s Downtown. The shovel-ready project will complement $870,000 already contributed by the Town for related Downtown projects over the past ten years. In addition, the project is consistent with the Goals & Objectives for the Regional Plan for Sustainable Development for Franklin County which supports the revitalization of mixed use districts in existing town centers.
Congratulations to all who made this happen!
The ZBA considers petitions for variances from the town’s zoning by-law (for example, the set-back distance from the road or from other properties). Currently, there are two open seats. Please contact Tom Hutcheson, Town Administrator, if you’re interested.
The Conway Community Preservation Committee (CPC) has funds available for open space & recreation projects, historical preservation, and community housing. Citizens and groups are encouraged to develop proposals for the Committee’s consideration. A short Community Preservation Act (CPA) Pre-Proposal Information Form and complete applications are online at http://townofconway.com/committees/community-preservation/. The short form is also available at the Town Office.
Anyone wishing to make an appointment with the Committee, or discuss ideas should contact Janet Chayes ([email protected] 369-4697). Proposals are welcome at any time, but March 3, 2014 is the deadline to submit full applications for potential consideration by Town Meeting in May.
Since 2006 Conway citizens have approved 14 CPA projects to enhance the community which total $464,882.
The draft Open Space and Recreation Plan is now available for review on the Open Space Committee page.
