2 - Town Center Improvement Project - Public Input Meeting
On June 13th, the Town Center Planning Committee, along with its planning consultants from Utile, will present designs for Weston's Town Center.

Representatives will be on the Town Green at 6:30 p.m. during the annual ice cream social (more on that further down) to show designs and solicit input. A more formal meeting will begin at 7:30 p.m. in the Town Hall Auditorium where four different elements of the Town Center design - design/landscape, traffic/safety, parking, undergrounding utilities - will be broken out separately so residents can provide more specific feedback per element.
