Information about the proposal can be found at the Save Our Heritage website:


The Concord Select Board is likely to discuss the project and a possible response, such as a letter from the town to the governor, at their upcoming Monday, May 22 meeting.

Look for the Select Board’s meeting agenda on the town website: concordma.gov. Please attend to learn more and express your opinion on this project.
