Community Redevelopment Act vetoed

The Community Redevelopment Act, which would have provided a mechanism for towns to fund open space, affordable housing, and historic preservation, was vetoed by Governor Paul Cellucci and, according to Senator Susan Fargo, is "dead for this session." At an August 8 meeting, chair of the board of selectman Michael Fitzgerald emphasized that this legislation would have given Carlisle "the tools to help us deal with some of our primary issues." Fargo agreed, "It's a good piece of legislation and I will keep pushing."
