Shorts from the Selectmen, September 27
• Filming on Town Common. The town has received a request to use the Town Common to film for two days, Friday, October 21, and Saturday, October 22. A small production company, which is not paying its actors, will depict a town fair scene in a ten-minute film. The Selectmen approved the request pending approval by the Town Common Committee and the First Religious Society(FRS). The production company needs to contact the church, the Gleason Library, or Town Hall for use of bathrooms, and they must release the town from any liability.
• Cemetery hayride. The FRS has requested permission to conduct a Harvest Fair hayride through Green Cemetery on Sunday, October 15, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The Selectmen approved the request, provided that there will be no other activity at the cemetery.
• Stop sign at Nickles and East. The Selectmen approved a request to place a stop sign at the base of Nickles Lane near the East Street intersection, where a blind spot exists. Police Chief David Galvin agreed with the request.
• Most dangerous intersections. The Carlisle Police Department presented an update on the most dangerous intersections in Carlisle, the number of accidents recorded at the intersection, and actions required for safety improvement. (See box.) In most cases, the traffic hazard was due to limited sight lines.
