Shorts from the Board of Selectmen, April 11
• Warrant Articles. The Board of Selectmen reviewed each of the 28 Articles in the 2006 Town Warrant and voted on their recommendations to the voters of Carlisle. A copy of the green- covered Town Warrant book is expected to be mailed to each resident this week. Using this book as reference, the Board voted to recommend the passage of Articles: 1, 3, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 13, 14, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 23, 24, 27 and 28. They decided to postpone their recommendations on Articles 2, 4, 11, 12, 15, 16, 22, 25 and 26 until they receive additional information.
Article 26, which involves allocation of funds by the Community Preservation Committee, consists of five appropriations — the Bruce Freeman Trail ($20K), Historical Survey ($41K), Affordable Accessory Apartments ($90K), Housing Authority ($50K) and Coventry Woods ($200K). The Selectmen voted 5-0 to recommend the Bruce Freeman Trail, Affordable Accessory Apartments and Coventry Woods appropriations, and postponed approval of the remaining two until additional information is received.
• OS&R Plan. The Board of Selectmen voted unanimously to approve the Open Space and Recreation Plan at their April 11 meeting.
• Resignations. The Selectmen voted to accept the resignation of Steve Lerner from the Hanscom Field Advisory Committee and Art Milliken from the Bike and Pedestrian Safety Advisory Committee.
• Wilkins Lane. The Selectmen accepted the laying out of Wilkins Lane, located in the Tall Pines subdivision, by a vote of 5-0. It has already been accepted by the Planning Board, Police and DPW and will now go to the Annual Town Meeting for a final vote.
