The petitioners are seeking to be granted joint or identical locations for and permission to construct and maintain a line of poles and their respective wires and cables to be placed thereon, together with such sustaining and protecting fixtures as may deem necessary, on the southerly side of North Blandford Road. Pursuant to Governor Baker’s order suspending certain provisions of the Open Meeting Law, G.L.C. 30A, §18, and the Governor’s order imposing strict limitation on the number of people that may gather in one place, this hearing will be conducted via remote participation to the greatest extent possible. Members of the public who wish to listen to the meeting may do so by dialing-in: (425) 436-6311; Access Code: 248324#. No in-person attendance of members of the public will be permitted. Every effort will be made to ensure that the public can adequately access the proceedings in real time, via technological means. In the event that we are unable to do so, despite best efforts, we will post on the Blandford website a transcript or other comprehensive record of proceedings as soon as possible after the meeting.
