Last night the Community Preservation Committee voted 5-2 to accept the joint application made by the School Committee and Park & Rec for funding toward the synthetic turf field at WHS. The CPC and especially those who voted for it are to be commended for the questions they asked to help arrive at their decision. Special thanks to Barb Fletcher and Louis Jurist from the School Committee and Nancy Mcshea Director of the Park&Rec Dept for helping me get those questions answered. All major youth sports programs were represented at the meeting which also helped alot. Those groups will get the biggest benefit from the effort. This is an important step in helping to get this project completed. Lots more work to be done to make it a reality but we're on our way.

thank you,
