picture2nd Saturday Stroll (Oct 10) at 10:30 at Powisset Farm

Please join us for guided walk of the back fields at Powisset Farm, sponsored by the Dover Open Space Committee (OSC). Meet at the Trustees’ Noanet parking lot on Powisset Street just past the Farm at 10:30 am on Saturday, October 10th. We will walk through the mown hay fields at the back of the Trustees’ Powisset Farm and into the abutting 32 acres of Dover Town-owned woodland. We will introduce walkers to the trail connection to the Trustees’ Rocky Woods (Medfield).

Walks will not be too strenuous but will be over uneven and possibly wet ground so wear appropriate footwear and bring walking sticks, binoculars and cameras. Sorry, farm animals so no dogs allowed. We will stroll in misty rain to shine.

If you have questions, contact us at amoot@doverma.org

 dunkinProposed Dunkin Donuts at 14 Dedham Street

The Town has received a proposal from local business owners to operate a Dunkin Donuts franchise in the space most recently occupied by Taffy Café. At its meeting of June 1, 2015, the Planning Board voted to require a full site plan review of the proposal. The full site plan review began Monday, June 15, at which time the Planning Board asked for a complete site plan. The site plan was not ready to be discussed at the June 29 Planning Board meeting. The site plan has not yet been submitted so the proposed Dunkin Donuts will not be on the agenda at the July 13 meeting. Once a site plan has been submitted, the date of the meeting at which it will be discussed will be posted here.  Information about this proposal is posted here.
