495 Metrowest Study
  

By MyFM's Rick Michaels - A commission to study development challenges experienced by municipalities along the Route 495 Metrowest corridor will meet this morning in Westboro with a deadline to make recommendations in a report to the legislature by the end of the month.  The commission was established by the Legislature in 2015 focusing on 35-communities with plans to develop a pilot program to address issues including transportation, industrial facilities and downtown redevelopment.  At the commission's meeting last month in Franklin, State Representative Brian Murray of Milford said the meeting was very informative.  Lawmakers heard from several speakers followed by a question and answer session.  This morning, Co-Chair, State Senator Karen Spilka of Ashland, along with the Assistant Secretary for Communities and Programs, will discuss telecommunications and sales tax collections in the region.  The Commission targeted the end of the fiscal year, June 30th, to come up with a report to present to the legislature.
