This week there are three meetings taking place in Cavendish, which residents should be aware of:
Oct. 22 (Monday) 6:30 pm Town Office VT Trans Meeting on Whitesville Bridge (by Williams Store on Route 131). A scoping report indicates that the bridge would be closed for three months while it is replaced. Traffic would be detoured to 106 to 10 to 103 if heading west on 131 and reverse when heading east. However, as we saw after Irene, when route 131 was closed because of the Cavendish Canyon, many ignored the signs and used the “local traffic only” routes. While High Street would not be impacted this time, the following roads could be adversely impacted: East Road, Tarbell Hill, Brook, Chubb Hill and Center Roads. This bridge is part of the State Bridge Program and therefore will not require Town funding. If you have concerns about a bridge closure, please attend this meeting. FMI: 22607292
Oct. 24 (Wednesday) Candidates Forum, 6 PM at CTES
CCCA is sponsoring a forum for local candidates to appear, answer questions from the floor and give their views on issues important to the local voters. Attending will be Mark Huntley and Scott Ranney, who are running for State Representative and Alice Nitka, Dick McCormack and Dick Tracy who are running for State Senator. People are encouraged to submit questions to Will Hunter firstname.lastname@example.org in advance, as he is moderating the forum. This event will be taped by LPC-TV. www.lpctv.org
Oct. 25 (Thursday) Neighborhood Watch, 6 pm at the Proctorsville Fire Dept.
In view of the various break ins this year, a meeting regarding a Cavendish Neighborhood Watch has been scheduled with a representative from the Rockingham Barracks. He will be talking about ways to prevent break-ins and how to go about establishing a neighborhood watch. Please contact Jackie Blanchard, 226-7686 and let her know if you will be attending as the trooper wants to make sure he brings sufficient materials. All are welcome to attend.
