Another busy week for Bedford boards and committees with interesting agendas posted for the Selectmen, the Planning Board, the School Committee and the Conservation Commission.

At their meeting on Monday, February 11, the Selectmen will review and approve the warrant for Bedford’s Town Election on March 9, along with the final Warrant articles for Annual Town Meeting Warrant which begins March 25.

Tuesday’s Planning Board agenda will include consideration of a by-law change to allow restaurants over 5,000 square feet by special permit.  The Board will consider options following a decision by Massachusetts Attorney General to not approve the rezoning of Navy hangar site, Hartwell Road as voted at last summer’s Special Town Meeting.

The Board will review communication from the Massachusetts Department of Housing and Community Development concerning two industrial sites on Crosby Drive at the Village at Bedford Woods that are being considered for an Expedited Permitting designation.

Also on Tuesday, the School Committee will consider a policy on Audio/Video Recordings at meetings, complete a two-year student transportation contract, and hear a presentation on the English Language Education program.

On Wednesday the Conservation Commission will hear proposals from two Eagle Scouts. They will also hold an open discussion on Wetlands enforcement.
