Special Town Meeting, 5/1/21

The Memorial Park parking lot was the venue once again for the Needham Special Town Meeting session held on May 1, 2021. The gathering pushed through an extensive agenda of articles, and still had time to mark the final Melick Foundation Award ceremony which honored the Attridges for their contributions to the town and the town meeting tradition. Due to the length of the meeting, we broke the event into two parts, and integrated the pre-recorded presentations available on the town website, to provide context to the articles being discussed. The Annual Town Meeting takes place on Monday, May 3rd.
