Public Hearing -- Sept. 8th, 8.15 p.m., Andover Town Offices, 3rd Floor Conference Room, 36 Bartlet St., Andover MA 01810.  The Andover Conservation Commission will hold a public hearing as part of its regularly scheduled meeting.  We are requesting permission from the ConComm under the Mass. Wetlands Protection Act to complete the first phase of the Shawsheen River Restoration Project -- specifically, to remove Balmoral Dam and Marland Place Dam from the River.  Please attend the hearing to express your support for this important project, which will improve the environment and fisheries of Northeastern Massachusetts while reducing risks and hazards to life and property in Andover.  For more information, contact CER or the Town of Andover, Conservation Director.
