Selectmen to Meet Historical Commission Wednesday Night

Items on the agenda include discussion of creating a historic district and perhaps talks on the demolition delay of Cap'n Jack's Inn


Selectmen are scheduled to meet with the Historical Commission tonight, Wednesday, as part of a full agenda.

Agenda items includem at 8 pm, an update on the Historical Commission as well as the commission's interest in establishing a historic district or districts in town.

Historical Commission member Sylvia Belkin said it is her understanding that selectmen want to talk to the commission tonight about the demolition delay the members put in place in November.

The delay has five months remaining of its original nine months.

The delay, backed by a town by-law, prevents the developers from tearing down the three Cap'n Jack buildings until Aug. 1, unless an agreement is struck between the developers and the commission. 

Developers Bruce Paradise and Barry Turkanis have bought the Cap'n Jack's Inn property for $3.5 million.

In other board business, at 7 pm, selectmen have scheduled an executive session: to investigate charges or criminal misconduct or to discuss the filing of criminal complaints.

Additionally, board members are scheduled to meet and interview the final candidate of three finalists for the open town administrator position. 

They are slated to meet Thomas Younger of Belmont, the acting town administrator in Ipswich, at 7:15 pm.
