Marlborough designated a Purple Heart City
By Joan F. Simoneau, Community Reporter
Marlborough – The City of Marlborough has been designated a Purple Heart City by a unanimous vote taken by councilors at the Oct. 21 council meeting. Councilor Richard Jenkins introduced the proclamation at the request of city resident Leo Agnew, state commander for Military Order of the Purple Heart.
The city joins many communities in Massachusetts “honoring the service and sacrifice of our nation’s men and women in uniform that were wounded or killed by the enemy while serving to protect the freedom enjoyed by all Americans.”
Jenkins emphasized this action would express city residents’ admiration and utmost gratitude for those who served in the Armed Forces and gave their lives for the freedom of all.
In other business, a public hearing was held to review the application for a special permit submitted by Luiza DeMoura, proprietor of Jump in with Us, Inc., to develop an inflatable playground for children at 19 Brigham St. The site plan for the enterprise which will provide a place for birthday parties, school field trips, wall climbing and other forms of entertainment, has been reviewed by the Building Department and meets all requirements of the building code. Necessary variances have been granted by the city’s Zoning Board of Appeals.
The Council voted to refer the permit application to the Urban Affairs Committee for study and recommendation to the full council.
