Shrewsbury – Concerned residents who want to remind motorists to drive cautiously in one Shrewsbury neighborhood will get their way after the town's Board of Selectmen voted unanimously to approve the installation of caution signs in the area.
Residents in the neighborhood known as Prospect Hill, requested signs that say “Caution Children” to be placed around the subdivision's streets, which include Hawthorne Road, Faulkner Road, Hemingway Street and Adams Road. Highway Superintendent John Knipe, Town Engineer Jack Perreault and Police Chief James Hester all supported installing the signs.
The measure was approved at the selectmen's July 26 meeting.
In other business, the board also approved a license for the annual family festival sponsored by St. Mary's Catholic Church, which will be held this year on the weekend of Sept. 16 through 18. The parish also received approval for a one-day wine and malt beverages license for the event.
