- FUN FEATURES
Have you gotten your Cheshire Herald yet? If not, here is what you are missing:
*The Cheshire Public Library and Board of Education have, for years, utilized two gift accounts to purchase equipment and other resources outside of the departments' regular budgets. However, the way in which those accounts are used will be changing. Find out what had prompted the change and how town officials plan to move forward.
*A local resident is looking to have a zoning regulation changed in order to accommodate a second dwelling on his property. The upcoming decision on that request before the Planning and Zoning Commission will affect several people in town, however. Learn what the change could mean, and when it will be decided upon.
*The review of the Capital Budget continues to move forward, with both the Parks and Recreation and Human Services department submitting their requests. Read what projects they have planned, and how much they suspect them to cost.
*It's the last edition of July which means our monthly Blast from the Past special feature. This week we turn our attention to 1967 and how a small resolution inviting "non-whites" to town turned into a heated debate that garnered national attention.
*As always, our Around Town and Sports sections have all your local news and happenings, and don't miss the Summer Sports Highlights special section, out this week.
