Dear Town Meeting Members,

In accordance with the provisions of Section 4, Chapter 202, Acts of 1932, as amended, Town Meeting Members are hereby notified that the 2018 October Special Town Meeting, will be held in the Wellesley Middle School Auditorium, 50 Kingsbury Street, beginning on Tuesday October 2, 2018 at 7:00 pm.  Please reserve  Wednesday October 3rd, 2018 for additional time if needed. 

The Board of Selectmen approved the warrant in its meeting last evening. The warrant for the Special Town Meeting has been posted on the website, at Town Hall and Wellesley Square.  

At this Special Town Meeting, the School Committee and the Board of Selectmen will ask for $2.5 million, to be expended under the direction of the School Building Committee and the Permanent Building Committee, for feasibility and schematic design for the Hardy/Upham elementary school project. The Town intends to execute this project in partnership with the Massachusetts School Building Authority.

Because of the timely nature of this funding request, the Advisory Committee will kick off its 2018-19 schedule early to begin its deliberations. The School Committee and Board of Selectmen will present to Advisory TONIGHT, August 22nd on Article 2 at 7:30 p.m. in the Juliani Room, Town Hall. The meeting will be broadcast live by Wellesley Media.

Other critical Advisory dates are as follows:
