Finally, take a moment to help out the Zoning Bylaw Committee by providing input regarding retail marijuana use in Tewksbury. You can fill out the survey here. All responses are anonymous. The results from this survey will be compiled and reviewed by the Committee to determine if there is significant interest in revisiting retail marijuana uses.
Local organizations that want their events listed are invited to contact Christine Chesbrough via the Connected Facebook group or send their info to firstname.lastname@example.org.
