Local real estate pros are invited to learn how to advise buyers about wetlands

You might know MVP at 2087 Main St. for laser tag, mini golf and great ice cream creations. Now, the owners have launched MVP’s Mediterranean Kitchen, with a full menu of Middle Eastern offerings including gyros, grape leaves, shakshuka and what one taster described as excellent baba ghanoush.

There are plenty of salads and vegetarian offerings as well as baklava and mahalabia. The full menu is now available. Find the selections here. Looking forward to trying the chicken soup.

Tree House Brewing is now offering pizza from noon to 7:30 p.m., Monday through Wednesday. As the crew ramps up, it will be available on more days. These are large, thin-crust pies, with a choice of cheese, pepperoni or Margherita and a vodka-sauce special. Hot honey is an optional add-on.

There was a nice char on the Margherita we tried. The tavern building also looks to be nearing completion.

The Town of Tewksbury’s Planning and Conservation Department will hold a seminar for local real estate agents, giving an overview of the Town’s Zoning and Wetland bylaws, and how they relate to how properties for sale or rent may be best marketed. On Wednesday, August 9 from 9:00 to 10:30 a.m. at Town Hall, presentations by the Town’s Planner and Conservation Agent will provide an overview of the applicability of the Zoning and Wetland bylaws to properties in Town. This will include information about building setbacks, uses, jurisdictional areas, and permitting procedures. Participants will also learn more about how to interpret wetland and zoning maps. RESERVE A SPOT HERE

Following the presentations, there will be an opportunity for participants to ask questions. The goal of this session is to better equip real estate agents working in Tewksbury with the knowledge to advise their clients about potential uses and reuses for their property as well as applicable limitations to expansion or building. This event is free, but space is limited and registration is required. Light refreshments will be served, courtesy of Leader Bank.

For questions about this event, please contact Alexandra Lowder, Community/Economic Development Planner, at or (978) 640-4370 Ext. 248.
