Thursday, April 17, 6:30 – 8:30 PM, Brooklawn Park Community Center, 1997 Acushnet Avenue, New Bedford
Design plans will be available to view at 6 PM. Comments can also be sent to the Chief Engineer, and they must be postmarked within 10 business days of the Public Hearing. Letters can be submitted at the hearing or mailed as follows:
