What is Cable 22 and Verizon 42 ?

CCTV uses freelancers to guarantee coverage of Canton’s local government meetings. We cover the selectmen, health board, conservation, zoning, planning board, finance committee and others. You can watch those meetings on this station unedited and often live on the days they meet. (They have to meet in the Salah Room to be seen live.) And now, you can see meetings from town hall a few days later on the web where you can scroll to the part of the meeting of interest to you.

Zoning Board of June 26, 2014

Discussion on signs for the Luce School. But the board feels a changeable sign is ascetically unpleasing. Feels events for the school today can be communicated via social media. CAPT countered saying the sign is to remind parents that it is a half day. Superintendent says it is not on the Pleasant Street side but at the ‘‘drive way” going in to the school. ZBA worries that other schools will ask for such a sign. Mass Hospital School signage is done without permission from ZBA because it is a state school. The board then shifts its position a bit and says it is willing to put the matter on hold and put in a place that’s more internal and not visible by the neighborhood. Board wants to avoid the Stoughton, Randolph Honky Tonk look.

Selectmen of June 24, 2014

Selectmen were busy June 24th. Topics included discussions about residential access to Reservoir Pond (Pictured is Kevin Feeney of the ZBA and ADA). Also selectmen got a lot of feedback on residential street parking tickets for train access. (Due to the unexpected length of the meeting it is split in 2 video files on the web.) 


Zoning Board wants to discuss with the Planning Board affordable housing V. handicapped accessible for Grimes Crossing before making a ruling.
