The Bill Jolly Tree Fund

The Chesterfield community was shocked and saddened by the unexpected passing of Town resident Bill Jolly.  Bill served as Town Moderator, Chair of the Zoning Board of Appeals, member of the Conservation Commission, Cemetery Superintendent, and on many ad-hoc committees.  Bill's passing is a great loss to our community and to all who knew him.

Bill was a great outdoorsman and enjoyed hiking. Town resident Kessie Warlow-Harry is spearheading a campaign to plant trees in Bill's memory.  She has established a fund at Florence Savings bank, The Bill Jolly Tree Fund, to accept donations in Bill's memory and hopes to plant up to three trees in Town (more if funds allow).  Kessie is working with the Tree Warden and the Select Board to identify locations for the trees.

To donate to the fund, checks can be deposited directly into Florence Savings Bank's Bill Jolly Tree Fund - account number 198 262 3423.  Checks can also be mailed to Kester Warlow-Harry PO Box 553 Chesterfield, MA  01012 and the deposit will be made for you.


WiredWest Debt Exclusion Vote

The Debt Exclusion Vote will be held on Monday, September 21, 2015 from Noon to 8:00 PM in the Town Office Building.  This is the last step the Town needs to make in order to borrow funds to bring broadband to Chesterfield.

Community Development Statagy Meeting

Residents are invited to attend a meeting to revise the Town's Community Development Strategy on Monday, June 29th at 4:30 PM in the Select Board Office.  The Strategy is used in part to establish goals and priorities for various Town activities.  Examples of these municipal goal categories are Affordable Housing, Transportation, Land Use, Natural Resources, and Health and Human Services.

The Strategy is also a required document for the submission of the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Application.  In recent years, this grant has provided assistance to low-moderate income residents with housing rehab., elder services (both in-home chore assistance and medical checks), food pantry, and childcare assistance.

Community input and participation is a part of life in the hilltowns.  Come share your thoughts and ideas.
