- The Board of Selectmen meet tonight at 7 p.m. in the Toomey Room at Town Hall. One topic sure to drum up more impassioned conversation for the evening is an update from Planning Director Karen Nelson on zoning issues pertaining to medical marijuana and the town-imposed moratorium on allowing dispensaries in Danvers. Town officials are working toward establishing some local guidelines and permitting in addition to the rules and regulations finally released by state health officials.
- Selectmen are also slated to set a deadline to receive applications for the beer and wine restaurant license that is now available. The Londis gave their license back to the town recently during the change in ownership of the roast beef shop.
- Brian Kelly apparently wants to sell Maseratis at his old Volkswagen dealership on Route 114 while Ira Automotive is looking to sell Porsches. Kelly will be before the board for a Class 1 dealer's license at 151 Andover St. (his Volkswagen dealership has moved down the road). A hearing on a Class 1 license for Ira Porsche at 97C Andover St. was rescheduled, however, until Oct. 1.
- In other news, the board has received a request to Pink Up the Town in October for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The ask is to tie pink ribbons up in the downtown and surrounding area. Connors Farm is seeking a common victualler's license and the board will hear a progress update from the Danvers Housing Trust in regard to 55 Coolidge Rd.
- The American Red Cross and the Danvers library are teaming up Wednesday to hold a blood drive. The drive will be 2-7 p.m. in the Gordon Room at the library.
