Warrant Meetings

This year the LWV-Needham is hosting two separate Warrant Meetings in preparation for the 2017 Annual Town Meeting. We recommend that Town Meeting Members attend both events.

Monday, April 24, 7:30 p.m.
Center at the Heights

This meeting will be the traditional Warrant Meetings and will focus on the Warrant articles not covered in the April 13 meeting (see below). This meeting is open to the public and Town Meeting Members are strongly encouraged to attend.

Click here for the 2017 Annual Town Meeting Warrant. All elected Town Meeting Members should have received their Warrant in the mail on Friday or Saturday (Monday at the latest). The May 8 Special Town Meeting Warrant is also including in that mailing.

Thursday, April 13, 7:30 p.m.
Broadmeadow School

This meeting was held in conjunction with the Planning Board and presented information on the eight proposed zoning bylaw amendments resulting from the Large House Review Study. There will not likely be enough time to cover this material at the April 24 Warrant Meetings and we encourage Town Meeting Members to watch The Needham Channel's video of this meeting.

Annual Town Meeting starts on Monday, May 1, 7:30 p.m. at Powers Hall, Needham Town Hall.

Needham Town Election Results
