The applicant has modified the four rear façades of the townhomes parallel to Pleasant Street and the Bank of America property facing Market Square.  The Board of Architectural Review is scheduled to discuss the revised elevations at a work session November 1, 2019.  A summation of that discussion will be provided to Town Council thereafter.
