Seizing the moment, the trustees of the Harvard Municipal Affordable Housing Trust voted unanimously Monday night to offer Devens Village Green a subsidy to defray some of its cost of adding 10 low-income apartments to its proposed housing project on Grant Road.

Harvard’s selectmen agreed Monday night to join Ayer and Shirley in a Super Town Meeting June 8 to decide the fate of four zoning changes proposed for Devens by MassDevelopment, the state agency responsible for developing and governing the former army base.

At a planning meeting that started late in the afternoon and ended with a dinner sent by Chef Paul, the Board of Selectmen discussed a wide range of goals members would like to accomplish in the coming year.

Despite the rain that fell earlier this week, Harvard is having an unusually dry spring this year. Farmers and firefighters alike have been noticing the lack of precipitation, and some are starting to wonder: How bad is it going to get?

The majority of Harvard parents are not particularly worried about risky behavior such as drug or alcohol use among teens, to judge by the attendance at last week’s public meeting on results from the Youth Risk Behavior Survey.
