ROCKPORT — The Rockport Select Board will be holding a special meeting on Thursday evening March 14, at 7 p.m., in the Geoffrey C. Parker Meeting Room at the Rockport Opera House. The meeting will be live streamed.

The purpose of the meeting is to consider the timing of sending the Rockport Public Library project out to bid given the desire by some community members to develop an alternate parking plan for the project. Public comment will be accepted at the meeting.  

Discussion of the pros and cons of individual parking plans will not occur at this meeting, but will occur at a later meeting with public comment accepted at that time. A meeting for March 25 has been scheduled for this topic, but it is possible that an additional meeting could occur prior to that date.
