SHIRLEY — “The general consensus last time was that there’s support” for the idea, Harvard Selectman Leo Blair said.
He was speaking at the most recent of two Joint Board of Selectmen meetings devoted to discussion of his idea to form a collective government for the Devens Redevelopment Enterprise Zone. The area is now operated by MassDevelopment, the state agency charged with redeveloping and governing the former military base until 2033.
The challenge going forward would be to come up with a viable plan and ask voters to endorse it, Blair said. That is, after a Town Meeting straw poll determines it has a chance.
