DEVENS — Members of the Devens Committee expressed frustration at the seemingly repetitive movements of the Joint Boards of Selectmen on an initiative for an overlay governance of the Devens Regional Enterprise Zone.
Reviewing what happened at last month’s JBOS meeting, committee member Elizabeth Witmer explained that Harvard decided not to bring the question of an overlay district to their town meeting. Ayer, she said, was still undecided about the issue.
“This all sounds very familiar from the February meeting,” said committee member Van Easton.
