An oversight committee for the upcoming Bedford Streetscape project has been created with a handful of city officials joining appointees by Mayor Jasiel Correia II and City Council President Cliff Ponte.
The Bedford Streetscape Oversight Committee consists of City Planner Bill Roth, City Engineer JR Frey, and City Councilors Steven Camara and Leo Pelletier.
Correia nominated business people Jerry Donovan from Eagle Event Center, Charlie Merrow from Merrow Manufacturing, and Merrill Cordeiro from Cordeiro Insurance.
Ponte nominated Michael Benevides from Portugalia Marketplace, Pam Sabre Auto, and attorney Arthur Frank.
The City Council had previously asked the Administration to create an oversight committee for the East Main and Purchase Streetscape projects, but one never materialized.
