The Hanover Planning Board met June 5, for their monthly meeting. There was a report by the Code Enforcement Officer, Joelle Cory Whitman, about ongoing violations, mostly in the Howard Pond area. The Board reviewed the by-laws for possible changes that might be needed. The document is very old and some of the by-laws are not especially pertinent.
The Gardner Roberts Memorial Library Children’s Garden was planted June 6. The ground had been tilled and the soil worked by the planters. It is a nice looking corner right in the center of Hanover.
