25 Years Ago
July 7, 1988
No other document in Town Hall so drastically affects the short- and long-term quality of life as the master plan. It is, simply put, the physical and philosophical blueprint for the town. A current effort stems from a major renovation of the master plan that began in 1982 with the Master Plan Task Force, a project in which more than 100 Andover citizens helped to update policies that hadn’t been modernized since 1965.
David Tanklefski and Douglas Brown came out to show they’re true patriots by waving flags and joining in the celebration along with one of the biggest Fourth crowds ever to fill the streets of Andover. Peter Edgerly and Gordon Wade prepared to take off during the annual Horribles parade, a long-standing tradition in Andover. Kids of all sizes got to dress up and ride and romp through the streets.
