Warshawsky explained that the <br /> Subcommittee had determined there was not enough support from residents for a town- <br /> wide project. He noted that pilot projects have lead to successful programs in other <br /> communities and this would enable the Town to demonstrate that the undergrounding of <br /> • utilities could be achieved. It is a positive way to start the program.
