Hampstead residents will have a second opportunity tonight to register their distress over a planned extension of Boxwood Drive that many say would turn the residential street into a high-speed throughway. As part of a general public hearing on Hampstead's reworked comprehensive plan, residents will plead their case to a panel of county and town officials. The Boxwood extension, an approved and funded project, hadn't caused many ripples in Hampstead before a Town Council meeting Feb. 12, when about 30 residents showed up with stories of how their children would be in danger traversing the extended road.

Hampstead is asking for residents' continued cooperation during the cleanup of this week's snowstorm. Because of the forecast of heavy rain for the weekend, town officials are asking residents to help by shoveling snow away from storm drains and fire hydrants, so melting snow and rain can run off properly and prevent icing conditions when temperatures drop at night. Officials also remind residents that shoveling, plowing and putting snow in the street with snow blowers slow snow clearing.
