Dr. Weed presents the Sowams Project to the Seekonk Select Board

Sowams Heritage Area Project Coordinator Dr. David Weed was introduced by Seekonk Town Planner to the Select Board on September 28, 2023. In his seven-minute presentation, Weed described what a National Heritage Area is and how it could help to address economic development, tourism, education and environmental efforts in the nine-town region of which Seekonk is a part. He invited Board members to attend one of two upcoming community conversations that will be held in mid-October at which a national consulting team will be present to talk about the project and to respond to questions.
