Please disregard any private signs in the vicinity of Cedar Street indicating that the street is (or will be) closed.  This matter was recently in litigation. The court recently ruled that Cedar Street is a public way and therefore will remain open for public travel.  Anyone having questions or concerns regarding this matter should contact the Board of Selectmen’s Office.  Thank you.
