Back to the Drawing Board for Scenic Road Ordinance
Take a look at what's happening in Attleboro and Seekonk.
1. A proposal for preservation and protection of Attleboro's "scenic roads" was struck from the council docket Tuesday night by an 11-0 vote. Proponents of the Scenic Road Ordinance had requested the action after a negative recommendation from the Planning Board meant the council could vote to reject the measure, which is more than a decade in the making. The proponents can now produce a new proposal that can again go through the government approval pipeline.
2. Whether you're a Republican, a Democrat, a Communist or just not sure, you're hopefully watching the first presidential debate between incumbent Barack Obama and challenger Mitt Romney.

The chat will begin at 8:30 p.m. The debate is scheduled to start at 9 p.m.
3. Attleboro City Councilor Jay DiLisio will be holding constituent office hours from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Mediterranean Grill. Councilor Richard Conti will also hold office hours at 5 p.m. at 16 County St.
5. The National Weather Service's forecast calls for a 30 percent chance of rain, cloudy skies and a high near 69. At night, there is a 40 percent chance of rain along with cloudy skies and a low near 58.
