Out of respect for the events unfolding in Boston and the surrounding communities, we will not be posting our usual Friday listings. Please be alert and keep all of those involved in these events in your thoughts.
"Arlington is not on [the lockdown] list and Town Offices are open. However, taxi service has been suspended in Town and the Red Cross Blood Drive planned today at Town Hall, noon - 5 p.m. has been cancelled.
The Town has increased its presence of officers on duty in Arlington to provide security, plus Arlington officers have been dispatched to Watertown to assist in the manhunt effort. Arlington officials continue to monitor the situation and will provide updates as warranted and recommend residents monitor local media and the mass.gov site for updates on this event. Continue to exercise caution and judgment as you plan any travel throughout the Greater Boston region today."
