The 191st General Court of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts


Whereas, The deferred operation of this act would tend to defeat its purpose, which is forthwith to designate a certain portion of road in the West Natick section of the town of Natick as the Silvano Anthony Melchiorri Bridge, therefore it is hereby declared to be an emergency law, necessary for the immediate preservation of the public convenience.

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court assembled, and by the authority of the same as follows:

SECTION 1. The portion of Speen street south of route 135 and north of Mill street and Pond street in the West Natick section of the town of Natick, including the Speen Street culvert Beaver Brook Dam at Fisk Pond under the care and control of the department of conservation and recreation, shall be designated and known as the Silvano Anthony Melchiorri Bridge, in memory of Silvano Anthony Melchiorri, to honor his contributions as a veteran, firefighter, town meeting member, developer, musician and pillar of the town of Natick. The department of conservation and recreation shall erect and maintain a suitable marker bearing this designation in compliance with the standards of the department.

SECTION 2. Chapter 411 of the acts of 2008 is hereby amended by inserting after the words “John Dean”, the following word:- Memorial.
