street_list_coverWhat do you give the Wakefield resident who has everything?

The perfect, outside-the-box Christmas gift idea might just be something available from the unlikeliest of shopping venues – Town Hall.

The 2016 Town of Wakefield Annual Street List is available while supplies last at the Town Clerk’s Office for the low price of $10.

The front cover of this handsome, spiral bound volume features a full-color image of South Reading Common circa 1834 by Wakefield artist Franklin Poole. Inside the cover, local historian Nancy Bertrand provides some historical background on Poole’s painting as well as biographical notes on the artist himself.

The Wakefield Street List provides a listing of all Wakefield residents age 17 and older, arranged by street address within each voting precinct. It also lists the occupations of all residents, making it a perfect gift for those who like to stay informed about their neighbors but don’t wish to intrude upon their safe space.

street_list_readerNot sure what street someone lives on? No problem. There’s a handy alphabetical list in the back with names and corresponding street addresses.

You can also find out who’s registered to vote and who isn’t, information that can come in handy for political discussions or if you decide to run for office. The list of polling places for each precinct is useful when election time rolls around, along with a handy alphabetical cross reference of street names and their precincts.

The Street List provides some helpful demographic information on the number of people living in Wakefield based on the 2015 Town Census (24,431) and the 2010 Federal Census (24,932). The book also features a handy list of current elected and appointed officials from US Congress to Fence Viewers, along with the year that their terms expire. Also listed are the heads of all Town departments, scannerfrom the Chief of Police to the Electrical Inspector. There is also a list of telephone numbers for every town department.

For those with Police and Fire scanners, the Street List has a complete listing of all Fire Alarm Boxes including their numbers and locations.

The Street List also features a full-page, pull-out street map of Wakefield with a handy key for locating streets on the map.

The 2016 Wakefield Street List is the gift that keeps on giving throughout the year. Appropriate for a man or a woman, and one size fits all.

Pick up a copy of the Wakefield Street List today for that hard-to-buy-for Wakefield resident or as a holiday gift to yourself!
