Don't Fortget to Vote for Easements, Funding for Assabet River Rail Trail Extension at Maynard Town Meeting

posted on

Don't forget to attend Town Meeting in Maynard tonight (5/18/15) at 7:00 p.m. in the Fowler School Auditorium at 3 Tiger Drive to vote for funding and the easements necessary to extend the Assabet River Rail Trail through Maynard to the South Acton Commuter Rail station. This will help improve walking and biking connectivity, improve access to downtown Maynard, encourage economic development, and connect bicyclists to the Commuter Rail.

Article 2 of the Special Town Meeting is "To see if the Town will vote to appropriate from certified free cash the sum of $120,000.00 for the purchase of easements or real property interests for purposes of establishing, constructing, operating, maintaining, repairing and using a multi-use rail trail/bicycle path along, across, or abutting the former Boston & Maine Railroad Maynard Branch right-of-way and including appraisals, recordings, related engineering or legal costs."

Your vote counts, so please attend and help shape a well-connected and sustainable Maynard!
