    Default Support the MassCentral Rail Trail

    From this morning's Wayland eNews electronic newsletter, a project that we should all be able to get behind:

    A Rail Trail through Wayland at Last? The League of Women Voters of Wayland will be hosting a forum Converting the Rail to a Trail on Thursday, October 22nd from 7:30-9:30pm at the Town Building. The proposed MassCentral Rail Trail is104+ miles of natural beauty and historical interest, connecting Boston through to Metro-West (including Wayland), to central Mass and finally to the Connecticut River Valley at Northampton.

    Craig Della Penna, Coordinator for the MassCentral Rail Trail Coalition (MCRT); Colleen Abrams, President Wachusett Greenway's ( MCRT); Dick Williamson, Sudbury representative to Bruce Freeman Rail Trail; and Larry Kiernan, Wayland representative to MassCentral Rail Trail Coalition will present the short and long term plans for the MCRT and share success stories of already completed phases in our neighboring towns to the north.

    Imagine, a safe, linear park for people of all ages and physical abilities to appreciate nature and our state's unique mix of cosmopolitan and rural communities. The MCRT will connect town centers, athletic fields, schools, conservation land, rivers, ponds and more. Walk, bike, skate or ski across town or across the state-without the noise or danger of sharing the path with cars and trucks. For more information about the forum, call Mary Antes at 508-358-2571.

    Default Yes to the Rail Trail!

    This Rail Trail would be a tremendous asset to the town. With all of our narrow, winding roads, an off-road place to walk and bike would be a welcome addition. I hope the town will support this effort as enthusiastically as it did ten years ago when we voted for this nearly unanimously at Town Meeting.
