Amid the current discussions of traffic in Westford, we thought it would be helpful to make a report from the League’s Forum on traffic in Westford, written in January 2003. Comparing the solutions proposed then, to the problems and solutions being proposed following the most recent NMCOG traffic study in town highlights the continued changes to traffic patterns in town. If you are interested in the current traffic and parking issues in town, reading this report gives you additional history and insight into the challenges Westford faces dealing with increased traffic and development. Download and read the report here.
The Westford LWV’s latest project has been to put together a guide for any town residents who are considering running for local office. This guide will be available as a printed booklet at Town Hall and the J.V. Fletcher Library, but it is also available online. This guide is a great way to learn more about the process of running for local office, and draws on the experiences and wisdom of many League members and residents who have gone through the process.
