Yesterday was a banner day for the Westborough BPAC (Bike and Pedestrian Advisory Committee) with:
- a morning presentation to and approval of the Westborough Economic Development Committee to support the development of a proposed non-motorized multi-use trail along the old – and still somewhat intact – Boston to Worcester Air Line Trolley (BWALT) rail track bed
- an evening presentation and enthusiastic support of the Westborough Civic Club regarding the same trail
- a later evening presentation to and unanimous approval from the Westborough Planning Board to support the transfer of $22,000 from the Westborough Open Space Preservation Committee Reserve Account to pay for required survey work along the trail to accommodate needed easements and deed filings.
