    “How Westford Works” Published

    Posted on Mar 26 2018

    The League of Women Voters of Westford is excited to announce their latest publication, “How Westford Works.”   This document describes all aspects of town government, and is a great way to get to know how your town works. You can find it at League events (such as the upcoming Candidates’ Night on April 26) or online.  It will also be made available at Town Hall and the Library.

    The League would like to thank the committee that started with the idea for this document last year and worked to locate and collect all of the information about the Town of Westford in one place. We hope this will be an invaluable resource for residents both new and old.

    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.
