Westford’s October 17 Special Town Meeting: Your vote can shape the future!

Westford Climate Action encourages voters to attend Special Town Meeting on Monday, October 17 at 7:00 p.m. in the Westford Academy gym, 30 Patten Road, Westford, MA 01886

Voters at the Meeting will be voting on several articles that reflect the town’s commitment to promote clean energy and reduce fossil fuel use. Your presence and support can make these sustainable plans reality.

Warrant Article 5 would replace the old Center fire station with a new community building at 51 Main Street. The new design is fossil-fuel free. There will be a backup natural gas generator.

Article 6 would expand and renovate the J.V. Fletcher Library. The Library Building Expansion Project designers understand and accept the Annual Town Meeting Resolution for net-zero and sustainability, and the goals for the Expansion Project are to be energy efficient, all electric and net-zero ready.

In addition, Article 4  authorizes the purchase of hybrid and full-electric vehicles. 

For details on Special Town Meeting and the warrant, go to westfordma.gov/891.

Construction funding for the two buildings will be voted on both at this Town Meeting AND on Westford’s local ballot on Tuesday, November 8. Come and learn more about both at this Town Meeting.
