Letter to the Editor: Save the Trail Booth at Bedford Day Brings Public Awareness

~Submitted by Daria Miano

Booth organizers report a fantastic turnout at Bedford Day where they rallied support for the preservation of the Reformatory Branch trail. Many residents had been unaware that the issue of whether to pave the Reformatory Branch trail from Railroad Avenue past Concord Rd was up for a vote again after having been struck down at the spring Town Meeting. Booth visitors’ reactions ranged from surprise to concern and even anger after learning that their lawful vote had not been honored.

More information on this issue can be found at https://savereformatorytrail.org/

The re-vote will happen at the Special Town Meeting scheduled for November 14 at the Bedford High School.

The article to be defeated authorizes the Town to exercise eminent domain to acquire privately owned land for the purposes of clearing trees and paving the path.
