Submitted by Bedford Youth and Family Services

It’s no surprise to anyone that technology is becoming increasingly pervasive in our lives.

Letter to the Editor, July 24, 2018: Residents Share Information for Special Town Meeting on July 30

By Chris and Jennifer Boles

Dear Neighbors,

We live on Concord Road, about 3/4 mile from the Bedford NWIRP (Naval Weapons Industrial Reserve Plant) on Hartwell Road. We are hoping you will take some time this week to learn about a couple of issues that could have a permanent impact on Bedford, and especially some of the neighborhoods and streets within a mile or two of the North Hanscom Airfield (located just off Hartwell Road, across the street from Hartwell Hill and one of The Edge Sports Center’s playing fields).

Please consider the possibilities, then we hope you will join us at the Special Town Meeting on Monday, July 30, 7:30 pm at Bedford High School, and vote your choices.
