If there are only two things you can do to help with the Rec Center Campaign this year, attending Westford’s Strategic Planning Retreat should be one of them (the other being to attend special Town Meeting in the fall).  This year’s Strategic Planning Retreat will be held at Kimball Farm on June 16, 2016 at 5:30 PM.  The focus of this year’s retreat is to get feedback on several large capital projects that are in the works or have been proposed.  One of those proposed projects is a recreation center for Westford.  This is a perfect opportunity for residents to show their support for improving recreation in Westford.  We had a great turn out during the development of the recreation master plan.  That interest has in turn provided the impetus for conducting a feasibility study for a rec center in Westford.  Please come and show your support for a rec center by attending the planning retreat.   Free food and ice cream are an added bonus!  Registration is free.
