Bourne Selectmen Vote Unanimously in Support of Bourne Rail Trail

April 13, 2017

Dear Friends, 

On Tuesday evening the Bourne Board of Selectmen voted unanimously to move forward with the continued planning of the Bourne Rail Trail/Shining Sea Extension. This is an important step as it allows the Cape Cod Commission to move forward with the next phase of planning and design for the project. 

The Friends would like to extend our thanks to the persistent, dedicated community members who have given their time and energy to the project. There are a lot of you out there and we would not be where we are today without your commitment. We still have a long way to go and many issues to address, but It’s truly remarkable how far we have come in one year. 

The Friends would also like to acknowledge the Selectmen in Bourne who have recognized the tremendous opportunity presented by the Bourne Rail Trail and are standing up for the people, economy, and quality of life on the Upper Cape. 

Thank you for your continued support and we will be in touch soon regarding next steps. It’s shaping up to be a fun summer!  

-Friends of the Bourne Rail Trail
