An exciting step was made this month in the prospects of completing the Bourne Rail Trail. Following the overwhelming success of TrailFest, our board members attended Bourne's Community Preservation Committee meeting. During this meeting, the CPC members voted unanimously in support of a $50,000 funding request to support the design and engineering of the first phase of the Bourne Rail Trail!
The funding request will now be included on the warrant of the Town of Bourne Special Town Meeting that is scheduled for Monday, October 1st. In order for the funding to be made available to the project, voters must approve the funding request on October 1, 2018.
We are thrilled by this step forward and ask all BRT supporters to mark their calendars and plan to attend the Special Town Meeting to support the next phase of the BRT's development. The Bourne Rail Trail is making exciting progress and we have our community of supporters to thank for advocating for the BRT!
