  • Selectman Richard Dalton at the 11/9/17 Recreational Path Committee meeting made 3 key comments regarding the recent meeting he attended with Lynnfield and MA DOT officials on the Wakefield-Lynnfield Rail Trail Project:

1. Funding for 100 percent of the updated construction cost will be met by Federal and State sources. Funding may also be available earlier than the planned 2020/2021 date.

2. Screening for abutters is covered in the cost of construction. The State is very amenable to requests from each abutter.
3. The environmental parameters for Reedy Meadow apparently do not pose a problem using a raised boardwalk to cross the meadow.

Hear Lynnfield Resident and abutter to the proposed Rail Trail ,Tom Grilk, talk about why he welcomes the Rail Trail behind his backyard.
