April 26, 2017 – Please Attend continued Conservation Commission hearing re: Gervais VW

Please support the Rail Trail in Lowell

This meeting is now to be continued on April 26th, 2017.

Gervais VW purchased the BFRT ROW just north of Industrial Ave (and Crosspoint) from PanAm Railways.  Gervais wants to expand parking onto the ROW.  There may be a way for the BFRT to exist side-by-side with the additional parking on Gervais land or the abutter on the west side of the ROW, AVCARB.  Regardless in order to keep the ROW intact and the possibility of the BFRT connecting with the Concord River Greenway in Lowell we need rail trail supporters to attend the Conservation Commission meeting in Lowell.

When:  7:00 pm Wednesday April 26, 2017
Where:  Lowell City Hall, Council Chambers 375 Merrimack Street Lowell, MA 01852
RSVP:   None needed
