Rail trail public meeting scheduled

Residents interested in learning more about a proposed recreational rail trail in town are invited to a public information session this Tuesday at 7 p.m. at the public library. The meeting is being held by the Alternative Transportation Committee of Norton, which was recently appointed by selectmen to help the town pursue the creation of the rail trail. At the session, the committee will provide an update on the status of the project. Members of the public are invited to offer their feedback. “We hope to see everyone there with ideas, concerns, and questions, and we hope to move the project along,” Sandra Ollerhead, the committee chairwoman, said in an interview. The meeting was originally scheduled for Jan. 21 but postponed because of weather. For more information, e-mail, or go to
