Residents interested in the growth, development, and care of public trails in town are encouraged to apply for a spot on the new Trails Committee. The selectmen decided to create this new five-member committee to have a group committed to maintaining and managing Southborough’s network of trails. The group could also have a role in the possible development of the proposed Boroughs Trail, which aims to link trails in the cluster of communities in the Southborough area that end with “borough.” To be considered for the committee, residents must complete a volunteer form at southboroughtown.com and submit it to the selectmen’s office. Appointments will be made in February, so applications are due as soon as possible. Contact Conservation Administrator Beth Rosenblum with questions at 508-485-0710, ext. 3024.
