How Trails are Built
As a nonprofit organization without a Town budget, the Northborough Trails Committee
has relied on conservation grants and private donations in the past. If you’d like to make a
contribution please send your donation to the Northborough Trails Fund at the Town Planner’s
Office 63 Main St. Northborough, Ma. 01532. Contributors to this fund may claim their contributions
as tax deductible from their annual taxes.
In 2006 for the first time we applied for money from the
Community Preservation Act, and at the April Town Meeting our request
for $3,100.00 was approved. We have used that money to purchase a gas powered
weed/brush cutter for trail maintenance, as well
as other hand tools for trail development and maintenance, signs, printed
pamphlets for the Edmund Hill Woods Interactive Trail system, and materials
for boardwalks through the wetland areas of new trails.
The NTC has also received C.P.A. funding during the years 2007, 2008 and 2009.
Please see the NTC Annual Reports for details.
The NTC appreciates your continued support,
so please help our funding requests through your vote at Town Meeting.
If you have any questions regarding NTC funding or donations please
contact the Town Planner's Office at the Town Hall, 508-393-5019.
