The City of Framingham is seeking volunteers for its new Bicycle, Pedestrian and Trails Committee.

Applicants must live in Framingham, complete conflict-of-interest training, and commit to attending scheduled monthly meetings. There will be seven members – four appointed by the mayor and one each by the Disability Commission, Parks & Recreation Commission, and Youth Council. More info: Bicycle, Pedestrian and Trails Committee.

Nobscot Scout Reservation (off Edgell Road/Nobscot Road in both Framingham and Sudbury) is planning a landscape project for the entrance to the property just over the Framingham line.

The project plans to “enhance the drive-by curb appeal of the entranceway, establish clarity for where visitors should go [via] thoughtful landscaping and signage” and do several other landscaping work including adding native flowering plants and shrubs as well as stone benches.

Although owned by the Scouts, the public also uses reservation trails. The town of Sudbury and the Sudbury Valley Trustees purchased a conservation restriction on the Sudbury portion of the property, so that land cannot be developed.

Anyone who might like to donate to the $9,950 project or just learn more about it can head to https://donations.scouting.org/#/council/251/appeal/5330 for more info. For a trail map and other info, see theSudbury Valley Trustees website.
