District 8 Councilor Grove Hosting Meeting on Cedar Woods/Swamp Thursday

FRAMINGHAM – District 8 City Councilor Judy Grove will hold a meeting for her district on Thursday, March 7 at 7 p.m.

The focus of the meeting will be on the Cedar Swamp conservation land in the district, said Grove.

The meeting will be held at Amazing Things Arts Center on Route 126.

“The main focus of the March 7th meeting will be the Cedar Swamp Conservation Land – what it is now and what it could be. This 18-acre parcel is bounded by Waverly, Mellen, Cypress and Cedar Streets,” said Grove.

“It is home to mature trees, vernal pools, streams, moss, ferns, wildflowers, birds including hawks, deer, wild turkeys, raccoons and rabbits. Unfortunately because if its proximity to the downtown it also has problems with litter and encampments,” said Councilor Grove.

City of Framingham Director of Conservation Rob McArthur will be present to discuss the work his Department has already done to improve this property and the work that lies ahead, said Grove

The meeting also review the Framingham Traffic Commission meeting last month, in which members of District 8 spoke.

“he Commission members listened as 12 District 8 residents expressed their concerns regarding safety, speeding and parking issue. The Commission voted to hire a Consultant to conduct a Traffic and Safety Study,” said Grove.
