FRAMINGHAM – Mayor Charlie Sisitsky has nominated William Fadden to the newly-created Framingham Bicycle, Pedestrian, & Trails Committee.
If approved by the 11-member Framingham City Council at its Tuesday, December 6 meeting, McFadden will join District 5 resident Ben Gustafson and District 2 resident Laura Beck as member of the Committee, according to City documents.
A District 1 resident, Fadden wrote in his September 26 application he brings “Appalachian Mountain Club and on-the-job training for trail design, construction and maintenance. Routed the Bay Circuit Trail through Marlborough, Framingham, and Sudbury and recently through Lincoln, Weston and Wayland. Land Stewardship assistance to Sudbury Valley Trustees and Conservation Commission.”
Fadden said he is the “Alternate Framingham representative on the Sudbury, Assabet and Concord (SUASCO) Wild and Scenic Rivers Stewardship Council.”
The Committee is organized to work to improve bicycling and pedestrian conditions in the City of Framingham. It will strive to create a comprehensive view of bicycle and pedestrian-related activities in the city. Hence, the Committee will make it possible for all city groups and departments to coordinate activities that involve or affect cycling and walking in Framingham.
The Mayor still has one more appointment to the Committee.
Membership on the 7-person Committee includes:
- One member selected by the Disability Commission (three years);
- One member selected by the Parks and Recreation Commission (two years);
- One member selected by the Youth Council (one year) and;
- Four members appointed by the Mayor (1-three years, 2- two years, and 1- one year).
It is unclear if the Parks & Recreation Commission, the Disability Commission, and the 13-member Youth Council has selected a Committee member
