WESTFORD — Here’s the Oct. 12 edition of Wednesday Whiteboard, where WestfordCAT highlights important dates and events during the week in and around Westford.

News and upcoming events around town 

The Town of Westford is looking for responses to its two surveys. One survey involves a new multi-family zoning requirement for MBTA and MBTA adjacent communities. The second survey involves a proposed change to the zoning bylaws that would allow for additional commercial zoning uses. Both surveys will close on Oct. 14.

Increased water restrictions have taken effect in Westford until further notice. Water restrictions have been downgraded from Stage 3 to Stage 2, however.

Bob Oliphant of the Westford Historical Society released the 60th episode of his Westford Wardsman podcast, where he shares the weekly Westford news with bonus information of Westford and her residents from over 100 years ago. Listen to the podcast below.
