WESTFORD — The following release was shared with WestfordCAT from the office of Rep. James Arciero for publication and distribution.

State Representative James Arciero is pleased to announce the $100,000 he secured for the Nabnasset Elementary School in this year’s Fiscal Year 24 State Budget.  

The $100,000 funding will go towards the design and development of a new playground for  Nabnasset Elementary School at 99 Plain Road.  

The funding was secured during budget negotiations by Rep. Arciero and was awarded in the Consolidated “F” Amendment during the House budget deliberations. 

“I am glad to have secured state funding for the Nabnasset School and for the construction of a  new playground for our community’s children and students,” Representative Arciero said. “It is vital for students of all ages to remain active, healthy and have safe settings to play and be with  

friends. Thank you to Speaker Ronald Mariano and House Ways and Means Chair Aaron  Michlewitz for this funding for the students of Westford.”  

The funding effort follows a meeting Rep. Arciero had with Westford resident, and member of the Nabnasset School Parent-Teacher Organization, Jamie Holmes at the school regarding the need for a new, remodeled playground. 

The project is one of four items Rep. Arciero secured in this year’s budget, including $50,000 for  Littleton’s robotics club, $70,000 for Chelmsford Police Department’s new incident command  vehicle and $70,000 for a lightning protection system for South Row Elementary School
