Developer Pulte Homes Cited by Rail Trail Committee

by Bobby Blair
November 10, 2017

Developer Pulte Homes of New England was admonished by members of the town's Rail Trail Committee Wednesday night at Town Hall. Pulte Homes' access to their new development, Holliston Woods, in the west end of town, crosses the rail trail. Member Herb Brockert below center, cited needed repair damage as well as smoothing out of the trail as needed remedies. Drainage problems which were to be addressed this past spring remain untouched. "Its not up to quality or standard Brockert noted. Pulte Homes representatives will be invited to the Trail's next meeting. Also on the hot seat was Solect of Hopkinton. Solect previously ended up in hot water when they felled trees on town property as part of their installation of solar panels. As part of Solect's agreement of restitution, the company promised the town to complete a parking lot near their installation just off Hopping Brook Road. The parking lot remains incomplete and the local Conservation Commission is now involved in the process.

The committee discussed the partitioning of land between Casey's Crossing and Blair Square extension. For safety purposes of trail users, the board discussed Jersey Barriers vs chain link fence vs a wooden guard rail. No decision was made. The expenditure of $2,000 was authorized to purchase a storage trailer. The trailer which would be housed at the highway yard is presently owned by Scooby's Trucks on Washington Street. With the town's new purchasing procurement policy, members were unsure if a sale is possible.

Ed Daniels above left, of the Friends of Holliston Trails attended the meeting and discussed way-finding signage, bench placement and trail etiquette. A trail user recently became lost on the trail and was unsure of where they were. Daniels said the Friends are working on an app to gps trail users their exact location. Daniels also said his group is readying for the First Night event on the trail and is asking for volunteers to man fire pits.
