UPPER CHARLES TRAIL PROJECT – PART 1: THE BEGINNINGS
In 2012, the Upper Charles Trail Committee (UCTC) was established in Hopkinton to plan and develop Hopkinton’s portion of the Upper Charles Trail. This regional trail would eventually link five towns – Hopkinton, Milford, Holliston, Sherborn, Ashland. Hopkinton’s portion will connect to the sections in Milford, which has been completed and Ashland, which is currently in the designing stage.
To learn more about the project, the history and challenges that have been highlighted in the 2014-15 Conway Study Report, click on the article below. More articles and updates will be available soon.

The Select Board, your Town Manager, and Department Heads invite you to share your thoughts and feedback on the Proposed Fiscal Year 2023 Comprehensive Budget. This will be a virtual listening session in which the Select Board and Staff will listen to your feedback and answer questions on the proposed Budget. Bringing together town residents to engage in a shared conversation around the proposed Budget, the strategic choices made, the distribution of costs and benefits of town services, and the anticipated tax impact is a crucial step in the development of the Town’s Budget. Your collective input and feedback are vital to the alignment of the Town’s expenditures with the community’s needs, while strengthening the Town’s economic viability in the short-term and medium-term.
