Philip M. Eliopoulos 
Chairman 

To the Residents of Chelmsford: 

Let me start off by saying hello to my fellow Chelms- 
ford Residents. My sincere hope is that this finds you well. It 
is my great privilege as Chairman of the Board of Selectmen to 
offer you my report for 2008. This past year brought many 
challenges to our town amid some positive developments. 

On the positive side, The Town continued to make 
improvements to its infrastructure. Foremost we have seen 
construction begin on the long awaited bike path. The bike 
path offers an exciting recreational opportunity for our commu- 
nity and is being constructed by the state at no cost to our town. 
The path will be completed in the early part of 2009 and should 
be available for our enjoyment this summer. The town also 
initiated several improvements to pedestrian safely in Chelms- 
ford center which will make it easier and safer for our residents 
to enjoy the growing businesses community. The town will 
also be completing the town wide sewer project which will 
have 100% of our community connected to town sewer within 
the next two years. This fulfills our long standing commitment 
to sewer our entire town. Through community preservation 
funds, which in part consisted of state grant monies, the Town 
acquired 22.5 acres of land known along Acton Road and 
Robin Hill Road. This acquisition is hopefully one of many 
steps in preserving our limited open space in Chelmsford while 
also protecting these larger parcels from being used by devel- 
opers who could target them for larger 40B developments. 

One of the most significant efforts of our town in re- 
cent years was the S3 1 million project to renovation and ex- 
pand portions of Chelmsford High School, McCarthy Middle 
School, and Parker Middle School. In 2004, Town Meeting 
and the residents approved the project in the midst of tremen- 
dous uncertainty as to the amount of reimbursement, if any, 
that Chelmsford would receive from the State for these school 
building projects. This past year closed out the completion of 
our school renovation project with the dedication of the new 
Auditorium at the High School. The project also consisted of 
new science classrooms and labs at the High School, substan- 
tial improvements made to the McCarthy and Parker Middle 
Schools libraries as well as additional classroom space, and 
other capital improvements. The town has worked diligently 
with the state to receive reimbursement for this project. The 
necessary documentation was compiled for reimbursement 
from the School Building Authority (SBA) for the high school 
portion of the S3 1 million school renovation project. Through

that effort, the Massachusetts School Building Authority 
(MSBA) awarded the Town of Chelmsford a construction grant 
in the amount of $8,739,542 for the Chelmsford High School 
addition/renovation project. The Town qualified for a 56.31% 
reimbursement rate on this project. The grant monies will be 
used to pay the debt service for the project, this alleviating a 
portion of this burden from our taxpayer. The town has begun 
compiling the necessary documentation for the two middle 
school portions of the project and expects to receive partial 
reimbursement from the state on these projects in the next two 
years. 

Through these positive developments for our commu- 
nity, 2008 was not without its challenges. During our fall 
budgeting season, we continued to work diligently with the 
Finance Committee and School Committee to address our fis- 
cal challenges. Once again it became apparent that limited 
revenue increases tied to escalating health insurance/benefit 
costs and energy costs would once again create an operating 
deficit for FY09. Given the significant cuts in services that 
would be necessary to balance the budget, the Board of Select- 
men decided to provide the voters with an opportunity to de- 
cide whether to raise an additional $2.8 million in property 
taxes to avoid cuts in education, public safety, and other Town 
services. Despite support from all members of the Board of 
Selectmen, School Committee, and Finance Committee, the 
override attempt failed by a margin of over 10% at the Annual 
April Town Election. Following the vote, our Boards, munici- 
pal and school administrations, and department heads worked 
collectively to achieve a FY09 balanced budget. This however

could not be done without a significant cut in local service, 
most notably with the closing of one of our elementary 
schools as well as our fire station in South Chelmsford, as 
well as personnel cuts in the Police Department, Department 
of Public Works, the Town Manager's Office, and other 
town departments. 

We will continue to rely on the cooperative efforts 
of all town officials and citizens to meet the challenges of 
increased fiscal pressures going forward. To that end, we 
must continue to work with our unions to achieve savings so 
as to continue to provide the services our town needs espe- 
cially in the areas of public safely and public education. 
Going forward, I call upon the unions to work with the town 
to adopt the state's insurance program which will save our 
town approximately $1,400,000.00 annually. This savings 
will be needed to meet the fiscal challenges of the upcoming 
budget years and will go towards saving the jobs of many of 
our town employees. 

This past year, Selectmen Sam Chase finished his 
first term on the board. We are grateful for Sam's commit- 
ment to our Board as well as the leadership he demonstrated 
on other boards and committees he has served on in the past. 
On behalf of the Board of Selectmen, I want to thank Sam 
for his continued service to the town as the Chairman of our 
Board of Assessors. We also welcome our newest Select- 
man, Eric Dahlberg, to the Board. Eric's strong desire to 
contribute as a new member together with his experience in 
the insurance related issues will be of particular benefit for 
our town during these ongoing challenges. 

I look forward to working with the Board of Select- 
men, our Town Manager, our School Superintendent, the 
School and Finance Committees, and all citizens of our com- 
munity in the coming year to ensure that Chelmsford contin- 
ues to be one of the finest towns in the Commonwealth. I 
want to express my sincere thank you to all town employees 
who serve the public every day with professionalism and 
dedication. I want to thank the many residents who offer 
their expertise to our community by serving on various 
boards and committees. And finally, I want to thank the vot- 
ers of this town for giving me the opportunity to serve you 
these last twelve years. It has been and will continue to be 
one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. 

Sincerely, 

Philip M. Eliopoulos, Chairman 
Chelmsford Board of Selectmen

Q/oitm 





Paul E Cohen 
Town Manager 




The history of the Town of Chelmsford's may charac- 
terize Fiscal Year 2008 as the year of the failed override at- 
tempt. The rising costs of government operations, particularly 
labor costs, retirement assessment, non-excluded debt service, 
and energy costs, prevented the construction of a level-services 
Town budget within the property tax constraints of Proposition 
2 Vi. The Board of Selectmen provided the voters with an op- 
portunity to decide whether to raise an additional S2.8 million 
in property taxes to avoid cuts in education, public safety, and 
other Town services. Despite support from the members of the 
Board of Selectmen, School Committee, and Finance Commit- 
tee, the override attempt failed by a margin of over 1 0% at the 
April Annual Town Election. 

During the past fiscal year. Town officials examined 
ways to raise additional revenue and to more efficiently pro- 
vide services. A considerable amount of time was expended on 
analyzing whether the Fire Department should provide ambu- 
lance services. After receiving a favorable proposal from the 
Town Manager and holding a public hearing prior to the 2007 
Fall Annual Town Meeting, the Board of Selectmen created an 
ad-hoc ambulance study committee. After a few months of 
study, the committee voted not to support the Fire Department- 



based financial model. Heeding this recommendation, an RFP 
was issued for the provision of ambulance services from pri- 
vate vendors. After a review of the three proposals, the Town 
has entered into a three-year contract with Trinity EMS. The 
Town will receive S60,000/year during each year of the con- 
tract as compensation for the dispatch operations provided by 
the Town to support ambulance operations. 

Other successful efforts to operate more efficiently 
included the consolidation of the Recreation Department into 
the Community Education Department. The combined opera- 
tions are now operating out of the Westlands School building. 
General Government and School Department information tech- 
nology operations are being consolidated at the School Ad- 
ministration Building located on North Road. The Town also 
issued an Invitation for Bids for towing services. The Town 
now receives approximately S40,000/year in revenues from this 
contract. 

The Town has made progress in improving its infra- 
structure. Town Meeting appropriated S16 million to fund the 
final phases of the town-wide sewer project. This work should 
be completed during the summer of 2010. The Town acquired 
22.5 acres of land known as the Lewis property, which is lo- 
cated off of Robin Hill Road and Acton Road. This $1.48 mil- 
lion purchase is the Town's first open space land acquisition 
via the Community Preservation Fund. Finally, construction 
has progressed on the Bruce Freeman Rail Trail, with a sched- 
uled completion date of summer 2009. 

During this past year, the Town welcomed Evan 
Belansky as the new Community Development Director and 
John Sousa as the new Finance Director/Treasurer-Collector. 
Evan led many successful efforts to promote the Town's eco- 
nomic development. One of the year's successes was the Town 
Meeting passage of a Tax Increment Financing agreement to 
bring Arbor Networks into the community. John Sousa moved 
over from the School Department in January. He contributed 
to the completion of the Town's FY09 budget and the bond 
sale to finance the sewer and school construction projects. 

The challenges during Fiscal Year 2008 were consid- 
erable. Three of the five members of the Board of Selectmen 
have changed during the past two elections. A new Town 
Manager, Finance Director/Treasurer-Collector, Town Ac- 
countant, and Community Development Director have been 
hired within a period of less than two years. The Town's cash 
reserves had dropped to less than 1.5% of the Town's budget, 
resulting in a downgrade in the Town's bond rating. The fal- 
tering national economy produced a decline in residential home 
construction and in home values.

Continued from Page 4 





Faced with these challenges, a budget plan was pre- 
sented to Town Meeting that did not rely on one-time revenues 
or otherwise avoid the fiscal realities. Capital investment has 
remained level-funded; the School Department has consoli- 
dated the students from the Westlands Schools into the Town's 
four other elementary schools, restructured its lunch program, 
imposed a transportation fee, and raised fees for extracurricular 
activities; the South Chelmsford Fire Station has closed as a 
result of the elimination of four firefighter positions; and other 
personnel cuts have been made at the Police Department, De- 
partment of Public Works, the Town Manager's Office, and 
other town departments. The challenges for the upcoming fis- 
cal year are expected to be even greater. However, we will 
continue our efforts to persevere and prosper. 

I would like to express my appreciation for the assis- 
tance that has been provided to me during the past fiscal year 
by the dedicated staff in the Town Manager's Office, the 
Town's talented department heads and devoted employees, the 
Board of Selectmen, Finance Committee, School Committee, 
and other Town officials. In the spirit of the Town's motto, we 
have worked together to guard what our forefathers have won 
as we strived to best serve our residents, businesses, and other 
community stakeholders. Our challenges have been great, our 
effort noble, and our future is bright.

John Sousa Jr. 
Finance Director 
Treasurer-Collector 




Fiscal Year 2008 was a period of transition in the 
Treasurer-Collector's Office. Former Finance Director Kerry 
Speidel resigned in November 2007 to accept a new position 
with the Town of Lunenburg. Carol Lambert retired in June 
after completing 19 years of meritorious service to the Town as 
Assistant Treasurer. We appreciate Carol's dedication and 
wish her a happy and healthy retirement. Congratulations to 
Kim Pease on her promotion to the position of Assistant Treas- 
urer and to Anna Griffin on her promotion as Departmental 
Assistant in the Tax Collector's Office. We also welcomed 
two new employees to the Tax Collector's Office: Maria Zu- 
luaga. Principal Clerk, and Melanie Manahan, Principal Clerk. 

The Town closed FY07 with a general fund balance of 
$2. 1M, an increase of $504,000 from the prior year. Although 
our reserves continued to decline, the Town continued to main- 
tain its overall solid financial position. At the end of FY07, our 
unreserved general fund balance declined to SUM and our 
stabilization fund decreased by S1.2M to a balance of S1.6M. 
Total available reserves of $3.3M, combining the unreserved 
general fund balance and the stabilization fund, were approxi- 
mately 3.5% of budget at fiscal year-end. 

Stabilization reserves equaled 1.8% of budgeted oper- 
ating revenues, which was below our fiscal policy minimum 
target of 5% of budgeted operating revenues. In light of this, 
the Finance team presented a plan to rebuild the stabilization 
fund toward 4.3% of budgeted operating revenue by FY2013 or 
sooner if fund balances permit. The past use of reserves has 
been needed to meet budget pressures caused by sharp in- 
creases in fixed costs. 




Employee benefit costs continue to be an area of concern going 
forward. Health insurance and pension benefit costs accounted 
for 15.9% of the Town's total FY08 budget. 

Despite a challenging economy, Chelmsford's unem- 
ployment rate of 3.7% remained below the rates for both Mas- 
sachusetts and the nation. Following two strong years of 
growth, assessed valuation (AV) declined 2.2% in FY08 to 
S5.25 billion. Per capita market value remained high at 
5154,300 per capita. Our tax base remains diverse, with the 10 
largest taxpayers accounting for less than 4% of total AV. In- 
come levels remained strong with median household effective 
buying income equal to 147% of the nation's average. 

The Town's overall debt burden is low at $1,330 per 
capita after accounting for state reimbursement toward a por- 
tion of school debt and sewer debt self-support through better- 
ments and user charges. Amortization of existing debt is rapid 
with 71% of principal being retired over 10 years. Debt service 
expenditures remain manageable with FY08 debt service ac- 
counting for 12.3% of total FY08 expenditures. 

The Town issued $8. 1M of General Obligation Bonds 
in June to permanently finance our FY07, FY08, and FY09 
Capital Improvement Plans and take advantage of the low in- 
terest rate environment. The Town also renewed S15.138M of 
short-term Bond Anticipation Notes (BANS) for our school 
construction projects while awaiting reimbursement from the 
Massachusetts School Building Authority for the High School 
project. 

Standard and Poors affirmed the Town's bond rating 
of AA- in June 2008 for the sale of our bonds and assigned a 
rating of SP-1+ for the sale of our BANS with a Stable Out- 
look. Standard and Poors maintained Chelmsford's bond rating 
in consideration of the Town's high wealth and income levels, 
continued growth of the tax base, relatively strong local econ- 
omy, and access to the Boston metropolitan area. Analysts also 
cited the fact that the FY09 budget was structurally balanced 
through a combination of personnel and service reductions and 
did not include any planned drawdown of stabilization reserves 
or use of one-time, non-recurring revenue.

Town Administration 




The Accounting Division is responsible for record 
keeping of all financial transactions of the Town; processing of 
all bills, warrants, receipts, payrolls and ledgers; and supplies 
departments with financial reports and payroll information. 
The Accounting Division ensures the Town is in compliance 
with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles, Federal and 
State Laws, and Town Meeting authorizations. 

In accordance with Section 6-7 of the Town Charter, 
the Board of Selectmen annually designates an independent 
public accountant or firm of accountants to audit the books and 
accounts of the town as allowed by Massachusetts General 
Laws. 

The annual audit requirement was completed in No- 
vember 2007 for the Fiscal Year 2007 by Powers and Sullivan 
of Wakefield, Massachusetts. 

Presented here from the annual audit is the Balance 
Sheet for the Fiscal Year ended June 30, 2007. For a complete 
explanation of the Town's fund structure and how it differs 
from the "budgetary basis" presented above, readers may refer 
to appendix C of the annual budget document. 

In the coming year, the Finance Department will con- 
tinue to promote the highest degree of public credibility and 
confidence in its operations by fostering fiscal accountability, 
efficiency, and integrity in all aspects of operations.

The Board of Assessors welcomed a new Board mem- 
ber in 2008. Sam Chase was appointed to the Board of Asses- 
sors in July and brings with him a wealth of experience having 
served on the Board of Selectmen and the Finance Committee. 
Board members Kevin Sullivan and Jack Duffett join the rest of 
the Assessing Department in welcoming Sam to the staff and 
look forward to working with him. 

The Board is responsible for the full and fair market 
valuation of the approximate 13,900 real and personal property 
parcels within the community as of January l sl of the fiscal year. 
It has been the policy of the Assessors to review the valuations 
annually in order to maintain accurate and current assessments; 
a summary of the analysis is reviewed by the Department of 
Revenue and is critical to the certification of the tax rate. 

The real estate valuations through CY 2006 showed 
signs of a real estate market that had cooled off. Accordingly, 
valuations on single family homes decreased 4% to 8% while 
condominiums also dropped depending on the complex. The tax 
rate for the fiscal year rose from $12.53 in FY2007 to 13.50 for 
FY2008. 

In addition, the Board is responsible for the administra- 
tion and abatement of the approximate 30,000 excise bills that 
are issued through several commitments annually by the Regis- 
try of Motor Vehicles. 

The Board wishes to take this opportunity to thank the 
staff of the Assessor's office for all their hard work and dedica- 
tion through the year. Recent changes with regard to personal 
exemptions have increased the workload. The additional work 
has been done timely and accurately while still maintaining the 
excellent service the public has come to expect. Particular 
thanks go to Nancy Maher, Elaine McBride, Susan McLaughlin 
and Kathryn Bianchi, all of whom are invaluable.

Elizabeth L. Delaney 
Town Clerk 

There were three elections in 2007. The first was the 
Annual Town Election of April 3 rd in which 3,925 voters par- 
ticipated. Then due to the resignation of Martin Meehan, the 
Congressional Representative in this district, the State declared 
that there be a special primary and election. The Special Pri- 
mary was held on September 4 l and 4,535 voters participated. 
At the October 16 th Special State Election, 7,863 voters partici- 
pated. The Annual Town Meeting began on April 30, 2007 
finished on the second meeting. There was a Special Town 
Meeting held on June 2 1 st . The Annual Fall Town Meeting 
began on October 15, 2007 and ran for two additional meet- 
ings. Due to limited space and printing cost, copies of the min- 
utes from any of these meetings and the election results, are 
available in the Town Clerk's Office. 

I thank my assistant, Raymonde Legrand and other 
staff members Bernadette Gilet, Mary Jane Comeau, for assist- 
ing this office throughout the year. Also, all the election, cen- 
sus workers and the personnel of the DP W, Police and School 
for enabling the election process to run smoothly. 



Sincerely, 

Elizabeth L. Delaney 
Town Clerk

SUBMITTED BY: Town Manager 

Majority 
It was so voted 

ARTICLE 24 I move to amend Section 137 of the Town 
Code (Solid Waste) as follows: 

1. Amend the first paragraph of section 137-2 by inserting the 
highlighted text: 

Restricted material: To insure compliance with the state solid 
waste facility regulation, 310 CMR 19.017, which prohibits the 
disposal as trash of certain recyclable materials, it shall be 
unlawful to have the following materials disposed of in, or col- 
lected with, the trash. The Town shall direct its contracted 
waste hauler, including any hauler that removes trash from 
town buildings not to collect any such visible recyclable mate- 
rials with the trash. 2. Amend Section 137-4(D) (1) by adding 
the highlighted text: 

D. Funding for the above programs shall be through the 

appropriation of funds by an Annual or Special Town Meeting 
and/or the establishment of an annual or other periodic user or 
subscriber fee or charge. 

(1) In the event that funding for any or all solid waste programs 
is derived from a Proposition 21/2 override, then those funds 
shall be exclusively used for such services for the fiscal year 
initially authorized for and all future years ("Override 
Amount"). In each year succeeding the year in which a Propo- 
sition 2 Vz override is approved to fund the solid waste pro- 
grams of the Town, the Override Amount shall be calculated 
for purposes of this by-law by adding 2 Vz percent to the previ- 
ous year's Override Amount. For example, in 1992, the voters 
of the Town approved a Proposition 2 Vz override in the amount 
of $1,655,000 to fund solid waste programs for Fiscal Year 
1993. 

In accordance with the requirements of this by-law, therefore, 
in Fiscal Year 1994, the Override Amount would have in- 
creased by $41,375.00, 2 Vz percent, to $1,696,375. In 1995,

the Override Amount would have increased by S42,409, 2 l A 
percent, to $1,738,784. Carried forward, the Override Amount 
for Fiscal Year 2009 shall be 2 Vi percent greater than the Fis- 
cal Year 2008 Override Amount, or $2,456,856. All such solid 
waste programs shall include service to all single-family resi- 
dences and all multifamily complexes. [Added 4-27-1992 STM 
by Art. 2] 

(a) The Town Manager shall, when presenting a budget to 
Town Meeting, specifically account for such funds, 
(b) In the event that Town Meeting shall, in any Fiscal Year 
raise and appropriate an amount for solid waste programs that 
is less than the Override Amount as calculated in accordance 
with Section 137-4(D)(2), the Town Manager shall include on 
the warrant for the Fall Town Meeting during the same Fiscal 
Year an article to transfer from free cash, if available, for the 
purpose of reducing the Town's tax rate the amount of the 
difference between the Override Amount and the amount actu- 
ally expended by the Town for solid waste programs. In the 
alternative, Town Meeting may transfer the surplus to a Solid 
Waste and Recycling Stabilization Fund. This paragraph shall 
apply regardless of whether the Board of Selectmen institutes 
a user fee to pay for all or a portion of the Town's solid waste 
programs for that Fiscal Year, and the Override Amount, for 
purposes of this by-law, shall not be reduced by the amount 
collected pursuant to said user fee. 

3. Amend Section 137-4(D) (3) by adding the highlighted 
text: In the event that a user or subscriber fee or charge is es- 
tablished, said funds will be accounted for and maintained in a 
program-specific enterprise fund or account. Such fund shall 
be administered by the Town Accountant in accordance with 
applicable state laws, rules and regulations concerning this 
type of account. The Town may only charge indirect costs to 
the program-specific enterprise fund in accordance with the 
regulations and requirements of the Massachusetts Department 
of Revenue. 

3. Add a new section 137-4 O to read as follows: 

O. The Town shall provide a leaf pickup and disposal service 
for residents of the Town as part of the Town's solid waste 
program. The Town is hereby authorized to utilize appropriate 
Town-owned land for a leaf composting operation, subject to 
all regulatory requirements

including the payment of the principal of and interest on any 
borrowing incurred pursuant to this vote, shall be paid through 
funds transferred from the Sewer Betterment Special Revenue

The Department experienced significant transition 
during the past year. After thirteen years working for the 
Town, Andrew Sheehan, the Community Development Direc- 
tor, resigned. In addition, Trillium Levine, Conservation Agent 
& GIS Manager, also resigned. 

The vacancies were filled with the hiring of Evan 
Belansky as the Community Development Director and Darren 
Guertin as the Conservation Agent & GIS Manager. 

During the transition period, Janet Murphy, Principal 
Clerk, did a remarkable job of keeping the Department func- 
tioning. 

The Department continued to provide administrative 
and technical staff support to the Planning Board, Conservation 
Commission and Zoning Board of Appeals in addition to man- 
aging community and economic development projects, grant 
administration, coordinating improvements to conservation 
lands, and interfacing with residents, developers, and other 
municipal staff. 



^menl 




Specifically, the Department managed the Town's 
economic development program by contracting with a consult- 
ant to assist with developing an Economic Development Profile 
and Assessment. The Department provided technical assis- 
tance and support to the Town Manager and Board of select- 
men during the discussions to attract several new businesses to 
Town; ultimately resulting in the approval of a Tax Increment 
Financing Plan with Arbor Networks. 

The Department initiated an update to its webpage in 
an attempt to provide more information to its customers. In 
addition, the Department, with assistance from the Town's GIS 
consultant, successfully completed an updated version of the 
Town's web based GIS system.

The Planning Board is responsible for insuring 
that the development of land in Chelmsford meets the 
criteria set forth in State and local land use regulations. 
The process involves the review of lot divisions, defini- 
tive and preliminary subdivisions, site plans, and special 
permits. The Planning Board strives to maintain the 
character of Chelmsford and enforce the provisions of the 
1997 Master Plan. 

In 2008, the Planning Board and staff drafted 
three amendments to the Zoning ByLaw relative to en- 
forcement powers for Town employees, the definition of 
a parking lot, and proposed fees for Planning Board re- 
view of parking lots to be constructed. After conducting 
advertised public hearings, the Board voted to recom- 
mend endorsement of these proposed changes. The war- 
rant articles were placed on the Spring 2008 Town Meet- 
ing Warrant and approved. 

Long time member Robert Morse ended his ser- 
vice in April 2008. James Lane was elected Member, 
and Colleen Stansfield was appointed Alternate Member.

In October of 2008 the Commission hired Agent/ 
Planner Darren Guertin taking the place of former Conserva- 
tion Agent Trill Levine who resigned. 

In FY08 the Conservation Commission began to re- 
view and improve the wetlands bylaw, regulations, and poli- 
cies. Three warrant articles were presented at Spring Town 
Meeting to delete the existing 1969 use restrictions, clarify 
enforcement and improve language to help understand limita- 
tions to construction. The Commission will continue to review 
the bylaw with the intent of updating it to current conservation 
standards and is expected to submit those changes to Town 
Meeting in FY09. New Land Use Restrictions for Conserva- 
tion reservations were adopted and can be found posted at all 
reservations and on the Conservation Commission website; 
http://www.townofchelmsford.us/Conservation- 
Commission.cfm 

The Town purchased the Walter Lewis property off 
Acton Road/Robin Hill Road with CPC funding for purposes 
of conservation and open space. The Commission will partici- 
pate in the management and re-use of the property 

With a lot of help from Phil Stanway and the volun- 
teers of the Chelmsford Open Space Stewardship Committee, 
http: //www. thechelmsfordian.com , the Commission continued 
to make improvements to its reservations, town forests, and 
conservation lands. The annual Thanksgiving Walk organized 
by the Open Space Stewardship Committee at Thanksgiving 
Forest was a tremendous hit with over 200 residents attending. 
The Stewards made major improvements to Red Wing Farm 
including a connecting path to the Freeman rail trail, restora- 
tion of four fields with an apple orchard, installation of five 
stone benches, various plantings and the replacement of a col- 
lapsed culvert with a bridge crossing. The Chelmsford Garden 
Club in collaboration with Jones Farm planted a butterfly gar- 
den and the Chelmsford Women of Today also contributed 
with the donation of a picnic table. At Russell Mill Town For- 
est six miles of mountain bike trails were restored and up- 
graded. At Crooked Spring Reservation Eagle Scout Jesse 
Tang-Kong's project was approved for trail maintenance and 
the construction of a bridge. At Deep Brook Reservation two 
bridges were constructed. At Wright Reservation a bridge re-

funds available for improvements and maintenance to the 
Town's open space including conservation land. 

As has been the case for several decades, the majority of the 
Conservation Commission's time was devoted to wetlands pro- 
tection. The Commission reviewed a total of 72 applications 
under the Massachusetts Wetlands Protection Act and Chelms- 
ford Wetlands Bylaw. Of these applications 38 were for Re- 
quests for Determination of Applicability (RDA), 14 were for 
Notices of Intent (NOI), 2 were for Abbreviated Notices of 
Resource Area Delineation (ANRAD), 14 were for Requests 
for Certificate of Compliance (COC) and 4 were for a Request 
for an Extension to Order of Conditions (REO).

The Community Preservation Act (CPA) provides a 
source of funding for Open Space Preservation, Historic Pres- 
ervation and Affordable Housing. At the April 2006 Town 
election, the voters enacted an increase in the CPA surcharge; 
the surcharge was increased to 1.5% from 0.5%. Along with 
the increase two additional exemptions were passed; a low- 
income individual and family exemption, and a moderate- 
income senior exemption. The State supplies matching funds 
from an account created specifically for the CPA. The FY2008 
State Match of $524,702 will be received this fall. 

The CPC was proud to complete its first land acquisi- 
tion using CPA funds! This Spring, the Town closed on the 
acquisition of over 22 acres of farmland, known locally as the 
"Lewis Farm", land formerly owned by the late Walter Lewis. 
The CPC offers it's thanks to the property owners; George 
Dole and Linda Dole of Shelburne Falls, MA, and to our Town 
Manager, Paul Cohen, for all their efforts in making the acqui- 
sition go smoothly. 

The Lewis Farm currently has two active farming ten- 
ants, and there are plans for using a portion of the land for 
Community Gardens with the assistance of the Chelmsford 
Open Space Stewardship. 

Another important project that has received CPC 
funding this year is the development funding for the creation of 
up to 45 units of Senior Affordable Housing and Housing for 
the Disabled. The housing will be located near the Senior Cen- 
ter. The Chelmsford Housing Authority is driving this vital 
project. 

The CPC thanks Donna Newcomb for her many years 
of membership on the CPC. We also welcome member Jim 
Lane as the new Planning Board appointee. We would also like 
to note the passing of Robert Hall, a long time past member of 
the CPC. 

An application for requesting CPA funding for His- 
toric Preservation, Affordable Housing, and Open Space and 
Recreation projects is available at the Community Develop- 
ment Dept.

Christina H. Walsh, Angelo J. Taranto, Top L-R: Katherine Duffetl, Kevin 
Porter, Evelyn S. Thoren 

The membership of the Chelmsford School Commit- 
tee in April of 2007 included; Mrs. Kathy Duffett, Chair; Mrs. 
Christina Walsh, Vice Chair; Mrs. Evelyn Thoren, Secretary; 
Members at Large; Mr. Angelo Taranto and Mr. Kevin Porter, 
and Sean Deshaies, Student Representative. Central Admini- 
stration for the Chelmsford School Department included Dr. 
Donald R. Yeoman, Superintendent of Schools; Dr. Karen 
Mazza, Assistant Superintendent of Curriculum & Instruction; 
Mr. Robert Cruickshank, Business Manager; Mrs. Dory Top- 
pan, Director of Personnel; and Mr. Bruce Forster, Director of 
Educational Technology and Information Services. 

This year district team members spent hundreds of 
extra hours providing financial information to the public as the 
community studied town finances. Monthly, and sometimes 
weekly, presentations were made to government officials and 
town citizens so that residents understood why our community 
has not been receiving adequate state support. These presenta- 
tions also included historical budget information about the suc- 
cess of district efficiency and economy efforts in areas such as 
energy conservation. Spiking energy costs have had not only a 
negative impact on our district's utility bills, but also on the 
price we pay for goods delivered to schools such as books, sup- 
plies, food, and equipment. The many detailed analyses were 
most specific. 

The district developed three initial alternative plans to 
reduce the budget if the override ballot question failed. Plan 
development took many months to complete, and one plan was 
selected. 



Since the override ballot question did fail in April, that 
plan has gone into effect with one school closing for students in 
Kindergarten through grade 4. The students from that school 
(Westlands) have all been transferred to other schools within the 
District. Because of this shift in students, all elementary schools 
had to be redistricted, and students from each of the other four 
elementary schools had to move to other schools to help balance 
the school population for each school. 

In the end, 44 employment positions were cut. These 
included persons from all categories of our staff (administration, 
teachers, custodians, food service workers, secretaries, aides, 
nurses, etc.) The District is now leaner in staffing than it has 
been in years. 

For the first time in history students were charged to 
ride the bus to school in Chelmsford. Each child was assessed 
S200 if they lived 2 miles or closer to school and were in grades 
K-6 (per state law). All students in grades 7-12 who registered 
to ride the bus were assessed $200 each. Only students who 
received free or reduced lunches or who had special education 
disabilities requiring transportation out-of-town to a special 
school or facility received free transportation under the federal 
law. 

Athletic fees increased dramatically along with student 
activity fees and student parking fees. Specifically athletic fees 
increased from $200 to $300 for the first sport, from $150 to 
$250 for the second sport, and from $100 to $200 for the third 
sport per athlete. Last year there was a family cap of $600. 
This year there is no family cap. The student parking fee in- 
creased from $180 to $200 as well. The District saved taxpayers 
$200,000 per year for the next 3 years by changing the transpor- 
tation company that transports in-town special education stu- 
dents. Over the years this will help keep spending down.

It took five months to redistrict, establish a transporta- 
tion system for pay, make all the cuts in personnel, transfer 
existing personnel from building to building according to our 
various negotiated contracts because of the shifts in students, 
and clean and repair our buildings with less staff. School be- 
gan on time. 



Although the District focused on this priority and the 
massive number of additional issues this subject created, stu- 
dents once again achieved at higher levels than ever before. 
Much thanks goes to teachers, coordinators, building and cen- 
tral administrators, and support staff for the terrific work they 
accomplished resulting in this distinguished achievement. 

I am most pleased with the increasing academic suc- 
cess of our students. Strong recruitment, selection, and staff 
development programs have resulted in the cutting-edge 
teacher skill I witness each day as I visit classrooms. And the 
strength of our curricula is a direct result of strategic curricular 
planning. These programs, combined with the diligent efforts 
of our talented teachers and students, have ensured increasing 
student success. 



tinue down-sizing places this mission in jeopardy. To that end 
we look forward to continuing to work together with the Town 
and with State Legislators to provide the supports and services 
our students and our town need and deserve. Although there 
will continue to be financial challenges ahead, we look to the 
future with optimism as we work together with the Town to im- 
prove our community. 

Respectfully submitted,

The fiber optic cable network project connecting the 
schools and the Town has gone smoothly. Fibers will come 
together in a centralized hub at the school district's Central 
Administrative Office. This fiber system will increase technol- 
ogy speed and usability for students as well as for District and 
Town staff improving efficiency. 

I am especially pleased with the patience and support 
of our students and parents as many changes are being imple- 
mented at the same time to save money because of the failed 
override. I thank staff members at all levels who have dili- 
gently worked with such patience with the change process. As 
you know, it is most difficult to change so many things at once 
when so many different people and programs which affect each 
other are involved. 

Our concern now is for the future. As the economy is 
in a downswing, and Chelmsford continues to be disadvantaged 
by the present Chapter 70 funding formula, we continue to be 
concerned about the ability of the District to meet increases in 
fixed costs despite the significant down-sizing and expense 
reductions the District has made. Our mission is to improve 
the school system and learning results for students. To con-

Nashoba Superintendent 

Nashoba Valley Technical High School is a regional technical 
high school established in 1969 to serve students grades 9-12 
and also provides post-graduate programs for those between 
the ages of 18 and 25 years old. Nashoba has earned an im- 
pressive reputation for producing community leaders as well as 
providing community service. With an enrollment of approxi- 
mately 700 students from seven communities, Nashoba Valley 
Technical High School offers career preparation in 16 technical 
programs 

The Year in Review 

In 2008 Nashoba added a music teacher to its faculty. 
It is the first time in the school's history the school has had 
music in its course selections, which will bring more opportu- 
nities to study all areas of the TV Media/Theatre Arts industry. 

Nashoba is working to advance its green initiative 
with an energy audit to assist the school with alternative energy 
source designation that will save on the soaring costs of fossil 
fuels. Additionally, all construction technical fields will be 
constructing and maintaining these alternative energy sources. 
We will also the first school in the Commonwealth to use water 
borne paints in our Autobody Program. This reduces, accord- 
ing to research, the volatile gases by approximately 90%. We 
have even involved our school committee in our green initia- 
tive by emailing agenda packets to save on paper waste and the 
cost of mailing. 

Nashoba continues as a satellite campus for Fitchburg 
State College with many professional development and ad- 
vanced graduate matriculation opportunities for our teachers 
and administrators. Classes have been well attended and inter- 
esting to all participants. 

Finally, NVTHS continues to improve its post secon- 
dary opportunities for students with multiple new articulation 
programs with public and private colleges, as well as, immedi- 
ate career placement with our ever increasing business and 
industry partners.

Special Academic Programs 

Advanced Placement Honors and College Preparatory courses 
are available in all core subjects. Foreign language and addi- 
tional educational courses are offered for all four years for all 
interested students. 
Dual Enrollment 

Juniors who are eligible and recommended by teachers/ 
administration may elect to enter the Dual Enrollment Program 
and take courses the junior and senior year at a two- or four- 
year public college or private institution in Massachusetts or 
New Hampshire. Upon completion, they receive their high 
school diploma from Nashoba and one or two years of college 
credit. More than 30 students in recent years have graduated 
with an Associates degree from college and their high school 
diploma at the same time. Also, individual study programs for 
talented students are directed to their area of excellence. Many 
of our students are accepted at such distinguished institutions 
as MIT, Ithaca College, Emerson College, Boston University, 
and University of Massachusetts, among others. 
Student Activities 

Nashoba sponsors an extensive program in intra-scholastic 
sports including varsity teams in 10 high school sports with 
equal opportunities for both male and female students. Other 
extracurricular activities include Student Council, National 
Honor Society, Yearbook, Students Against Destructive Deci- 
sions, Skills USA, Student Leadership, Peer Mediation, and 
many special interest clubs. No user fees are imposed on any 
sport, school sponsored club or activity. 
Continuing & Community Education 

More than 700 adult students attended the Continuing Commu- 
nity Education Program in late afternoon and evenings at Na- 
shoba. More information can be found on the NVTHS website. 
Community Service Projects 

Nashoba is unique in its approach to community service and its 
relationship to its district towns. Students are expected to go 
with their instructors to areas of our district to work on commu- 
nity service projects that have been approved and selected for 
their benefit to the community and the learning of our students. 
The students perform necessary work for the district towns. 
The Community Service Program educates students in a real 
world setting and allows the towns the benefit of viewing Na- 
shoba students at work and having a major project completed 
without expending limited town resources for capital improve- 
ment. Samples of projects completed for Chelmsford recently 
are: a housing authority vehicle repaired and painted; electrical 
work in Hillock House and plumbing in Garrison House; the 
construction of a handicap ramp and other building repairs at 
the Paul Center and many luncheons for various clubs and de- 
partments.

James F. Murphy 
Chief of Police 

I respectfully submit the FY2008 Annual Report for 
the Police Department. At the present time, the department has 
a sworn complement of 52 officers. In total, over 33,000 calls 
for service were handled by the department. 

The philosophy at the police department continues to 
emphasize community policing concepts. In working in part- 
nership with the residents and business people, the department 
continues to address and resolve issues of concern throughout 
the community. 

The department continues to focus on priority areas 
related to traffic, disturbance and nuisance issues, and drug and 
alcohol violations. These quality of life issues are of para- 
mount importance in maintaining safety and security through- 
out the town. 

The department is also continuing in the process of 
seeking statewide certification with the Massachusetts Police 
Accreditation Commission. This process involves the review 
and revision of rules and regulations, as well as policies and 
procedures within the department. This process will enhance 
professionalism in the department, and will help ensure consis- 
tency and uniformity within the agency. 

On May 15, 2008, the police department dedicated its 
Roll Call Room in the name of Donald F. Adams. Officer Ad- 
ams was a Chelmsford Police Officer killed in the line of duty 
in 1927. The ceremony, which took place on Police Officer's 
Memorial Day, was attended by numerous family members, 
police personnel and town officials. 

Finally, the Town of Chelmsford experienced one of 
the most violent crimes ever, on July 30, 2007. On this date, an 
armed, masked intruder broke into a residence in the early 
morning hours, and assaulted a young female victim. Through 
the valiant and heroic efforts of the parents, the intruder was 
forcibly restrained, and held by the parents until officers ar- 
rived and placed him under arrest. After a short investigation, 
the suspect was implicated in two previous homicides in New 
Jersey and Pennsylvania. The suspect has pleaded guilty in our 
Chelmsford incident, and was sentenced to 25-30 years in state 
prison. I would like to commend the victims in this case, and 
also the officers involved in the arrest and investigation of the 
suspect.

life and property, and providing professional law enforcement 
and crime prevention services. We accept the challenge of 
reducing the fear of crime by the prevention of criminal activ- 
ity. We shall provide these services with compassion, dignity, 
and a proficiency within the framework of the United States 
Constitution. To enhance the quality of life for all citizens, we 
will cooperate with other agencies and groups to resolve com- 
munity concerns. To fulfill our mission, the Chelmsford Police

Animal Control Officer 



The Animal Control 
Officer responds to a variety of 
animal and wildlife calls 
throughout the community. 
Those calls involving public 
safety or public welfare will be 
addressed by the Animal Con- 
trol Officer. I would like to 
remind all residents that calls 
such as removal of animals 
from chimneys, under porches, 
or inside attics must be handled 
by a private pest control company. 

I would like to also remind all pet owners that it is their re- 
sponsibility to insure that their pets are properly vaccinated and li- 
censed. Also, all dogs must be leashed or under strict control at all 
times, and all waste must be picked up from all public and private 
property. This especially pertains to town fields, schools, and conser- 
vation lands. 

I would like to thank all the residents who have donated 
food, blankets, towels, and supplies. We are always in need of these 
items. I would like to thank all the people who attended our rabies/ 
microchip clinic and programs that we have provided. Please look for 
upcoming events. 

I would like to thank the 
Town Manager, Board of Selectmen, 
Police Department and all other town 
departments for their support and as- 
sistance over the last year.

John E. Parow 
Fire Chief 

The Chelmsford Fire Department has been very busy 
this year answering a total of 4,922 emergency calls. Fire calls 
increased this year over last, totaling 205, an increase of 39 fire 
calls. Medical emergency calls also continued to grow and 
now accounted for more than half of our calls. We responded 
to an all time high of 2,506 calls for medical assistance this 
past year. Based on the fact that emergency medical care has 
become such a large part of the department's responsibility the 
Chelmsford Fire Department applied for and received a license 
from the state to operate a "Class 5" ambulance. This license 
greatly enhances the ability of the department to provide a 
higher level of medical care and transport patients to the hospi- 
tal in the case of an extreme emergency. In addition, the de- 
partment took the lead in writing the "Emergency Medical Ser- 
vice Zone Plan" for the Town of Chelmsford. This plan out- 
lines how emergency medical care will be delivered within the 
Town and sets the standard of care town residents will receive. 
Firefighter John Robinson spent hundreds of hours putting this 
plan together and he is to be commended for his effort. 

The concern of terrorism has forced the department to 
prepare itself as the first line of defense against incidents of this 
type. Specialized equipment has been purchased and put into 
service. In addition, mandatory National Incident Management 
System (NIMS) training has been conducted for all department 
members and we now meet or exceed the national standard in 
this area. 

The Department applied for and received two State 
grants during this fiscal year. One was to continue our Student 
Awareness Fire Education (SAFE) program. This program al- 
lows us to send trained fire department personnel into the 
schools and educate our students on fire safety and the ill ef- 
fects of smoking. The department also received a grant from 
the State for firefighting equipment. 






The department will purchase a new thermal imaging 
camera and a rapid intervention breathing air kit with the 
money from that grant. We owe a great debt of gratitude to our 
state legislators for their help in providing this funding. 

Two seasoned veterans with over 60 years of com- 
bined experience retired during this past year. The department 
wishes Captain Rich Miller and Firefighter Mike Ridlon a long 
and enjoyable retirement. These vacancies were filled by hir- 
ing two town residents Firefighter/EMTs Ryan Houle and Josh 
Abbott. Firefighter Gary Ryan was promoted to Captain. We 
wish them all well in their new positions. In addition. Fire- 
fighter Mike Young was activated by the military and is serv- 
ing our country in Iraq. His deployment is expected to last for 
fifteen months. Our thoughts and prayers are with him and his 
family. 

Structural problems have been identified with the ap- 
paratus floor at the Center Fire Station. Thirteen large support 
columns have been built in the basement to support and stabi- 
lize the floor. Although the floor has been stabilized the engi- 
neer has told us that this is only a temporary fix and will buy us 
a little time until we can build a new station. A building com- 
mittee has been established to look into the feasibility of build- 
ing and locating a new Center Fire Station. Their recommenda- 
tions are expected to be presented at the 2007 October Town 
Meeting. 

Because of budget problems within the Town the Fire 
Department has been forced to cut four firefighter positions and 
a clerk in recent years. Although we do understand the fiscal 
restraints associated with the town budget the cut backs are 
making it very difficult for the department to provide the ser- 
vices the citizens of the town have grown accustomed to ex- 
pect. It is paramount that when the financial picture brightens 
or alternative funding sources are identified that these positions 
are restored. 

I would like to thank all members of the department, 
my staff, the Town Manager, and the Board of Selectmen for 
their support over the past year. 

Respectfully submitted, 
John E. Parow, Fire Chief

Jennifer Almeida 
recycling Coordinator 

The Office of Recycling and Solid Waste works to 
insure excellent trash and recycling services that 
comply with state waste bans, local bylaws, govern- 
ing contracts and all other pertinent requirements. 
The Recycling Office staff works to educate resi- 
dents about the importance of waste reduction for 
the environment and to save municipal funds. The 
office is staffed by two part time employees: Jenni- 
fer Almeida, Recycling Coordinator, and Winnie 
Colbert, Recycling Assistant, and is supported by the 
Chelmsford Recycling Committee: Bonnie Rankin, 
chair; Mark Gallagher, clerk; Jo Morse; Ron Good- 
ner; Nancy Kaelin; Kathy Brough; Mark Grant, Ron 
Goodner and Norm Eisenmann. 

Chelmsford residents should be commended for 
their successful waste reduction efforts. In FY2008 
Chelmsford generated 13,369 tons of solid waste, 
representing our third annual decline after many 
years of steadily rising trash tonnages. FY08's ton- 
nage was the lowest in over 15 years, and if we treat 
FY05 (the last full year before the bylaw went into 
effect) as our baseline, our recycling and other waste 
reduction efforts have saved the town well over 
$300,000 in trash disposal fees. 

Drop off events: The Recycling Office and 
the Chelmsford Recycling Committee held six recy- 
cling drop off events in FY08: two for electronics 
and tires, two for brush and two for scrap metal and 
usable household goods for charity. These events 
provided residents with a way to dispose of waste 
banned items such as tires, appliances and televi- 
sions, and to divert other items - such as usable but 
unwanted household goods - from the trash. At these 
drop-offs we took in over 1 100 CRTs, almost 300 
air conditioners and dehumidifiers, and thousands of 
pounds of other small electronics. We collected 
over 232 tires and over 77,000 pounds of scrap 
metal for recycling, and area charities and Boy Scout 
Troop 74 collected several truck loads of usable fur- 
niture and household goods. 



Education and outreach: The Recycling Office 
published the annual "Chelmsford Recycles" flyer, 
a comprehensive description and "how to" guide 
on recycling and solid waste in Chelmsford. The 
flyer was mailed to all households in late June. 
The Recycling Office also maintained and updated 
the recycling portion of the Town's website 
(" www.townofchelmsford.us/Recycling- 
Department.cfm ). In addition, recycling volunteer 
Marion Hamblett, working with the Recycling Of- 
fice and the Recycling Committee, designed and 
brought online a new website, 
www.chelmsfordrecycles.org , to provide an easy 
to find and easy to use website for residents with 
recycling questions. The Recycling staff also up- 
dated Chelmsford's local access television sta- 
tion's community bulletin board with information 
on solid waste and recycling, updated its recorded 
information line at 978-250-5299, wrote occa- 
sional newspaper articles for the local press and 
drafted informational pieces on the Office's pro- 
grams for publication in the Town's Community 
Newsletters. 

Leaves and composting: The Recycling Office 
provided information to residents about options for 
the disposal of their leaves and yard waste. In the 
absence of Town financed leaf collection services, 
the Recycling Office refers residents to the Jones 
Farm curbside collection and drop off programs 
and encourages home composting. In FY2008 the 
Recycling Office sold over 70 compost bins to 
residents.

Rain barrel distribution day was April 16 at the Town Of- 
fices. Over J 00 residents purchased rain collection barrels 
under this DEP grant program. 



Regional efforts: The Recycling Office was an ac- 
tive participant in the Merrimack Valley Regional 
Recycling Partnership (MVRRP). Consisting of the 
City of Lowell and surrounding towns, the MVRRP 
undertakes projects aimed at 
increasing recycling awareness and participation, 
and explores ways for these communities to work 
together to improve services while keeping down the 
costs to each municipality. In FY08, our work with 
the MVRRP included the creation of the second an- 
nual Earth Day "Reduce, Reuse, Recycle" guide 
published by the Lowell Sun (copies of the guide are 
available at the Recycling Office); a successful ef- 
fort to secure a contractor for fee-based curbside col- 
lection of appliances, electronics and tires with ex- 
cellent service and reasonable prices; and ongoing 
efforts to explore a regional household hazardous 
waste options. In addition, in FY2008, in conjunc- 
tion with several other communities in and near the 
Merrimack Valley we began exploring the possibil- 
ity of a regional disposal contract that would allow 
Chelmsford and the other communities to benefit 
from lower tip fees in 201 1 and beyond. Work on 
this endeavor is continuing. 



DEP Grants: 

We received a DEP grant for discounted rain bar- 
rels and, working with the New England Rain Bar- 
rel company, we were able to distribute over 100 
rain barrels to Chelmsford residents in April. 

Chelmsford also participated in a DEP grant pro- 
gram with the Town of Arlington to examine and 
attempt to improve recycling at multifamily prop- 
erties. Under this program we surveyed residents 
at three targeted multifamily properties, provided 
them with recycling equipment and information, 
and sought follow up information from the resi- 
dents. 

Under a DEP grant with Billerica and Tewksbury, 
Chelmsford now has an 8 hour a week "recycling 
enforcement coordinator" (REC) who is on the 
street early in the morning surveying residents' 
recycling and trash set outs and keeping track of 
compliance with state and local waste bans and 
with Chelmsford's trash limits and recycling rules. 

Chelmsford received an anti-idling grant to edu- 
cate residents and school staff about the costs and 
adverse environmental and health impact of vehi-

severe for children, the grant focuses on school prop-

when they are not in traffic, and to educate everyone 
about state law prohibiting excessive vehicle idling.

With the assistance of the Recycling Committee

The Cemetery Commission is pleased to report the following 
accomplishments for fiscal year 2008, to the citizens of 
Chelmsford. 

At Pine Ridge Cemetery, we have completed redesigning a 
small area in Section I, which has provided the Town get maxi- 
mum use out of this section. We are in the planning stages of 
opening additional areas which will include traditional earth 
burials along with earth burial lots specifically for cremation 
and the construction of a Niche Wall, also for cremation. 

In June of this year we took delivery of a 2008 John Deere 
backhoe which is replacing a 1991, this will provide the Ceme- 
tery many years of service. 

With construction of the new storage garage at Pine Ridge 
Cemetery complete, during the winter months we installed in- 
sulation, built shelving and work benches, we also heated the 
garage which gives us the ability to store all the equipment in 
the new garage. We are looking forward to renovating the of- 
fice area this upcoming winter. 

With the assistance of the Community Preservation Fund, 
Heart Pond Cemetery, West Chelmsford Cemetery and River- 
side Cemetery have all under gone restoration work which is 
now complete. 

Please visit the Town's web site at www.townofchelmsford.us 
and click on the Public Facilities link; then to the Cemetery 
Department link, here you will find information on the Ceme- 
tery Commission, the six cemeteries in town and directions to 
each of them; current rates, and also a link to the Cemetery 
Archives to search genealogy. 

During Fiscal Year 2008 there were 139 total interments, 106 
full burials and 33 cremation interments which accounted for 
nearly 25% of total interments. There were 77 cemetery lots 
sold throughout the town. Twenty- six residents participated in 
the Prepaid Interment Fee Program. The Cemetery Commis- 
sion appreciates our staffs efforts to keep Chelmsford's six 
public cemeteries well-maintained and attractive burial places. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Peter S. Pedulla, Chairman

Sewer Project construction and site restoration were 
completed this year for the second segment of Phase 4F (Hunt 
Road Area Lateral Sewers) and the first segment of Phase 4G 
(Burning Tree Lane Area Lateral Sewers). Construction on the 
second segment of Phase 4G (Robin Hill Road Area Later Sew- 
ers) is on schedule, as pipeline installation continues through 
2008 with an anticipated completion of final paving and site res- 
toration during the spring of 2009. 

The final two phases of the Chelmsford Sewer Project 
(4H & 41) encompass one construction contract each. Design of 
the Phase 4H Project, which includes the Park Road and Cam- 
bridge Street areas, was completed during the summer of 2008, 
with bidding and construction anticipated to commence in the 
Fall of 2008. Design of the Phase 41 area, which includes the 
Moore Street and Ledge Road areas, is anticipated to be complete 
by the end of 2008, with bidding and construction scheduled to 
commence in the Winter/Spring of 2009. 

The CSC would like to acknowledge Mary Calandrella 
and Sharon Boyer for their hard work and professionalism. We 
would also like to welcome Diane Morgan to the Chelmsford 
Sewer Commission office. These three individuals interface with 
the public on a daily basis, and their multifaceted duties are 
shared by the Sewer Division of the Department of Public Works.

The Chelmsford Sewer Commission would like to take 
a moment to recognize a long time dedicated member and a close 
friend. George Abely was an active member of the Chelmsford 
Sewer Commission from 1991 until his passing in August of 
2008. During that time, he played an integral role in the plan- 
ning, design, and construction of the Chelmsford Sewer Project. 
His memory carries on in us all as we approach completion of 
this successful Project.

Human Services Director 




The Human Services/Elder Services Department provides ad- 
vocacy and support systems which empower older adults to 
maintain independence, prepare for life changes and improve 
their quality of life. 

American society is evolving, changing and realizing that aging 
is a complicated process not simply defined by a number. Even 
the very definition of "senior" is undergoing analysis and 
change with adjectives such as "seasoned citizens", "Geri- 
Actives" and "Rewired" being used with greater frequency to 
describe older Americans. Tomorrow's challenges will vary a 
great deal in response to the "Boomers" expectations versus the 
expectations of today's mature adult. 

The variety of Wellness programs and services provided by the 
COA strive to: support frail elders in their homes; case man- 
agement for older adults to age in place; provide information 
and assistance to families making life change decisions con- 
cerning elder family members; provide some supportive ser- 
vices for disabled of all ages; empowering consumers; and, 
provide preventive health programming, advocacy, education, 
social, and leisure opportunities for active adults. Fostering a 
sense of community and involvement through shared experi- 
ences guides the COA's activity. 

Last year our department provided over fifty programs and 
services in response to human need. The following statistics 
give some indication of our efforts and commitment to service. 

Additional programs and services include: monthly support 
groups for Alzheimer's, care-givers, grief, and a weekly anxi- 
ety support group and widows group; a monthly newsletter to 
senior households in Chelmsford and surrounding communi- 
ties; provide free medical equipment to frail residents; offered 
over 50 recreational trips to all areas of New England; and of- 
fer healthy exercise programs such as Tai Chi, Yoga, Pace ar- 
thritis exercise, strength training, line dancing, and aquacise. 

More than 150 volunteers provide critical services to both com- 



munity residents and the Senior Center. They provided 
36,382 hours of service to the community. Expressed in paid 
equivalent terms, volunteer efforts are double the local tax 
appropriation at $559,919. We are so appreciative of all the 
hours provided by these amazing, caring people. 

Future Goals 

The Council on Aging, in conjunction with other community 
organizations, have been meeting to address meeting the 
needs of the coming generations of residents. How to meet 
the needs of a diverse group spanning 40 years of life is ex- 
tremely challenging. It takes input and cooperation from the 
whole community. 

We are also beginning the long process of having the senior 
center nationally accredited. This too is very challenging and 
is being coordinated by volunteers. 

One other challenge in the coming year will be to maintain the 
current number of people served in our Nutrition program. 
The state and federal Title III funding continues to be cut each 
year as overhead, food costs and transportation costs increase. 

An additional challenge will be meeting the increasing trans- 
portation needs with one driver and one vehicle. How do we 
meet the increasing need for transportation in the current fis- 
cal climate? 

The Council On Aging is committed to continue to strengthen 
the capacity of our department in Fiscal Year 2009. In the 
coming year, we will continue to advocate for older commu- 
nity adults: in the areas of health, transportation, taxes and 
affordable housing; gather information from Chelmsford sen- 
iors regarding 'what works well and what changes could be 
made'; and, continue assisting seniors and families in provid- 
ing services that will assist them "Aging in Place" safely in 
their homes. 

In Genuine Appreciation : 

First and foremost, special thanks to the Department's staff. 
They must be recognized for their dedication, compassion, 
and professionalism to all participants of the Center, the pub- 
lic, and toward the many volunteers. 

It is the members of the Council on Aging who work con- 
stantly with the Director to bring about responsive program- 
ming and quality services to the residents of Chelmsford. 
Council on Aging Members include: Chairperson, Diana 
Boisvert, Vice Chair, Paul Sweeney, Clerk Ann Warburton, 
Robert Grippo, Louise Myers, Mary Jane Rainge, Stella 
Apostolos, Walter Cinsavich, Hank McCall and Enid Rocha. 
Outgoing Board member: John Cody gave 6 years of dedi- 
cated service to the Council. We thank him for his dedication

and support on behalf of the Chelmsford community. I am 
most appreciative of the assistance they have given me and 
look forward to their assistance and new members assistance 
in the future. 

The Chelmsford Human Services Department and Council on 
Aging are challenged to offer service and support to a rapidly 
growing population. We welcome input from the community

becky legros herrmann, 
Library Director 



As the costs of gas and fuel oil have skyrocketed, town de- 
partments and community members have been looking for 
ways to tighten our belts. Folks are taking fewer vacations, 
eating out less, driving less, and using the library more. For 
years, public library pundits have proclaimed that in economic 
downturns, citizens turn to their library more. We see the 
proof in that statement with our enormous circulation numbers 
(close to 600,000 circulations this year) — the highest in our 
library history — and with the large turn-outs we get for our 
"free" story hours and programs. But "free" is really a misno- 
mer. 

As a recent article in American Libraries said - the slogan 
for public libraries should be "Your library — the best thing 
you are already paying for..." Each year your tax dollars go 
toward supporting the library - an average of $40 - S45 per 
capita. That is less than a dollar a week, yet it enables you to 
have access to more than 100,000 books, over 10,000 CD's 
and audio books and close to 12,000 DVD and videocassettes. 
(And those are just the items at the Chelmsford Public Library 
- your library card membership also entitles you access to 
over 3 million items available in the Merrimack Valley Li- 
brary Consortium.) In addition you can attend one of over 900 
programs offered at the Chelmsford Library or the MacKay 
Branch during the year. Those programs include book discus- 
sion groups, conversation circles, movie nights, guest lectur- 
ers and authors, informational seminars, computer instruction 
classes, puppeteers, musical performers and art receptions. 
We also offer nine story times a week to children ages 0-6 
years old. We routinely have 200 people a week attending 
children's programs. 

The public library really is a great bang for the buck. As 
we are tightening our belts we have also spent time looking 
for ways to make the most of our community resources. Col- 
laboration was the key word at the Chelmsford Public Library 
for FY08. Partnering with the Friends of the Library, volun- 
teers, local agencies, non-profit organizations and businesses 
allowed us to offer unique programming for little or no cost. 
We collaborated with the Chelmsford Schools, town depart- 
ments, the Career Center of Lowell, American Consumer 
Credit Counseling, the Better Business Bureau, The Rotary 
Club of Chelmsford and with the Chelmsford Housing Au- 
thority. 

Collaboration with Family foundation Network, which is a 
program managed by Community Teamwork, Inc. supports 
our Dads and Donuts monthly storytime. CTI also sponsored 
monthly parenting workshops and a series of musical per- 
formances this past spring. One of those programs, the annual

Continued from page 60 

Teddy Bear Picnic was held at 
the Senior Center and attracted 
more than 250 people. 

In addition, volunteer-led 
programs were popular. The 
seven part Financial Fitness 
series with writers from Mot- 
ley Fool and teachers and at- 
torneys as speakers was a huge 
hit. Two members of the Ge- 
nealogy Club gave their time 
| and talents to present programs 
on special topics: "Putting Life 
in a Story" and "Saving the 
Stories". The Friends of the 
Library also funded two pro- 
grams featuring well-known 
Genealogy speakers, Walter 
Hickey and Kevin O'Hara. 
Other popular volunteer-led 
programs include conversation circles and reading and writing 
groups. 

We are also working on two projects with town depart- 
ments, community organizations and Chelmsford Telemedia — an 
online community calendar and a town-wide archival project pre- 
serving our community heritage and access to historical records 
and information. 

A member of the Chelmsford Land Conservation Trust pro- 
vided an excellent program on backyard birds as part of the Li- 
brary's 2 nd annual community-wide One Book reading program. 
(The title for the year was Harper Lee's "To Kill a Mocking- 
bird.") 

Other One Book programs included a professor from U-Mass 
Lowell talking on Southern gothic literature and over 25 restau- 
rants and businesses collaborating for a special "Taste of the 
South" evening featuring books, food and drink with a Southern 
theme. The learning continued when two of our monthly featured 
artists offered instructional workshops to the public instead of 
traditional receptions. Other art programs were funded by a LCC 
grant the library received from Chelms- 
ford's Cultural Council last year. 

Over the year, Chelmsford Telemedia 
videotaped many of our programs — 
making them available to people through 
cable broadcasts and as part of the li- 
brary's collection; DVDs are available in 
the library's collection for patrons to 
check out. 

As part of our mission each year, we 
actively try to respond to community 
requests - this often translates into buy- 
ing books or other materials that people 





request, but this year we also responded to patron requests for 
furniture for the patio, a color printer, and better time manage- 
ment software for the public computers, so everyone gets fair 
and equal access to our computers. We also added more chil- 
dren's series books, graphic novels, more audio books and 
Playaways. Playaways are a hot new format - a self-contained 
audio book player. Look for fiction and nonfiction titles for 
adults, teens and children. 

We also work hard at partnering with the schools. Although 
the public would expect it, not all school systems are as col- 
laborative as ours. One example of this is the 6th grade project 
on Ancient Civilizations which is the students' first major re- 
search paper. The heads of the Children's, Teen and Reference 
Departments visit the McCarthy and Parker schools to show 
how we can support the research project. Another education- 
based activity was the intergenerational program, "What's 
Math Got to Do With It? where tots, teens and adults of all 
ages got into the equation folding and creating tetrahedra. The 
entire community participated, filling the library with colorful 
geometric shapes. 

We look forward to continuing this tradition of making the 
most of our community's resources. Our Reference Department 
recently developed a new tool that will help identify and chan- 
nel volunteers to not just the library but to any town depart- 
ment, community group or non-profit organization that wishes 
to publicize its volunteer needs. Check it out at 
www.chelmsfordvolunteers.org 

This past year also marked the Leap Day birthday of the 
Chelmsford Public Library. The library addition opened on 
February 29 th , 2000. We celebrated eight years in the new 
building at our 2 nd birthday bash with cards, cake and a birth- 
day song. Happy Birthday Chelmsford Public Library!

The Chelmsford Veterans' Services 
Office provides short-term financial 
assistance to eligible veterans and 
their families as mandated by Massa- 
chusetts General Law Chapter 115. 
The Chapter 1 15 program is a public 
assistance program run by the State. 
We can assist eligible, needy veterans 
with a monthly allowable grant and 
some medical coverage. The amount 
of assistance depends on the budget 
standards set by the Commonwealth 
of Massachusetts Department of Vet- 
erans' Service. The State will reim- 
burse Chelmsford for 75% of author- 
ized benefits paid out. 
In fiscal year 2008 Chelmsford paid 
out $60,913.00 to 8 veterans and 5 
widows eligible for chapter 115 assistance. The Town will get 
back $45,685.00 of that amount. This is the maximum 75% 
reimbursement allowed by the State. In FY'08 we had more 
veterans / widows seeking assistance for longer periods of 
time. The Chapter 1 15 program provides a limited safety net 
for veterans from the State & Town. 

Federal VA benefits can have a more significant impact for the 
veteran and the community. The number of veterans eligible 
for Federal VA benefits is always a small percentage of the 
total number of veterans in the community. Almost all VA 
benefits must be applied for - they are not automatic. This of- 
fice helps any Chelmsford veteran dealing with the VA claims 
process. The claims may be an initial filing, reopen a disability 
claim for increase, appeals on denied claims, hearings with the 
Regional Office or hearings before the Board of Veterans Ap- 
peals. The VA periodically takes a 'snapshot' of the total 
amount of Federal Veterans benefits that flow into a commu- 
nity. The last look was in mid 2007. The amount of Federal VA 
money that flows annually into Chelmsford is $3,219,468.00 as 
disbursed to 406 veterans and 59widows/ surviving family 
members living in Chelmsford. 

This office also processes applications for State Veterans' Bo- 
nuses and Annuities, the latest being the 'Welcome Home Bo- 
nus'. Also there have been some significant positive changes in 
some of the property tax exemptions effecting veterans and 
their surviving spouses (specifically clause 22D). Working 
with the Chelmsford Assessors office we are attempting to 
identify the eligible homeowner taxpayers in Chelmsford. 
Our office coordinates the Chelmsford Veterans Day Obser- 
vance, which is always held at Veterans' Memorial Park on the 
1 1 th of November at 1 1:00 AM (1 1/1 1 at 1 1). All are welcome! 




Veterans' Services is located at Town Offices, 50 Billerica 
Road. The office is open Monday through Friday 9:00AM - 
5:00PM, evening hours are also available. If you are unable to 
visit the office, please call and I would be happy to schedule a 
home visit. 978-250-5238, rjackson@townofchelmsford.us . 
Thank you.

Executive Director 



The Chelmsford Housing Authority continues to make 
progress in meeting the needs of families, seniors and the dis- 
abled in need of affordable housing. This year, the Chelmsford 
Housing Authority has been awarded over $8 million dollars to 
develop a new 37 unit supportive housing site for seniors. This 
will be the final building constructed at the North Village Cam- 
pus located behind the Chelmsford Senior Center. 

The Massachusetts Institute for Social and Economic 
Research has estimated that by the year 2010 the over 60 popu- 
lation in Chelmsford will increase by 71.6% while the overall 
state projection is only at 19.1%. But even more disconcerting 
is the fact that the over 80 and 90 population in Chelmsford is 
increasing exponentially at the rate of 400% by the year 2020. 
As a graying community, consideration needs to be focused on 
how Chelmsford can most effectively meet the housing and 
health care needs of the Chelmsford senior population by fun- 
damentally changing how services are organized and delivered. 
We must continue to seek new partners to expand the service 
models already in existence to allow Chelmsford seniors to age 
in place. 

Currently, there are over 100 applicants on the waiting 
list for senior housing. Our senior housing locations are lo- 
cated at McFarlin Manor - 10 Wilson Street, Chelmsford Arms 
- 1 Smith Street, Delaney Terrace - 8 Sheila Ave and North 
Village - 20 Sheila Ave. The Authority has begun the process 
of developing an additional 37 units of senior housing off 
Sheila Ave to complete our senior campus and provide addi- 
tional supportive services to the residents. We currently offer 
case management, adult day health, beauty parlors, clustered 
home care services, meals programs and in come locations 24/7 
staffing. 





The Section 8 Program continues to assist over 433 
families/elderly/disabled in the area with rental assistance to 
live in a private apartment. We have placed Section 8 Vouch- 
ers into The Kensington, Princeton Commons and The Mead- 
ows to make the rental units truly affordable. The waiting list 
for one of these units is in excess of three years. The waiting 
list for Section 8 is over 7 to 10 years. We continue to provide 
the Family Self Sufficiency Program and help over 30 families 
improve their education and skills with the hopes of moving 
them towards homeownership. 

The Authority serves as the Management Agent to the 
Town for monitoring the Affordable Homeownership Units and 
Affordable Rental Units located in Chelmsford. We have had 
less than 10 re-sales over the past year. We continue to play a 
significant role in making sure any proposed 40B projects are 
truly affordable to the residents of Chelmsford. 

Members of the staff include David J. Hedison, Ex- 
ecutive Director, Connie Donahue, Deputy Director, Kristin 
Roberts, Finance Manager and twelve additional staff mem- 
bers. Regular meetings are held at McFarlin Manor, 10 Wilson 
Street at 4:00 p.m., on the first Monday each month. The An- 
nual Meeting is the first Monday in May. All meetings are 
open to the public. The Chelmsford Housing Authority Board 
of Commissioners would like to thank the residents of Chelms- 
ford and Town Officials for their continued support and coop- 
eration.

Septase and Wastewater Abatement Program 

In 2008 the Septage and Wastewater Abatement Program con- 
tinued its efforts to clean up our waterways. The Board of 
Health, with the advent of a central sewer system in Chelms- 
ford is now embarking on enforcement activities to insure com- 
pliance with local by-laws which will insure a safe water sup- 
ply. Dye testing, water sampling and issuance of septic system 
permits will continue in all the non-sewered areas until the 
completion of the project. 

Administration and Management 

During FY 2008 income for various services and permits was 
collected for 595 inspections of restaurants, septic systems, 
swimming pools, beaver complaints, day care centers, rental 
housing units, public schools, recreational camps, bathing 
beaches, tanning facilities, massage establishments and all re- 
tail food stores. The Department also responded to emergency 
inspections, nuisance calls and complaints. 

Hazardous Waste and Industrial M astewater Program 

Richard J. Day, Director of Public Health, was reappointed 
Hazardous Waste Coordinator and Municipal Coordinator to 
enforce the '"Right-To-Know law for Chelmsford. The Board 
of Health/Solid Waste held two Household Hazardous Waste 
Collection Days this year which were held on November 2, 
2007 and April 26, 2008. This program has consistently col- 
lected significant volumes of hazardous waste. 

Title V 

The Board or Health is continuing to work on developing pro- 
grams to control the effects of the new Title V regulation on 
the residents still on septic systems until the 100% completion 
of the Town's Sewer Project 

West Nile Virus EEE /Mosquito Surveillance Program 

The Board of Health office is the collection center for three 
towns in the handling of dead birds for the West Nile Virus 
Surveillance Program. The Department received several calls 
for dead birds during mosquito season which were referred to 
the Massachusetts Department of Public Health. Eight dead 
birds were submitted to the lab for testing. The state limited 
the type and number of birds collected this year but increased 
the testing of mosquito pools in the area. One positive bird was 
found early September. Additional monitoring will be done 
until the first frost. 

Emergency Preparedness 

The Chelmsford Board of Health participated in an Emergency 
Dispensing Site Exercise on 1/15/08. The exercise was planned 
and carried out through the Region 3C Coalition and was held 
in Billerica from 5-8 PM. Towns participating were: Billerica, 




Chelmsford, Dracut, Lowell, Tewksbury, Tyngsboro, and 
Westford with Billerica being the lead agency. The purpose of 
the exercise was to take the written Regional Emergency Pre- 
paredness plan and implement it to evaluate if the plan was 
functional in a true event. We utilized the ICS (Incident Com- 
mand System), the scenario of the SNS (Strategic National 
Stockpile) delivery system, a newly devised Communications 
Plan, the MRC (Medical Reserve Corp) as volunteers, as well 
as the local Police to assist us. 

Vaccines Offered were: Influenza, Pneumonia, and Tetanus 
The exercise was advertised both before and after by the local 
newspapers of each participating city or town in the coalition. 
It was an excellent experience with many lessons learned. The 
MDPH evaluated the drill and provided feedback for areas of 
improvement. 

PUBLIC HEALTH NURSE / MANAGER OF HEALTH- 
CARE SERVICES: 

Influenza V accine Program 

The Board of Health sponsored several flu clinics this 
year: 1 ,920 flu vaccine doses were administered at clinics and 
50 persons were immunized with pneumonia vaccine. An ad- 
ditional 4,760 doses were dispensed to nursing homes and phy- 
sicians' offices. Seventeen visits were made to handicapped or 
house-bound residents. A combined total of 6,680 flu doses 
were allocated to the Chelmsford Board of Health by the Mas- 
sachusetts Department of Public Health. 

Immunization Program 

Two hundred four immunizations were administered to adults 
and students in compliance with the Massachusetts Immuniza- 
tion Laws and prophylactically to residents traveling to under- 
developed countries. 

Hypertension Screening Program 

Blood pressure screening for residents are held the first Thurs- 
day of every month from 9:00 to 12:00 at the Board of Health, 
Town Offices. Five-hundred two residents attended the screen- 
ings this year. 

Lead Paint Screening Program 

The Board of Health offers lead paint testing for children be- 
tween the ages of nine months and six years. Residents may 
call the Board of Health at 250-5243 and make an appointment 
with the nurse. Six children were screened for lead paint. 

Cholesterol Screening Program 

The Public Health Nurse tries to offer cholesterol screenings 
throughout the year at the Board of Health office in the Town 
Hall. Appointments are needed and a $15.00 fee is required. 
These screenings are advertised in the local newspapers, local 
cable television and the Town of Chelmsford web page at

Human Services 




Continued from page 64 

www.townofchelmsford.us . A total of 84 screenings were 
done in six clinics from October 2007 through September 
2008. 

Emergency Preparedness 

There is ongoing recruitment for the Upper Merrimack Valley 
Medical Reserve Corp, a volunteer organization that is tapped 
into to obtain volunteers to help out in a disaster situation. A 
booth was set up at the 4 th of July festivities with a 72 hour 
emergency kit raffled off. 

An educational program was held at the Harrington Elementary 
school for the 3 rd and 4 th grade students focusing on what to 
take with you in an emergency. It was titled "The Scavenger 
Hunt Go-Kit". The students were given five minutes to put ten 
things into a backpack and then discuss the rationale for each 
item and which ones would be the best choice. One hundred 
ninety six students and ten teachers received informational 
packets to take home. 

Promotion of 72° Emergency Kits: Residents were able to pre- 
pay to purchase a 72° emergency starter kit. Residents picked 
up the kit at an educational session held at the Chelmsford Po- 
lice Station. Information was presented about the supplies in 
the kit as well as the MRC (Medical Reserve Corp) and its role 
in an emergency. A 72° Emergency Kit is on display in the 
Board of Health Office. 

Health Promotion and Education Programs 

• Campaign for a Healthy Heart 

• Breast Cancer Awareness 

• CPR/AED Certification for Town Employees/ Heart Safe 
Committee for the Community

Communicable Disease Program 

The testing of persons exposed to tuberculosis and those persons 
whose employment require certification of freedom from disease 
is one responsibility of the Public Health Nurse. Twenty-nine 
Mantoux (TB) tests were administered to persons as required for 
pre-employment, college and also to household contacts of ac- 
tive cases in compliance with the Massachusetts Department of 
Public Health regulations. Two hundred TB screenings were 
performed on two separate dates at CHS for students and staff 
who were exposed to an active case of Tuberculosis. Of those 
screened five reacted with a positive result and were referred to 
the TB clinic in Lowell for follow up. Home visits and tele- 
phone calls are made to families of active and some inactive 
cases on a periodic basis to insure understanding of the illness 
and that adequate medical follow-up is achieved. Medical re- 
cords are kept and updated on residents who have a positive 
mantoux (TB) test and are receiving medication prophylactically 
and being followed radiologically at the Lowell Chest Clinic or 
other chest clinics. When necessary, TB testing is done at 
places of business if employees are exposed to an active case of 
TB. 

Communicable Disease Investigation Reports of the 
following diseases were completed from 

October 2007 through September 2008 for the Massa- 
chusetts Department of Public Health:

Glenn Doherty 
Chairman 

The 1996 Spring Town Meeting approved an amendment to 
their General By-Laws be adding Section 13 to Article VII 
entitled Chelmsford Arts and Technology Education Funds 
(ATEF) through the combined efforts of Evelyn Thoren and 
George Ripsom. The purpose of this fund is to provide supple- 
mental funding to support local educational initiatives and pro- 
jects. Thanks to your generosity and support the ATEF has 
received over $70,000 since its inception in November 1996. 
Through investment strategies the committee is currently work- 
ing on investment strategies and researching other financial 
resources in order to create a lasting fund and insure continued 
and consistent awards. 

The ATEF has developed a website that makes all our appli- 
cations and information available at the Town of Chelmsford 
website. Chelmsford is the first town to have a By-Law in 
place that specifies the application process, committee make-up 
and limitations. The Spring 2008 applications and copies of the 
applications along with the By-Law were distributed in January 
2008 to each school through hard copy and email. The commit- 
tee received completed applications by March 3 1 , 2008. 

Teachers and School Councils apply for these funds. Pro- 
ject Summary forms are required from current and previous 
awardees prior to consideration for any additional future new 
projects. Awards were announced at the Board of Selectmen's 
Meeting in June 2008. The next applications will be distributed 
in January 2009 and the deadline for the next academic year is 
March 31, 2009. The concept of using tax check-offs for an 
alternative funding source for education was initiated by Ar- 
lington's veteran Town Treasurer, John Bilafer, under a Home 
Rule Petition many years ago. Since this was accepted, numer- 
ous towns in Massachusetts have adopted the statute Chapter 
60. Chelmsford became involved in the process of adopting 
Chapter 60 through the efforts of Anthony Volpe, a past mem- 
ber of the Chelmsford School Committee. 

Chelmsford uses a separate tear-off sheet in the excise and 
real estate tax bills as the method to elicit voluntary contribu- 
tions to enhance the education of Chelmsford Public School 
students. The collected money does not become part of the 
school budget. The Town Treasurer disperses the funds under 
the direction of the ATEF Committee. Information sheets are 
available in the Town Offices. The contributions that you give 
have and will continue to make a difference in the education of 
our children . . . our future taxpayers.

The Bicycle and Pedestrian Advi- 
sory Committee (BPAC) was 
created in June 2008 to work to 
improve bicycling and pedestrian 
conditions in the Town of 
Chelmsford. The committee will 
strive to create a comprehensive 
view of bicycle and pedestrian 
related activities in the town. The 
long range goal is to make 
Chelmsford more bicycle and 
pedestrian friendly for the mutual benefit of users of non- 
motorized as well as motorized transportation. The BPAC will 
coordinate with other Town boards, departments, and commit- 
tees to have existing and planned construction better accommo- 
date accessibility, bicycles, and pedestrians. It will also monitor 
and advise on the operation, maintenance, and security of exist- 
ing bicycle and pedestrian facilities, including roads and open 
spaces. 

The BPAC thanks the Board of Selectmen and town officials 
for creating this committee and for supporting of the goals of 
this committee.

The Notice to Pro- 
ceed for construc- 
tion of the Bruce 
Freeman Rail Trail 
was signed on Au- 
gust 9, 2007. Con- 
struction began in 
September 2007 on 
the 6.8-mile stretch 
of rail bed from the 
Lowell-Chelmsford 
line to Route 225 in 
Westford. During 




Above: MHD Commissioner Luisa Paiewonsky, 
former representative Carol Cleven, Daphne 
Freeman, Beverly Woods and Tom Michelman 



the Town's 2008 fiscal year, the contractor cleared vegeta- 
tion from the rail bed, removed the rails and ties, demolished 
and reconstructed the superstructures of the four bridges, and 
excavated and installed curbing in the downtown area behind 
Village Square. During the Town's 2009 fiscal year, the 
contractor will excavate, grade, and install the binder course 
of asphalt on the trail. The contractor is expected to begin 
installing railings, fencing, and landscape plantings by sum- 
mer 2009. The contract is scheduled to complete in August 
2009. 

The Town Manager appointed the Bruce Freeman Rail Trail 
(BFRT) Liaison to assist with the handling of matters related 
to construction of the rail trail. The BFRT Liaison is the 
point of contact for questions related to the rail trail and co- 
ordinates with MassHighway's Resident Engineer, the Town 
Manager, and other town and state officials. Some of the 
issues handled during the past year include ensuring the pres- 
ervation of historic railroad mile markers and whistle posts, 
responding to abutter questions and concerns, promoting 
preservation of the tree canopy during the clearing operation, 
and keeping the residents of Chelmsford informed of the 
progress of the rail trail via articles in the Chelmsford Inde- 
pendent and the community newsletter. 

Thank you to residents, businesses, town officials, and board 
and committee members for your support of this project. 
Especially, thank you to the abutters for your forbearance 
during the construction process.

Cynthia McLain

The Chelmsford Cultural Council awards grant funds annually 
to artists and organizations that help build and contribute to the 
vibrant cultural community in Chelmsford. Our Council is 
committed to funding a cross section of local artists, educa- 
tional projects, and collaborative proposals that bring together 
artists, organizations, and local cultural groups in projects that 
serve the residents of Chelmsford. 

State cultural funding through the MCC provides cultural fund- 
ing for 335 local cultural councils with programs in all 35 1 
cities and towns in our state. The MCC is the only state arts 
agency in the nation that provides both funding and local con- 
trol for all its communities. The Council appreciates the sup- 
port it has received from the Town of Chelmsford each year, 
and submits this report to provide a summary of our perform- 
ance and activity. 

Grant Activity 

In 2008, the Council received $8,400 from the MCC, to which 
we added $2,625 of our own funds to support 16 grant applica- 
tions with a total of $1 1,025. This was our largest grant alloca- 
tion to date. We just received notice that we have received a 
10.7% increase in funding from the MCC for 2009 bringing 
that amount to $9,300. 

In 2008, Chelmsford Cultural Council allocated funding to 

support the following grant applications: 

Concert of New England Folk Music 

Christmas and Winter Concerts by the Chelmsford Community 

Band 

Hansel and Gretel: An Intergenerational Opera Production 

The Battle of Bunker Hill 

A Concert of Classical Songs for Children

which included more than 140 entries, drew hundreds of visi- 
tors to see the creative works of our town's talented residents. 

Entries spanned all subjects and locations spanned the globe. 
Entries were taken as far away as China, but a black and white 
photograph of architectural details taken in Lowell, MA struck 
a chord with the judges and won the professional category. 
The five winning photographs in each category were displayed 
at the Chelmsford Public Library during the month of March.

The Chelmsford Cultural Council ventures online: 
The Council is going through an exciting period as it expands 
its membership, community outreach and involvement, which I 
think is evident in our increasing number of grant applications 
and funding. In 2008, we launched a website and a blog to 
help keep residents informed about programs, the grant cycle, 
and more. 

Website: vvww.chelmsfordculturalcouncil.com 

Blog: vvww.chelmsford-cultural-council.blogspot.com 

New International Exchange Grant Program: 
Earlier this year. Council members were seeking ways to sup- 
port international cultural exchanges within our local commu- 
nity with a repeatable program. The result is our first annual 
International Exchange Grant which was approved by the MCC 
and the School Superintendent. 

The program offers Chelmsford 6th teachers the opportunity to 
receive SI, 000 of locally-raised Council funds to facilitate an 
international exchange of cultural knowledge on various levels 
between a 6th grade classroom in Chelmsford School District 
and another classroom located outside the United States. 

Teachers were contacted in early June, and submissions are due 
September 12th. We hope to report on a successful program in 
our summary next year. 

Recruiting and current members: 

The Council successfully recruited 5 new members this sum- 
mer to help keep our increasing activities running smoothly. 
During our August meeting, new members wasted no time in 
volunteering to help with leadership roles (see list below). This 
year, we decided to involve 2 members with each leadership 
role in order to spread responsibility and plan for the inevitable 
unavailability of a Council member at a meeting. 

Sincerely, 

Eric Salerno

During the past year, the Historical Commission has continued 
its Sign Project. This project includes creating the historic in- 
ventories of structures and sites over 75 years old and placing a 
plaque on the structure or site identifying the age and original 
owner. These surveys include a site visit, an architec- 
tural survey, a footprint map, photos and a deed, tax, vital 
statistics and media search. Finished surveys are placed on file 
in the Town and the State Archives. 

The Commission has placed Red Wing Farm on the National 
Register. The Commission continues to work with the Middle- 
sex Canal Association National Registration Request and with 
the Community Preservation Committee. The Commission is 
working with the owner of 1 Academy Street to finalize the 
Preservation Restriction required by Town Meeting. 

The Commission continues to be very involved 
with preservation. We continue to work toward the preserva- 
tion of the North Town Hall and the stabilization of headstones 
in the Hart Pond and West Chelmsford Cemeteries. The Com- 
mission is becoming an information resource for contractors 
and citizens as they rehabilitate their homes and places busi- 
ness. The Commission continues to administer the Demolition 
Delay Bylaw, trying to educate homeowners about their his- 
toric homes. 

The Historical Commission continues to add inventories to our 
data base that is available through the Town's website at 
www.townofchelmsford.us along with a copy of the Demoli- 
tion Delay By-Law, other articles of interest and links to other 
sites of historic interest.

The Historic District Commission functions as a regulatory 
commission for the benefit of the Town. A small area of the 
Town's center section is under the Commission's authority. 
The objective of the Historic District Commission is to provide 
an expeditious application and review relative to the physical 
modifications to the residences and businesses within the Dis- 
trict. Regular meetings are held on the first Monday of each 
month at the Town Offices. 

During fiscal year 2008, the Commission received fifteen (15) 
applications for review and fourteen (14) applications were 
accepted. Two (2) Public Hearings were held and twelve (12) 
public hearings were waived. Nine (9) Certificates of Appro- 
priateness and five (5) Certificates of Non-Applicability were 
issued.

Donald Van Dyne 
Chairman 

The Finance Committee is comprised of seven mem- 
bers who are appointed by the Town Moderator to staggered 
three-year terms. Primarily the Finance Committee is responsi- 
ble for filing a proposed budget and report recommendations to 
be incorporated into the Town Managers proposed budget, 
acted upon by town meeting. 

There are two confirmed Town Meetings each year. 
The Spring meeting begins on the last Monday in April and the 
Fall meeting begins on the third Monday of October. Prior to 
the Spring Town Meeting, the Town Manager presents his pro- 
posed budget and capital improvement program for the upcom- 
ing fiscal year to the Committee. 

Each Committee member acts as a liaison to one or 
more town departments and boards. Committee liaisons meet 
individually with department heads to review department 
budget requests. As individual reviews are completed, full 
Committee meetings are scheduled from December through 
April to hear, analyze and discuss departmental budgets and 
warrant articles. Each department and or independent board is 
given the opportunity to present its budget and respond to ques- 
tions and concerns raised by Committee members. 

Based on its deliberations, the Committee may make a 
recommendation on each line item of the budget and each war- 
rant article. The Finance Committee also has one or more liai- 
sons assigned to all major capital project committees. Project 
liaisons are responsible for keeping the Finance Committee 
informed about a project's progress and financial status.

Turocy ; Jon H. Kurland; Donald F. VanDyne, Chairman; Mary E. Franz: 
& Dwight Haywood. Not pictured. William D. Fulton 



Similar to the budget hearings, the Committee also meets with 
petitioners, proponents and other interested parties, whether in 
support or opposition of proposed warrant articles that are to be 
considered at the Spring or Fall Town Meetings. After consid- 
eration of each warrant article, the Committee votes on its rec- 
ommendation. Should an article have no financial implications 
to the Town, the Committee may vote to make no recommenda- 
tion on the article. 

The Finance Committees report and recommendations are pub- 
lished in the Spring and Fall Warrant Book, which are available 
to residents and Town Meeting Representatives. Additionally, 
the Book contains financial data specific to the Town and other 
useful information. 

In accordance with the Town Charter, the duty of Town Meeting 
Representatives is to keep abreast of town business and review 
materials forwarded to them by the Board of Selectmen and 
Town Manager. It is expected that town meeting members will 
attend meetings of multiple member bodies, attend hearings held 
by the Finance Committee and actively prepare for each session 
of the town meeting. 

The Finance Committee both welcomes and encourages atten- 
dance and participation of town meeting members and residents 
at any meetings. 

Donald Van Dyne, Chairman 

Following a Charter change in the Spring of 2007, the 
appointing authority of the Personnel Board changed from the 
Town Manager to the Board of Selectmen. This five member 
advisory committee is made up of four residents and one em- 
ployee representative elected by non-union employees. The 
Town Manager and Human Resources Director attend the meet- 
ings as well. Since its organization in September 2007, the Per- 
sonnel Board meets to review the current Personnel Rules and 
Regulations, current laws and town practices. It will present its 
findings and recommendations to the Board of Selectmen in the 
fall of 2008.
