Board of Selectmen 

Clare Jeannotte, Chairperson 



To the Residents of Chelmsford: 
It is my privilege as Chairman to provide this report 
to you for 2009. I hope this letter finds you well. 
In April of 2009 we said goodbye to two long-serv- 
ing Selectmen, William Dalton and Philip Eliopou- 
los, who chose to step down after serving for 1 5 
and 12 years respectively. We wish them both well. 
Their legacies are long, with extensive service and 
leadership over many years. We congratulate and 
look forward to working with our newest Selectmen, 
George Dixon and Sean Scanlon, who won the con- 
tested April election filling the vacant seats. 
I would like to begin with a sincere expression of 
appreciation to our Town Manager, Paul Cohen, de- 
partment heads, and all the town employees for their 
continued efforts during these challenging times to 
work to serve the residents. I also want to thank the 
many residents who work tirelessly for our commu- 
nity by serving on various boards and committees. 
The economic downturn in the past year has been 
broadly referenced at the national level as "unprece- 
dented ,, and our local government has suffered along 
with countless other communities. A Special Town 
Meeting in March of 2009 was required to adjust for 
state cuts in local aid due to the continuing decline 
in tax revenues at the state level. We continue to act 
on cost savings, with results in energy costs, solid 
waste disposal costs, and salaries. Nearly all col- 
lective bargaining contracts which expired June 30, 
2009, with the exception of schools and superior 
officers, were renewed for a one year period with no 
cost of living adjustment, with recognition that all 
parties are uncertain of the duration of this downturn, 
and a willingness to return to the bargaining table in 
the coming year with an open view toward current

conditions. To all those employees of Chelmsford 
who sacrificed in these difficult times, a word of 
thanks, and hope for a brightening of these difficult 
circumstances. The collective efforts of the Board, 
the Town Manager, School Committee and Finance 
Committee, via joint meetings, will continue as 
we work to weather this downturn with consensus 
among all stakeholders. I have every confidence that 
we will continue to pull together as a community as 
we face the ongoing challenges. 
The Town has continued to apply for many grant 
opportunities to supplement the decline in revenues, 
primarily federal stimulus programs that are avail- 
able on a short term basis that are preventing further 
budget cuts. As these funds expire, however, we 
will see further reductions to the budgets unless the 
economy turns enough to restore state funding of 
local aid. For these reasons, the Board and Town 
Manager are committed to seek cost control in areas 
of our budget that are not sustainable under Proposi- 
tion 2 V2, especially employee and retiree benefits,

notably health insurance costs. The Town Manager 
followed the procedures required by statute to inves- 
tigate savings available by joining the state health 
Group Insurance Commission plan (GIC) - the same 
insurance our state government employees get - and 
was unable to achieve any agreement with the Public 
Employee Committee, after months of meetings, pre- 
venting savings of up to $1.4M if we had joined GIC 
on July 1, 2009. This cost jobs in Chelmsford, and 
will cost more as stimulus funds end. We must con- 
tinue to work toward a goal of sustainable and fair 
benefits plans and costs to maintain town services. 
After nearly 2 years of effort and study, the Fire/ 
DPW study committee presented their recommenda- 
tions to replace the aging Center Fire Station and 
relocate and consolidate DPW facilities, currently 
housed principally at Richardson Road with several 
satellite locations. The Fire DPW Feasibility Study 
Committee was formed after Town Meeting voted to 
fund a study to address facility needs of these depart- 
ments. As a result of their work, and Town Meeting 
votes at the August 2009 special town meeting, the 
residents had the opportunity at a special election 
on October 6th to consider two ballot questions to 
authorize borrowing, as debt exemptions, to fund 
a new $12 million Center Fire Station building at 
Wilson Street, and $13 million to consolidate DPW 
operations into one location at an existing building 
on Alpha Road. Neither ballot question was passed 
by the voters. Although the Board was split on the 
support of both of these facilities, more affordable 
alternatives to address these critical facility needs are 
now being considered. 

The State provided the Town the ability to impose lo- 
cal option taxes for meals and lodging, and these tax 
increases were also not recommended by the board at 
this time, but were passed by the special town meet- 
ing in August. This will provide up to $400,000 in 
revenues annually, based upon state estimates. 
I wish to comment on the successes and wonderful 
initiatives of the many citizens that continue to make 



Chelmsford a community I am proud to call home. 
These countless citizens and businesses are willing 
to roll up their sleeves, open their personal wallets 
or seek contributions, and deliver results that benefit 
the entire community. Many do their work humbly, 
hidden from public view. It is primarily with the 
help of these citizens that we have been able to begin 
the Chelmsford Farmers Market this summer, and 
to build the Community Garden at Sunny Meadow 
Farm, the recently acquired "Lewis property" open 
space. Town employees are also stepping up to 
donate to the community service needs, through the 
new "1655 Community Service Program" in which 
town employees will endeavor to donate 1655 hours 
of service each year, fully as unpaid volunteers on 
their own time. From the large group of Chelmsford 
Business Association members who work nearly all 
year to raise funds and organize one the largest 4th of 
July parades in New England, to smaller in number, 
but highly capable Land Stewards who maintain and 
watch over our Chelmsford Preservation lands, and 
to countless others, we all owe a debt of gratitude to 
the spirit of our volunteers and the many things that 
simply "get done" and make our Chelmsford ours. 
The Town Hall Utilization Study Committee was 
formed to seek input and propose uses for the Center 
and North Town Halls, each of historic importance 
but currently underutilized. With their report that 
viable community uses exist, efforts will continue 
to determine the fiscal feasibility and timeline for 
restoring each building. 

The Master Plan Committeeis underway in updating 
our last Master Plan from 1996, holding many public 
input sessions as part of that important process. The 
Affordable Housing Plan update committee is being 
reconstituted to prepare a 5 year update to the last 
plan. There continue to be many residents wait- 
ing for affordable housing availability whose needs 
remain unmet. The Bicycle Pedestrian Advisory 
Committee worked diligently toward the successful 
opening of Phase I of the Bruce Freeman Rail Trail

in August 2009. The Permanent Building Com- 
mittee is actively meeting to assess utilization and 
facility conditions at all town owned facilities, which 
should assist in the long range planning process. The 
Energy Conservation Committee has met regularly 
to address one of the largest budget busters, utility 
costs; seeking ways to control these costs through 
energy audits and grant opportunities. The newest 
committees to be formed are the Economic Develop- 
ment Commission and the 2010 Census Outreach 
Committee, which will begin meeting in Fiscal 2010. 
Finally the Board and Town Meeting created an 
Agricultural Commission which will serve as facili- 
tators for encouraging the pursuit of agriculture in 
Chelmsford. 

The August 2009 grand opening of Phase I of the 
Bruce Freeman Rail Trail, after more than 2 decades 
of planning and waiting for funding, represents a 
significant improvement to recreational space in the 
town. The support of the Commonwealth, coupled 
with town management, the Bruce Freeman Rail 
Trail members and the Bicycle and Pedestrian Advi- 
sory Committee members, and countless citizens and 
officials over many years are all to be applauded for 
their tenacity to see this to fruition. 
Using Community Preservation Act funds, Town 
Meeting approved the purchase of land on Pond 
Street, restoring beach access to Hart Pond to the 
residents in perpetuity. 

Greener Chelmsford Initiative, a new program 
begun by Selectmen Wojtas and Dahlberg, provides 
awards and recognition to local businesses which 
achieve specific milestones to save energy, helping 
to save money and reduce our carbon footprint. The 
Town of Chelmsford was proud to be one of the first 
recipients of this award! The program is growing, 
with a volunteer director and several recipients of the 
honor, all at no cost to the taxpayer. 
The hard work of our legislative delegation is ap- 
preciated. Our current challenges will continue until 
the economy improves, our legislature finds a way 
toward more equity in school funding, and unsus- 



tainable costs are reduced. As our 2010 census 
approaches, let us remember that the once-a decade 
possibility of returning our town to less than four 
representatives who focus predominantly on our 
citizens needs is going to be available. 
I continue to have great pride in our wonderful com- 
munity and great faith in our residents, employees 
and elected and appointed officials. Our history indi- 
cates the ability to pull together when facing uncer- 
tainty and support each other as a community. 
In this spirit, I remind all citizens that our govern- 
ment is your government; we are all here to serve 
you, the residents, and welcome your participation. 
The best results come when the process includes 
many. There are always opportunities to participate 
in large or small ways. Committee openings are 
publicized at the start of each Board of Selectmen 
meeting, and on the town website. Six town meeting 
representatives are elected for each of nine precincts 
every April. Consider becoming involved to help 
better your community as we embark on a year filled 
with challenges and opportunities. 

Sincerely, 

Clare L. Jeannotte, Chairman 
Chelmsford Board of Selectmen

Weathering the Economic Recession 
Fiscal Year 2009 may likely be best remembered for 
the severe financial recession that gripped the coun- 
try and the Town of Chelmsford. The collapse of the 
national housing and credit markets contributed to what 
some have characterized as the nation's largest eco- 
nomic downturn since the end of World War II. The 
Town began the fiscal year with a S98 million budget. 
By the end of the fiscal year, the budget was reduced 
by S 1 . 1 million and the Town appropriated S 1 . 1 million 
from the Stabilization Fund to operate at a lower level 
of service provision. 

The impacts of the national economic recession be- 
came apparent in Massachusetts in September as state 
revenue collections dropped significantly. By late 
January of 2009, the Governor decided that the worsen- 
ing State fiscal crisis necessitated a mid-fiscal year re- 
duction in local aid. The Town of Chelmsford received 
a reduction of S6 15,270 in state aid. By the end of the 
fiscal year, the continuous decline in State revenues led 
to the Governor's decision to fund municipal fourth 
quarter Chapter 70 education local aid payments from 
federal stimulus funding. 

A special town meeting was held on March 9, 2009 
to balance the Town budget. General Government 
operations were reduced by S500.000 and the School 
Department's budget was reduced by S600,000. 
Personnel reductions took place in the Assessors', 
Tax Collector's and Town Clerk offices; police and 
fire positions were eliminated, along with reduc- 
tions in overtime expenditures, thereby resulting in 
fewer police officers on patrol and the closing of 
one of the five fire stations; library positions, ma- 
terials, and hours of operation were curtailed. The 




School Department eliminated three central admin- 
istration positions; reduced expenditures on books, 
supplies, and technology; curtailed custodial services, 
and terminated fourteen positions. By the end of the 
year, the total number of full-time equivalent positions 
employed by the Town had been reduced by 46, which 
was an almost 5% reduction. 

State Reimbursement for the High School Renovation 
and Expansion Project 

The Town received $8,739,542 in reimbursement from 
the Massachusetts School Building Authority for the 
S18 million Chelmsford High School renovation and 
expansion project. The high school construction was 
the largest portion of the S31 million high school and 
middle schools project that was approved by the voters 
in 2004. The Town qualified for a 56.3 1% reimburse- 
ment rate. The School Building Committee, School 
Committee, Town Accountant, and other town officials 
worked diligently over the past five years to make this 
project a reality and to obtain reimbursement for the 
Town.

Capital Investment 

Despite the difficult financial times, the Town main- 
tained its investment in its capital facilities and infra- 
structure. The high school stairwell was reconstructed 
at a cost of $679,700. Enclosing the stairwell im- 
proved the flow of students throughout the building 
during periods of inclement weather. This project also 
improved security at the high school by reducing the 
number of outside entrances into the building. 

At the 2009 Spring Annual Town Meeting, the Town 
appropriated $230,000 in Community Preservation 
Funds to acquire 80,000 square-feet of land on Pond 
Street from the South Chelmsford Village Improvement 
Association. This purchase permanently protected the 
beach area along Heart Pond. The Town also obtained 
a boat launch, as well as a parking area and additional 
open space across the roadway. This valuable piece of 
open space directly abuts the newly-constructed Bruce 
Freeman Rail Trail. 

Construction of the Bruce Freeman Rail Trail pro- 
gressed throughout Fiscal Year 2009. Although not 
completed until August 2009, throughout the past 
fiscal year many residents and visitors to the com- 
munity were walking and bicycling along the partially 
completed 5.2 mile Chelmsford portion of the rail trail 
during the construction process. 



December 11. 2008 Ice Storm 

A severe ice storm hit the Town beginning on the eve- 
ning of December 11, 2008. By the following morn- 
ing, the resulting tree damage closed or obstructed 40% 
of the town's roadways and left 85% of the residents 
without electricity. Fortunately, a few months prior to 
the ice storm, the Town had subscribed to a telephone 
emergency notification system implementation that 
was able to place 2,000 calls per minute to residents in 
order to keep them aware of the disaster recovery. All 
roads and power was restored within five days follow- 
ing the ice storm. A temporary shelter at the Senior 
Center housed 38 overnight residents during the first 
night of the recovery period. The Town utilized its 
emergency generators to maintain sewerage flow and 
worked with the water districts to maintain water sup- 
ply for residential service and fire suppression needs. 
The Town expended $240,000 for the initial response 
to the ice storm. By the end of the fiscal year, the 
town-wide tree and brush cleanup more than doubled 
this initial response cost. Fortunately, by partnering 
with neighboring communities and our state and fed- 
eral legislative delegation, the Town was able to obtain 
a 75% reimbursement from the federal government. 
The response to the ice storm was a great example 
of the Town's emergency management team pulling 
together to successfully address an unexpected public 
safety crisis. 



The reuse of the Town Hall and the North Town Hall 
came under serious consideration during Fiscal Year 
2009. The Chelmsford Housing Authority made a 
public proposal to convert the two buildings into hous- 
ing for veterans and senior citizens. The strong public 
sentiment against losing the ownership and use of these 
two historic buildings resulted in the Chelmsford Hous- 
ing Authority's withdrawal of its proposal. This was 
followed by the appointment of a five-member Town 
Halls Utilization Study Committee to examine the 
long-term viable operational uses for the buildings. 



Once again, I would like to express my appreciation 
to the members of the Board of Selectmen; the other 
Town officials, employees, and volunteers of the Town; 
Chelmsford residents; and the business community for 
their support during the past fiscal year to me and to 
the many dedicated people who served this community. 
Although Fiscal Year 2009 was a difficult financial 
period, everyone pulled together to meet the challenges 
that arose before us.

Treasurer & Collector 



FY2009 was an exceptionally difficult year as the global 
recession and financial market crisis affected the finances 
of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and the Town 
of Chelmsford. In January 2009, Governor Patrick ap- 
proved "9C" reductions in state aid to all municipalities in 
response to sharp declines in state tax revenue collections. 
For Chelmsford, this resulted in a reduction of S6 15,651 
in state aid, the Town's second largest revenue source. 
Local receipts were impacted by a 33% decline in interest 
income earned on the Town's investments due to a series 
of interest rate reductions by the Federal Reserve and a 
4% decline in Motor Vehicle Excise tax revenue from the 
prior fiscal year. Motor Vehicle Excise revenues were 
affected by record declines in new vehicle sales resulting 
from rising unemployment and tighter credit standards. 
The Town's property tax collection rate remained strong 
at 98.7%. 

The Finance Team developed a budget balancing plan for 
FY09 to cope with declining revenues and unforeseen 
expenditure increases for items including a snow and ice 
removal deficit of S620,000 due to stormier than usual 
winter season. The budget balancing plan approved 
by Special Town Meeting on March 9, 2009 included a 
combination of S1.1M of budget reductions across nearly 
every department and a transfer of SI. 1M from the stabili- 
zation fund. Without a stabilization transfer and eight 
months into the fiscal year, S2.2M of budget reductions 
would have resulted in catastrophic reductions or elimina- 
tion of basic municipal services. The approved budget 
reduction plan resulted in the unavoidable mid-year layoff 
of both General Government and School employees. 
The layoffs affected a number of Departments including 
Finance which included the loss of one clerk's position 
in the Tax Collector's Office and one clerk's position in 




Treasurer s Office from left to right: Kim Pease, John Sousa, Anna 
Griffin, Diane Morgan 



the Assessor's Office. In February, we welcomed Diane 
Morgan to the Tax Collector's Office as a result of these 
personnel reductions and reassignment of clerical staff. 

The Town closed FY08 with a general fund balance of 
S3.2M, an increase of S 1 . 1M from the prior year. At 
the end of FY08, our unreserved general fund balance 
increased S1.0M to S2.7M and our stabilization fund 
balance decreased S3 7 1 ,000 to just under SUM. Total 
available reserves of S4.0M, combining the unreserved 
general fund balance and our stabilization fund, were 
approximately 3.7% of budget at fiscal year end. Health 
insurance and pension benefit costs accounted for 15.9% 
of the total FY09 operating budget. 

Stabilization reserves equaled 1.2% of budgeted operating 
revenues, which remains below our fiscal policy mini- 
mum target of 5%. The Finance Team remains commit- 
ted to replenishing the stabilization fund to the 5% level, 
even during difficult economic conditions, to improve our 
financial flexibility and qualify for a bond rating up- 
grade. Toward this end, our entire free cash certification 
of S2.2M for FY08 was transferred into the stabilization 
fund by Town Meeting vote in October 2008.

Chelmsford's unemployment rate at the end of FY08 rose 
to 7.6%, an increase of over 3% from the prior year due to 
the ongoing recession but remained below the statewide 
unemployment rate of 8.7%. Assessed valuation (AV) 
declined 3.4% in FY09 to 5.07 billion due to the soften- 
ing real estate market. Per capita market value remained 
strong at S 1 50,000 per capita. Our tax base remains 
diverse with the 10 largest taxpayers accounting for less 
than 5% of total AV. Income levels remained strong with 
median household income equal to 150% of the national 
level. 

Standard and Poor's considers the Town's overall debt 
burden low at S 1,240 per capita after accounting for state 
reimbursement toward a portion of school debt and sewer 
debt self-support through betterments and user charges. 
Amortization of existing debt is rapid with more than 
70% of principal being retired within 10 years. Debt 
service expenditures remain manageable with FY09 debt 
service accounting for 11.9% of total FY09 expenditures. 

The Town issued 52,457,090 of General Obligation 
Bonds in June to permanently finance our FY 10 Capital 
Improvement Plan and take advantage of the low interest 
rate environment. The Town also renewed S6, 399, 347 of 
short-term Bond Anticipation Notes (BANs) for our sec- 
ondary school construction and renovation project while 
awaiting reimbursement from the Massachusetts School 
Building Authority for the McCarthy Middle School 
project. 

Standard and Poors (S&P) reaffirmed the Town's bond 
rating of AA- in June 2009 for the sale of our bonds with 
a stable outlook. S&P assigned a rating of SP-1 + for the 
sale of our BANS, which indicates that the Town pos- 
sesses a very strong capacity to pay debt service on these 
notes. S&P maintained the Town's bond rating in con- 
sideration of the Town's high wealth and income levels, 
continued growth of the tax base, and moderate overall 
debt burden. 

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 1st 
of the fiscal year. It has been the policy of the Assessors 
to review the valuations annually in order to maintain ac- 
curate 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. 

Assessing Division 

The real estate valuations through CY 2007 showed signs 
of a real estate market that was still dropping. According- 
ly, valuations on single family homes decreased 4% to 6% 
while condominiums also dropped depending on the com- 
plex. The tax rate for the fiscal year rose from SI 3.50 in 
FY2008 to 14.07 for FY2009. However, the Department 
of Revenue ranks communities hi to low with respect 
to average tax bills. In FY2008 Chelmsford ranked 62 
with 337 communities reporting; in FY2009 Chelmsford 
ranked 73 with 336 communities reporting. 
In addition, the Board is responsible for the administra- 
tion of the 30,000 excise bills that are issued through 
several commitments annually by the Registry of Motor 
Vehicles. 

Like other offices within the Town Hall the Assessor's 
Office had to say goodbye to a valued co-worker and 
friend. Susan McLaughlin was let go due to budget con- 
straints. Susan worked in the Assessors office for a year 
and a half and her loss is felt by her co-workers as well 
as the public. The Board thanks Susan for her service and 
wishes her the best of luck. 

The Board would like to take this opportunity to thank the 
staff of the Assessor's office for all their hard work and 
dedication through this trying year. The additional work 
borne by the remaining staff 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, Kathryn Bianchi, all of whom 
are invaluable to the operation of the Assessors office. 
Additionally, the work performed by our senior workers 
Elaine Myers, Eileen MacDonald and Carol Christian- 
son can not be overstated. Their efforts were an integral 
part of the overall success of the office. This is not only 
measured by the quality of their work but also by their 
positive attitude.

Finance Committee 



Mary Frantz, Chairman 



The Finance Committee is composed of seven 
members who are appointed by the Town Modera- 
tor to staggered three year terms. The Committee 
is the arm of Town Meeting whose primary mission 
is to study and make recommendations on the town 
budget and warrant articles that are to be considered 
by Town Meeting Representatives at the April and 
October town meeting, as well as any Special Town 
Meetings. 

Each Finance Committee member acts as a liaison 
to various town departments and boards. Commit- 
tee liaisons meet individually with department heads 
to review department budget requests. Meetings are 
then scheduled with the full Committee (January 
through March) to hear, analyze and discuss the de- 
partmental budgets and warrant articles. The Com- 
mittee also meets weekly prior to Fall Town Meet- 
ing and as needed during the rest of the year. Each 
department or independent board is given the oppor- 
tunity to present its budget and respond to questions 
and concerns raised by Committee members. The 
Town Manager also presents his proposed budget 
and capital improvement plan along with his budget 
message and supporting documents to the Finance 
Committee. Based on its deliberations, the Finance 
Committee makes a recommendation to Town Meet- 
ing Representatives on the budget. 

The Finance Committee also meets with petitioners, 
proponents and other interested parties with respect 
to other articles that are on the Town Meeting war- 
rant. After consideration of each article the Commit- 
tee votes on its recommendations. In certain instanc- 
es when an article is deemed to have no financial 
implication to the Town, the Committee may vote to 
make "no recommendation".

Finance Committee recommendations are published 
in the Spring and Fall Warrant books which are sent 
to Town Meeting Representatives and available to 
all residents. Additionally, the books include other 
financial data specific to the town. 

Finance Committee members are also assigned as 
liaisons to the Capital Planning Committee and other 
major capital project committees. Liaisons are re- 
sponsible for keeping the Committee informed about 
a project's progress and financial status. The Com- 
mittee Chairman and Vice Chairman are members 
of the town "leadership team" which also includes 
the Town Manager, the Superintendent of Schools 
and representatives of the Board of Selectmen and 
School Committee. In addition, the Committee par- 
ticipates in periodic joint meetings with the Board of 
Selectmen and School Committee. 

Fiscal year 2009 was a busy year for the Finance 
Committee in light of the town's deteriorating fiscal 
situation and the scheduling of several Special Town 
Meetings to address required budget adjustments.

Finance Committee 



Four year member William Fulton left the Commit- 
tee in Fall 2008 and in January Timothy Mcllvenna 
was appointed to the Committee. In November most 
members attended the annual meeting of the Associ- 
ation of Town Finance Committees, where speakers 
and workshops provide information on the state and 
local financial situation. Some members also at- 
tended Spring workshops dealing with budget issues 
in the current economic environment. 

The Committee would like to thank clerk, Pamela 
Morrison who keeps us on track and does the bulk of 
the work in preparing our warrant books. We would 
also like to thank Town Manager Paul Cohen for 
his regular attendance at our meetings and frequent 
updates on the town's financial situation.

Personnel Board 



Ellen DiPasquale, Chairman 



The Personnel Board, made up of 4 community 
members, and an employee representative, elected by 
the non union employees, meets on a monthly basis 
along with the Town Manager and Director of Hu- 
man Resources to assist in reviewing current person- 
nel rules, regulations, laws, and town practices. 

In this past year, the Board reviewed the Town's 
Personnel Rules and Regulations, and made adjust- 
ments and updates to the wording, in order to comply 
with current law. The Board also suggested a change 
to the Vacation and Sick Time policies, which were 
combined into one Paid Time Off Policy. The Board 
met with Town employees to review the proposed 
changes, and to address any questions or concerns. 
In addition, the Town implemented a Short Term, 
and Long Term Disability Plan in order to support 
the new PTO policy. The Personnel Board met with 
the Board of Selectmen for approval of the changes. 

The Personnel Board had also worked with the Per- 
formance Review Procedure to ensure that the tools 
being utilized were most effective in setting achiev- 
able objectives and measuring employee perfor- 
mance. The Personnel Board also initiated a review 
of the Town's job descriptions and will continue that 
project in the upcoming year.

* Fiscal Year ** Calendar year 

The year 2008 was a major election year. During 
the actual calendar year, four elections took place. 
During the fiscal year beginning July 2008 to June 
2009 there were three elections. The first was the 
September 16, 2008 State Primary in which 3,554 
voters participated. The next election was Novem- 
ber 4, 2008 this was the Presidential Election, where 
19,583 voters participated, which was an 86% turn- 
out. There were 2,294 absentee ballots processed by 
this office, 1,222 were mailed out, and 1,072 voted 
in person at the Town Clerk's Office. On Monday 
November 3rd (which was the deadline to vote ab- 
sentee) between the hours of 8:30 am to 12 noon 140 
voters alone voted in the office. This election was an 
historical one because of the candidates running and 
the record voter turnout across the USA. The next 
election was the 2009 Annual Town Election of April 
7th in which 4,165 voters participated. 
As far as Town Meetings, there were four sessions 
held in the fiscal year. Beginning with the Annual 
Fall Town Meeting on October 20, 2008, it finished 
in one session and there were eighteen articles acted 
on. There was one night of a Special Town Meeting 
held on March 9, 2009 there were three articles acted 
on. Then the Annual Spring Town Meeting began on 
April 27, 2009 and adjourned and finished on April 
30th, there were a total of seventeen articles acted 




on. Due to limited space and printing cost, copies of 
the minutes from any of these meetings and the elec- 
tion results, are available in the Town Clerk's Office. 

In February of 2009 the Town Clerk's Office 
staff was reduced due to budget constraints. One 
position was completely eliminated which had been 
held by Mary Jane Comeau, who had been a mem- 
ber of my staff since November of 2002. I thank her 
for her years of service. Mary Jane was an asset to 
this office and will be greatly missed. Also another 
a sign of the times, a second position was reduced 
from 37.5 to 25.5 hours. The office goal is to keep 
our sense of humor and to serve and assist the public 
to the best of our ability and during these difficult 
times. 

My heartfelt thanks to all the election workers and 
the personnel of the DPW, Police and School for 
enabling the election day process to run smoothly. 
It begins with the small army of 168 precinct work- 
ers that consists of two shifts. This is a great group 
of dependable people. The first shift starts at 6 AM 
and the second shift ends at 10:30 PM. Thanks also 
to the Maintenance and Custodian workers that set 
up the five locations and transport machines back

to Town Office Building. The DPW workers who 
appeared at the Town Office Building 5 AM on Elec- 
tion morning and transport the ballots and machines 
to the precincts. The Police Department beginning 
with the Chief and Deputy. Including all the Officers 
who work with myself, staff and precinct workers at 
the polls, during the day and at the end of the elec- 
tion night. Lastly, to my staff of Raymonde Legrand, 
Bernadette Gilet and Mary Jane Comeau your dedi- 
cation and help is greatly appreciated. 
Sincerely, 

Elizabeth L. Delaney

Evan Belansky, Community 
Development Director 



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

Specifically, the Department continued to manage the 
Town's economic development program and with the 
assistance of a consultant issued a draft 2009 Eco- 
nomic Development Plan. The Department provided 
technical assistance and support to the Town Man- 
ager and Board of selectmen during the discussions 
to attract several new businesses to Town; ultimately 
resulting in the approval of a Tax Increment Financ- 
ing Plan with L-l Identify Solutions. 

The Department worked with the Town Manager 
and Board of Selectmen successfully on the Town 
Meeting vote to adopt Chapter 43 D for purposes of 
designating 25 Katrina Road as a Priority Develop- 
ment Site and receiving a technical assistance grant 
in the amount of $60,000 for purposes of moving this 
site towards redevelopment. 

The Department, working in partnership with the 
Merrimack valley Housing Consortium and the 
Town of Billerica, submitted a Community Develop- 
ment Block Grant to the Department of Housing & 
Community Development for purposes of establish- 
ing a housing rehabilitation program. 




The Department also provided technical and ad- 
ministrative services to two special committees; the 
Master Plan committee and the Billboard zoning 
committee.

Planning Board 

S. George Zaharoolis, 
Chairman 



The Planning Board is responsible for insuring that 
the development of land in Chelmsford meets the cri- 
teria set forth in State and local land use regulations. 
The process involves the review of lot divisions, 
definitive 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 FY 2009, the Planning Board heard proposals for 
two major site plans in the Town of Chelmsford: 
the redevelopment of the Skip's Restaurant site at 
1 1 6 Chelmsford Street, and the building of a public 
water supply and water treatment facility at 55 Rich- 
ardson Road. The Planning Board and staff drafted a 
Billboard Bylaw for the Town, which was approved 
and adopted at the Spring, 2009 Town Meeting. An 
amendment to the Zoning ByLaw was also put forth, 
which proposed to transfer the special permit grant- 
ing authority for non-conforming multi-family and 
non-residential uses and structures from the Board 
of Appeals to the Planning Board. This amendment 
was approved at the Fall 2008 Town Meeting. 
The Board undertook the task of reviewing the 1997 
Master Plan. A Master Plan Committee was formed 
and has held regular meetings receiving input from 
Town departments, boards and committees, along

Master Plan Committee 



James Lane, Chairman 



The town of Chelmsford has a long history of Master 
Planning which spans more than forty years. Our first 
Master Plan was written in 1 963 followed by updates 
in 1975, 1986 and 1996. Under Massachusetts General 
Laws, Chapter 41, Section 8 ID, the Planning Board is 
required to prepare a Master Plan and must have a major- 
ity vote of the Planning Board approving the completed 
document before implementation. 

A Master Plan will help to establish how the community 
wants to change over the next 10 years. The Plan will 
set goals and objectives to manage growth and change, 
provide for desired, orderly and predictable development, 
protect environmental resources and open space, strength- 
en local identity through various initiatives in the area 
of cultural, historical, housing and economic develop- 
ment, create a framework for future policy decisions and 
provide guidance to residents, local boards, permitting 
authorities, and the business community. 

The 2009 Master Plan Committee is made up of nine 
members and in partnership with Northern Middlesex 
Council of Government (NMCOG) is approaching the 
halfway point of the Master Plan update process. In Feb- 
ruary 2009 the committee finalized details of the Master 
Plan consultant's contract with NMCOG and planned 
for the initial public input and visions for Chelmsford's 
future. During the first six months, the committee has 
undertaken an extensive public input process in which 
hundreds of Chelmsford residents have participated. The 
input sessions have been entitled Vision Quest 2020 and 
have been geared toward specific elements of the plan 
which cover economic development, housing, transpor- 
tation, land use and zoning, open space and recreation, 
infrastructure and facilities, and cultural, historical and 
natural resource issues. The first session held in March at 
the Chelmsford Senior Center received public input on 
what the town residents' vision of the Master Plan should 
be. The evening consisted of an exercise which provided 
the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats, a 
"SWOT" analysis, for the town. Two additional public

input sessions followed, one in May for the business com- 
munity in town, again conducted in SWOT format and 
another in June which focused on the land use/zoning, 
economic development and housing sections. Addition- 
ally in June, the committee completed the Draft Vision 
Statement and Initial Goal Statements which will con- 
tinue as a working document throughout the remainder of 
the process. 

The committee has also conducted joint meetings with 
the Chelmsford Water Districts, Chelmsford Housing 
Authority, Planning Board, Zoning Board of Appeals, 
Board of Selectmen and Town Manager to seek ad- 
ditional comment and input for the Master Plan. In the 
months ahead we will continue to meet with various 
boards, committees, department heads and organizations 
to seek their input and expertise. These joint meetings 
in conjunction with the remaining public input sessions 
scheduled for Thursday, September 17th(Infrastructure, 
Transportation, Service & Facilities) and Wednesday,

During the year two Commissioners resigned, Ruth 
Luna and William Vines who served for four and ten 
years respectively. Beth Logan became a Commis- 
sioner and one position remains open at the writing 
of this report. 

In August, 2009 the Commission hired Conserva- 
tion Agent/Planner Thad Soule to take the place of 
former Conservation Agent Darren Guertin, who 
became the Conservation Agent in Framingham, 
Massachusetts. 

In FY09 the Conservation Commission completed 
its review and update of the Chelmsford Wetlands 
Bylaw. The revised Bylaw was presented to the 
2009 Spring Annual Town Meeting and approved. 




Subsequently, the Bylaw was approved by the State's 
attorney General's Office and became effective in 
August. The Commission is involved in the review 
and update of its Regulations. The Regulations ad- 
dress operating procedures applicable to the Bylaw, 
Conservation Land Management, and Administration 
of the Conservation Commission and Office. Land 
Use Regulations and Enforcement Regulations for 
Conservation Reservations were adopted and were 
posted at all reservations and on the Conservation 
Commission website; http://www.townofchelmsford. 
us/Conservation-Commission.cfm 

With significant help from Phil Stanway and the 
volunteers of the Chelmsford Open Space Steward- 
ship Committee, http://www.thechelmsfordian.com, 
the Commission continues to maintain and make 
improvements to its reservations, town forests, and 
conservation lands.

participated and seven teams completed the entire 
hunt. Due to the positive response, the Winter Tree 
Scavenger Hunt will be held again. 

The majority of the Conservation Commission's time 
was devoted to wetlands protection and enforcement 
of the State and local Wetlands Bylaws. The Com- 
mission reviewed a total of 44 applications under 
the Massachusetts Wetlands Protection Act and 
Chelmsford Wetlands Bylaw during FY09. Of these 
applications 20 were for Requests for Determina- 
tion of Applicability (RDA), 12 were for Notices of

The Community Preservation Act (CPA) provides a 
source of funding for Open Space Preservation, Historic 
Preservation and Affordable Housing. For FY2009, ap- 
proximately $1.36 million dollars was collected under the 
CPA, a combination of property tax surcharge and state 
matching funds. 

Fall Town meeting saw the passage of a warrant article 
that provided $50,000 of funding for Historic Preserva- 
tion at the Barrett-Byam House. The funding was used for 
structural repairs, a new roof for the homestead, climate 
control for the Historic archives museum, and a document 
scanning and storage system. 

At Spring Town meeting, a CPC sponsored warrant article 
authorizing the purchase of a parcel of land off Pond 
Street for $230,000 was unanimously passed. The prop- 
erty closing took place shortly thereafter. The two-acre 
parcel provides the Town with a beach and park on Hart 
Pond, located in South Chelmsford. The Freeman Rail 
Trail abuts the parcel. This is the second land purchase 
using CPA funds, and a great additional recreational asset 
for the Town. 

The Lewis Farm Community Garden started its first sea- 
son this summer thanks to the efforts of the Open Space 
Land Stewards, Phil Jones and a small amount of CPC 
funding. 

The CPC thanks Ruth Luna, Philip Eliopoulos and David 
McLachlan for their years of membership on the Commit- 
tee. The CPC welcomes Beth Logan and Clare Jeannotte 
to the Committee. 

An application for requesting CPA funding for Historic 
Preservation, Affordable Housing, and Open Space and 
Recreation projects is available at the Community Devel- 
opment Dept and on the Town Web Site.

Chelmsford Open Space Stewardship 





The Chelmsford Open Space Stewardship is an indepen- 
dent group of volunteers working with the Chelmsford 
Conservation Commission. It was established in Novem- 
ber 2005 by residents who enjoy hiking, being productive 
and doing things outdoors. While the Conservation Com- 
mission manages and protects open space property in the 
town of Chelmsford, the Stewards maintain and improve 
the trail systems within these open spaces - anything 
from picking up trash and keeping the trails free of fallen 
trees to replacing worn out bridges and kiosks. Stewards 
provide a daily presence and ongoing maintenance so 
these special properties can be enjoyed by all. For more 
information go to the website at

During the past year, the Historical Commission has 
continued to inventory selected historic structures 
and sites over 75 years old, and supplied historic 
marker signs to homeowners within the inventory 
who desired one. These inventories are placed on file 
locally and with the Massachusetts Historical Com- 
mission, and are also placed on-line at http://www. 
chelmsfordgov.com/CHCwebsite/index.htm. This 
website is loaded with historical features and photo- 
graphs of interest to any Chelmsford resident. 
The Commission continues to be very involved with 
preservation, and is an information resource for con- 
tractors and citizens as they rehabilitate their homes 
and places of business. The Demolition Delay 
Bylaw is a tool used by the Building Inspector and 
Historical Commission to educate owners of historic 
properties about options to demolition. An update 
to the Bylaw went into effect on February 25, 2009, 
and is available on the website. 
The Historical Commission is actively planning sta- 
bilization and restoration work on the 1 802 School 
House next to the Forefathers' Cemetery, using funds 
from the Community Preservation Committee (CPC) 
and a private donation from a local caterer. During 
2009, the Historical Commission had representatives 
on the Master Plan Committee, the Town Halls Utili- 
zation Committee, the Permanent Building Commit- 
tee, and the Community Preservation Committee.

Superintendent of Schools 



The membership of the Chelmsford School Committee in 
April of 2008 included; Mrs. Christina Walsh, Chair; Mr. 
Angelo Taranto, Vice Chair; Mr. Kevin Porter, Secre- 
tary; and Members at Large Mrs Kathy Duffett and Mrs. 
Evelyn Thoren. Central Administration for the Chelms- 
ford School Department included Dr. Donald R. Yeoman, 
Superintendent of Schools; Dr. Karen Mazza, Assistant 
Superintendent of Curriculum & Instruction; Mr. Rob- 
ert Cruickshank, Business Manager; Mrs. Dory Toppan, 
Director of Personnel; and Mr. Bruce Forster, Director of 
Educational Technology and Information Services. 

It has been a wonderful year for the students of Chelms- 
ford. They have succeeded academically, athletically, 
musically, theatrically, and scientifically in so many mea- 
sures of success in tests, competitions, and performances. 
Their reputation as students of Chelmsford is nearly 
unmatched across the state. 

Our kids are great students and great representatives of 
our community. Whether their band, orchestra, or choir 
performed at the State House; their athletic, debate, 
DECCA, robotics, or Science Olympiad team competed 
in major competitions across the country, or they per- 
formed community service work as individuals in hospi- 
tals, homeless shelters, or with aged neighbors on their 
street, their reputation as good citizens and future leaders 
is well-known. We are most appreciative of our staff for 
teaching, challenging, coaching, and leading our students 
to success. 

In addition to student academic and extra-curricular suc- 
cess, the District has experienced a variety of additional 
successes in many related areas. Major improvements 
in both the School's and Town's technology capabilities 
have been made due to the collaboration of both School 
District and Town technology staff. The fiber optic ca- 
bling project was successfully completed, and a new data

center was created at the School District's Central Office. 
Joint planning and assistance have made a very difficult 
and complex project a reality. 

The increased network speed has improved efficiency by 
allowing our technology staff to remotely fix computer 
problems. The new network now also makes possible 
real-time parent access to student attendance and grades. 
We look forward to the new network increasing and 
improving communication with parents and with student 
learning. 

Many of you may have noticed that Chelmsford High 
School has a "new face." More than 35 years of dust, 
dirt, and grime were removed from the exterior walls, 
metal surfaces were refreshed with new paint, and win- 
dows were re-caulked. Interior staircases were painted 
and new sidewalks and curbing were installed at the front 
entrance. Energy efficiency was a major priority once 
more this year as boilers were replaced and plumbing 
was updated with new valves in restrooms. The bleach- 
ers, ramps, and the press box in the football stadium were 
replaced for safety and handicapped access.

After 50 years of use and wear, McCarthy's gym was 
nearly completely renovated. The floor was sanded, 
painted, and refinished. Seating was replaced and walls 
were repainted. A new floor-to-ceiling see-through cur- 
tain divider was installed to help make physical education 
classes more safe. These Capital Projects were but a few 
examples of how our collaboration with the Town has 
once again served to improve opportunities for children. 

Last year, because of financial challenges, district ad- 
ministrators spent July through October crafting budget 
cutting strategies to save the Town additional monies. In 
January, those cuts became a reality as the state signifi- 
cantly reduced school funding. For the first time in recent 
memory the School Department made cuts ($591,000) 
during the school year. Only through careful planning 
were those cuts kept as far from student instruction as 
possible. This work was even more difficult due to the 
fact that the District had cut $2.3 million from the budget 
the prior summer vacating more than 40 teaching, sup- 
port, and administrative positions. 

The next six months the District crafted additional cutting 
strategies to be used in case state funding faltered once 
more. The federal government provided $1 .8 million 
in "stimulus" monies. Due to state budget shortfalls, 
however, the school district's actual federal stimulus 
grant was reduced to $916, 871. This money was used to 
restore 14 staff members of the 56 who in addition were 
recently cut. It was also used to replace out-of-date text- 
books, train staff, and improve district science equipment, 
all long-term investments in our community's education 
program. 

District administrators also spent months collecting and 
analyzing data in order to not only reduce expenditures 
and cut staff while maintaining academic integrity, but 
also to redistrict middle school students. This was a con- 
tinuation of the redistricting made necessary due to the 
$2.3 million budget cuts of the prior year resulting in the 
closing of Westlands Elementary School for K-4 educa- 
tion. 



The School Committee received, studied, debated, and 
reviewed many proposals presented by administration on 
financial and redistricting issues. After much parental and 
public comment, the School Committee made many dif- 
ficult decisions on behalf of students. The School Com- 
mittee's continued commitment to excellence in public 
education in our community has been most evident in 
these decisions. 

As we begin the 2009-2010 school-year, we continue 
to be concerned about the ability of the District to meet 
increases in fixed costs despite the significant staffing and 
program cuts the District has made. Federal and state 
laws require that we continuously show improvement in 
student academic achievement. This will be most difficult 
given the current financial situation, but we do not shirk 
from the challenge. 

We look forward to continuing our positive working rela- 
tionship with the Town and with State Legislators to pro- 
vide the supports and services our students and our town 
require and deserve. Although major financial challenges 
are ahead, we look to the future with optimism as we 
work together with the Town to improve our community.

Nashoba Valley Technical High School 




Dr. Judith L. Klimkiewicz, 
Superintendent 



Nashoba Valley Technical High School is a regional tech- 
nical 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 impressive reputation for producing com- 
munity leaders as well as providing community service. 
With an enrollment of approximately 700 students from 
seven communities, Nashoba Valley Technical High 
School offers career preparation in 16 technical programs.

Three 12-week trimesters. Eight 45-minute periods set in 
a block schedule, five days per week. The school schedule 
alternates one week of academic classes with a week in a 
career-technical area for grades 9 through 12. 

The Year in Review 

For the 2009-2010 school year Nashoba has, as most 
other districts, had to tighten our belts while still striving 
to achieve our district goals. Thanks to our ten year plan 
that began in 1999-2000 we were able to achieve "all" 
our facility, technology, and instructional goals with total 
fiscal responsibility. This year all our classrooms are 
equipped with direct video, clickers, LCD projectors, web 
casting capability, and smart boards in every room. This 



enables every teacher to showcase 21st century teaching 
skills to all of our students as they prepare them for college 
and career. 

We have maintained our focus on being fiscally and en- 
vironmentally responsible by installing this fall a 100 km 
solar voltaic unit on our roof to reduce the cost of our 
electricity in a "green" way. Additionally, we installed on 
our new student constructed concession stand a solar voltaic 
unit to provide all heat and electricity. Both these projects 
were completed at "no cost" to district taxpayers and were 
fully funded through grants. 

Nashoba continues to embrace educational opportunities 
for our teachers as well by serving as a satellite campus for 
many local colleges' graduate programs. 

As we enter a time of economic uncertainty I can assure you 
that at Nashoba Valley Technical High School students will 
still receive a technical education of the highest quality with 
the most current state-of-the-art equipment.

Special Academic Programs 

Advanced Placement Honors and College Preparatory 
courses are available in all core subjects. Foreign lan- 
guage and additional 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. Many Nashoba stu- 
dents 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 institu- 
tions as MIT, Ithaca College, Emerson College, Boston 
University, and University of Massachusetts, among oth- 
ers. 

Student A ctivities 

Nashoba sponsors an extensive program in intra-scho- 
lastic sports including varsity teams in ten 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 Decisions, Skills USA, Student Lead- 
ership, Peer Mediation, and many special interest clubs. 
No user fees are imposed on any sport, school sponsored 
club, or activity.

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 dis- 
trict to work on community service projects that have 
been approved and selected for their benefit to the com- 
munity 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 view- 
ing Nashoba students at work and having a major project 
completed without expending limited town resources for 
capital improvement.

Public Safety 




Police Department 

James F. Murphy 
Chief of Police 



I respectfully submit the FY 2009 Annual Report for the 
Police Department. At the present time, the department 
has a sworn complement of 49 officers, 9 public safety 
dispatchers, 3 clerical support personnel, 1 custodian and 
1 mechanic. In total, over 32,000 calls for service were 
handled by the department. 

The philosophy at the police department continues to 
emphasize community policing strategies and initiatives. 
Officers are encouraged to work in partnership with the 
community, to address and resolve issues of concern, 
and improve the overall quality of life for those that live, 
work or visit Chelmsford. 

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 paramount importance in maintaining order, 
and providing an overall sense of safety and security 
throughout the town. 

The severe economic climate proved to be an extreme 
challenge for the police department in FY 09. While we 
started the fiscal year with 5 1 sworn officers, we were 
forced to reduce our complement at mid-year by two 
officers. We were able to reduce these patrol officer 
positions through attrition however, we were also forced 
to eliminate a principal clerk's position as well as a part- 
time custodial position. 

The reduction in police personnel resulted in less patrol 
officers being assigned on the shifts. We saw an increase 
in the number of shifts that were only staffed with four 
patrol officers. With less patrol officers, we were forced 
into a more reactionary type role, as opposed to carrying 
out proactive problem solving policing strategies. 
Regardless of our staffing levels, the police department 
will continue providing the best possible service to the 
people of Chelmsford, and will seek new and innovative

ways to meet the many challenges that face us. 

In continuing on the path to statewide certification, newly 
revised rules and regulations were issued to all sworn 
members of the department. These rules and regulations 
are in compliance with standards set and adopted by the 
Massachusetts Police Accreditation Commission. The 
next step of the process calls for a complete and thorough 
review of all department policies and procedures. 

The department was able to re-establish its Canine Unit 
in October 2008 due to generous contributions from 
the general public. After the death of K-9 Officer David 
Leo's canine partner, Andy, in July, donations in excess of 
$9,000 were received that allowed us to quickly purchase 
and train a new canine. Our new canine, Axel, has proved 
to be a fast learner, and has been trained in tracking and 
drug searching techniques. 

Patrol Officer Nicholas Ziminsky was re-activated for 
military service as of April 27, 2009, as a member of the 
Coast Guard Reserve. His deployment is expected to last 
between six months and one year. 
Finally, the department continues to mourn the loss 
of Patrol Officer Sean F. Swift, who passed away 
unexpectedly on September 8, 2008, after more than 10 
years of service with the police department.

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 Control 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 responsibility to insure that their pets are prop- 
erly vaccinated and licensed. 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, conservation lands, and the bike path. 

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 assistance over the 
last year.

FY 2009 ANNUAL REPORT 



Public Safety 




Fire Department 

John E. Parow 
Fire Chief 



Fiscal year 2009 was a very difficult year for the 
Chelmsford Fire Department due to the continued poor 
financial situation of the Town and the Commonwealth. 
Unfortunately, we were force to close the South Fire 
Station (Engine 5) for the entire fiscal year and the station 
will continue to be closed during FY 10. The decision 
to close this one station on a permanent basis was based 
on call volume, accessibility and continuity of services. 
Staffing levels remain at very low level with a minimum 
level of one Captain and eight firefighters per shift (as 
compared to a minimum staffing level for the department 
in 1990 of one Captain and fourteen firefighters). The 
outlook for fiscal 2010 is not any better and we anticipate 
further cutbacks during the years when all the final 
numbers are in for the Town and from the State. 

To compound things, fiscal year 2009 proved to be the 
busiest year ever for the Chelmsford Fire Department. 
Total emergency calls for FY 09 were 5203 up 2 18 calls 
over last year. Medical emergency calls accounted for 
over half the calls at 2,814 fire calls totaled 179. Trends 
seemed to remain constant with emergency medical aid 
calls increasing again this year by 47 calls. In addition, 
fire calls were up this year by 24 calls. 

The Department applied for and received a federal grant 
this year to illuminate the rear of all Engines, the Quint 
and Rescue Truck with reflective stripping and amber 
arrow lights. This new illumination system (and NFPA 
standard) will help to reduce the chance of rear end 
collisions while we provide emergency service on the 
highways. In addition, the department received a state 
grant to purchase reflective vest for all firefighters while 
operating on a roadway as required under a new Federal 
ANSI Standard. Hopefully, this will created a safer 
working environment on the highways as traffic related 
accidents are the third leading cause of firefighter deaths 
nationwide. 




Brian Stanton, a seasoned firefighter, retired during this 
past year with over 28 years of service to the Town. 
The department wishes him a long and enjoyable 
retirement. Dave LeFebvre transferred to the Westford 
Fire Department after working in Chelmsford for three 
years. Unfortunately, we were unable to fill either of these 
positions because of the looming budget crisis. 

We continue to experience major structural problems with 
the apparatus floor at the Center Fire Station. Although 
the floor has been stabilized with 13 wooden pillars, the 
fix only serves as a temporary repair and buys us a little 
time. The Fire/DPW Building Committee has concluded 
their two year study and determined that a new Center 
Fire Station should be built and located at the corner of 
Chelmsford and Wilson Street. I urge the town residents 
to support the funding of this proposal. 

Although we do understand the fiscal restraints associated 
with the town budget, the cut backs over this year 
(compounded by those in the past few years) have made it 
very difficult for the fire department to meet its mission of 
protecting life and property. The reduction in man power 
and the closing of a fire station has created an increased 
risk to the residents of Chelmsford and the firefighters 
alike. During this year we have seen response times 
increase and manpower shortages while operating at 
emergency scenes. It is our hope that when the financial

picture brightens, these positions will 
be restored and all five fire stations 
will again be open. 

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

ed to 80 inches. The staff oversees all town personnel in 
addition to 40 hired trucks throughout each storm. 

In addition to their routine snow removal process, High- 
way Division personnel, assisted by the Engineering 
Division, Parks Division, Sewer Division, Facilities 
Department, and Cemetery Department worked hard deal- 
ing with making roads passable for emergency & utility 
vehicles by clearing fallen trees and debris from roadways 
throughout town throughout the major December 2008 
Ice Storm. 

Throughout the months of April & May, the Highway 
Department personnel, assisted by other DPW divisions 
and town departments picked up brush/debris left at curb- 
sides throughout town by residents. During this clean up, 
fallen trees/debris were cut up and cleared from roadways 
which had been cleared off roadways in December. 

The Highway Division Clerk completed necessary appli- 
cations for the Highway Division and Cemetery Depart- 
ment in a combined effort with the Engineering/Sewer 
Department Clerk for FEMA reimbursement for both the 
initial clean up and brush/debris clean up for the Decem- 
ber 2008 ice storm. The Town is due to collect $369,000 
from FEMA. 

The Highway Division Clerk maintained all financial 
records needed for the reporting, tracking, and payment of 
all vouchers connected with the highway budgets - in- 
cluding general expenses, salaries, snow and ice, Massa- 
chusetts Chapter 90 funding (road construction or repair), 
street lighting and capital expenditures. 

Sewer Division 

The Sewer Division continued to expand this year with 
the addition of 262 new sewer connections. In April, 
Sewer Operations relocated from unit A to unit C at 5 
Kidder Rd. providing an additional 4000 sq. ft. of much 
needed space. This space is rented as there is no existing 
Town building available for this use. 
Major projects included: 

SCADA remote monitoring software upgrades at 15 




pump stations 

Major pump rebuilding at 10 pump stations 

Relocating Sewer Operations 

The Sewer Division now maintains 33 pump stations (in- 
cluding the newest at Bartlett Street, and De Wolf Drive) 
and 2 metering stations. 

The office staff handles all sewer betterments, sewer bill- 
ing, phone inquires, concerns and other related correspon- 
dence. They also provide clerical support to the Sewer 
Commission. 

Public Buildings Division 

As of August, 2008 we employ two part-time Building 
Attendants to assist with various building maintenance 
needs at the Old Town Hall and Town Hall as well as 
opening and closing of these buildings as needed. 

Cleaning of the two buildings has been outsourced to 
Jani-King, a private cleaning contractor.

Public Facilities - Energy Conservation Committee 



In 2009, the Chelmsford ECC had two major 
achievements, namely: 

The Chelmsford Adams Library Solar Power Project 
which resulted in the installation of nearly 8.4KW 
DC panels atop the library at no cost to the town. 
The system was funded by MTC grants as well as 
monies that National Grid has been collecting on 
utility bills for many years under state mandate. The 
system is expected to provide an estimated 9000 
KWhr of electricity output. 

A RFQ document that will invite bids for upgrading 
the HVAC and lighting installations across the Town 
of Chelmsford offices and schools. 



Other notable items are the achievement of Energy 
Star rating for three Chelmsford School buildings 
based on the occupancy rates and consumption of 
utilities. The rating is awarded to buildings that are 
better than 75% of other similar sized functional 
buildings. 

Respectfully Submitted, 

Badhri Uppiliappan 



Apart from these achievements, the ECC helped the 
Director of Public Facilities in vetting various new 
technologies such as: wired and wireless building 
HVAC and lighting sensors, phase conditioning sys- 
tems, LED street lighting.

Recycling / Solid Waste 

Jennifer Almeida 
Recycling Coordinator 



The Office of Recycling and Solid Waste seeks to insure 
excellent trash and recycling services to the residents 
of Chelmsford, and to insure that our solid waste and 
recycling programs comply with state waste bans, local 
bylaws and all other relevant requirements. We assist resi- 
dents having problems or questions related to recycling 
and solid waste; educate residents about the importance 
of recycling; promote composting, reuse/donation options 
and other waste reduction programs, and monitor the 
Town's waste and recycling tonnages and costs. 

The office is staffed by a part time Recycling Coordinator, 
Jennifer Almeida, and a part time volunteer, Winnie Col- 
bert. The Office's work is supported by the Chelmsford 
Recycling Committee: Norm Eisenmann, Chair; Nancy 
Kaelin, Vice-Chair; Mark Gallagher, clerk; and Bonnie 
Rankin, Jo Morse, Ron Goodner, Kathy Brough and Mark 
Grant. We also have several active volunteers who assist 
with recycling activities throughout the year. In particular 
this year, Kristy Medina organized the Earth Day Fair; 
Glenn Davison was the moving force behind the town- 
wide clean up; and Marion Hamblett put together and 
has been administering the Committee's website, www. 
Chelmsford.recycles.org. Also deserving special men- 
tion are Beth Logan and Rick Armstrong who volunteered 
long hours during our bitterly cold brush event in Decem- 
ber, and Peggy Dunn who has volunteered at most of our 
events including a very busy brush drop-off in April. 

Solid Waste: Chelmsford residents continue to do a good 
job reducing their solid waste. Our annual trash tonnage 
for the fiscal year was 12,695. On average, each Chelms- 
ford household is generating one ton of solid waste per 
year, down from 1 .26 tons per household in 2005. By 
comparison, the Towns of Billerica and Tewksbury, which 
are just beginning waste ban enforcement and trash limits, 
are only now at 1.26 and 1.34 tons per household per

year, respectively. On the other hand, the towns of Wen- 
ham and Hamilton, which only recently had rates compa- 
rable to Chelmsford's three years ago, now have annual 
per household tonnages of around .7 per year following 
the implementation of "pay as you throw" programs. 

Recycling: Our annual recycling tonnage for FY09 
came in at 3777, down somewhat from last year but by 
a smaller percentage than our trash tonnage. In addi- 
tion, mid-way through the fiscal year, recycling facilities 
notified haulers that in order to control costs during the 
economic downturn, strict quality controls were being im- 
posed to reduce contamination. This meant that our hauler 
left bins that contained non-recyclables (such as Styro- 
foam®) or that contained improperly set out recycling 
(paper mixed with containers). In addition, the recycling 
facilities notified the haulers that pizza boxes would no 
longer be accepted with recyclables as too often the boxes 
were contaminated with food and grease, rendering them 
non-recyclable.

** Costs shown are the Town's trash disposal costs only 
and do not include the cost of collection and transporta- 
tion of solid waste and recycling. 

Electronics/appliances/tires: prior to this year the town 
held several events each year for residents to bring these 
materials for recycling (two drop-offs per year for scrap 
metal and usable household goods; two events per year 
for electronics and tires). Starting in FY09, we moved 
to a fee based collection program under a contract with 
Appliance Recyclers, Inc. This program has the benefit 
of offering a year round disposal option, curbside pick-up 
to avoid the need for a large vehicle as well as the need 
to load and transport these items, and no more long lines 
at the drop-offs. The new program has been widely used 
with few problems thus far. Appliance Recyclers collected 
almost 98 tons of material in Chelmsford in FY09, mak- 
ing an average of 1 14 stops per month. 

Brush drop offs: Chelmsford typically holds two brush 
drop-offs each year (spring and fall) at Community Tree. 
This year we added an additional drop-off following the 
December ice storm. That event was lightly attended 
(fewer than 70 cars) due to the continuing winter weather, 
was staffed by some very hardy volunteers and worked by 
DPW employees. Our April drop-off, on the other hand, 
was extremely busy, serving 748 vehicles in 8 hours. The 
Recycling Committee, other volunteers and highway 
employees worked tirelessly to keep the line moving as 
quickly as possible. 



Household hazardous waste drop offs: The Recycling 
Office works with the Board of Health in publicizing the 
Town's now once a year household hazardous waste drop 
off event. At the event in May 2009, the event served 230 
cars. In addition the Recycling Office assists residents 
wishing to attend the Minuteman Household Hazardous 
Products facility in Lexington. This facility is open once 
per month from April through November. In FY09, 41 
residents made use of the facility. In addition, the Recy- 
cling Office has assisted the Board of Health in publiciz- 
ing the Town's pilot sharps disposal program which began 
in May, 2009 as the Town prepares for the states ban on 
the disposal of medical sharps in municipal solid waste 
starting in July 2010. 

Usable household goods: since we no longer sponsor 
semi-annual household hazardous waste drop-off events 
for usable furniture and other household goods, we have 
begun actively referring residents with such material to 
local charities and organizations in need of these materi- 
als. In particular, we have the Lowell Wish Project conve- 
niently located just off the Lowell Connector to which we 
send residents with usable furniture, mattresses, bedding 
and linens, working appliances and kitchen ware, and 
other basic household needs on a weekly basis. Refer- 
rals to the Wish Project assists those residents who would 
otherwise have had to wait for our twice a year events, 
and enables them to donate their usable items year round, 
without waiting for our dates and without having to wait 
in our sometimes very long lines. In addition to the Wish 
Project, we encourage residents to donate usable house- 
hold items to Boy Scout Troop 74 for its annual "Giant 
Yard Sale." In addition, the Recycling Office encourages 
residents to try resources such as www.freecycle.org as a 
way to give away usable materials and keep them out of 
the waste stream. 

Mercury programs: The Recycling Officer operates the 
Town's mercury abatement programs to keep mercury out 
of the trash and to insure that it is collected and disposed 
of in a safe manner. These programs are funded by 
Wheelabrator, North Andover, the incinerator to which 
Chelmsford's trash goes. In FY2009, we collected 136 
thermometers (we give a free digital replacement); 61

mercury thermostats; 16,480 linier feet of fluorescent 
light bulbs and over 1000 other fluorescent light bulbs; 
12.5 pounds of button batteries and almost 13 pounds of 
elemental mercury. 

Cell phone & rechargeable battery recycling: Cell phones 
(along with their batteries and accessories) are collected 
for recycling at the Chelmsford Town Offices (Clerk's 
Office and Recycling Office). In FY09 we recycled about 
420 cell phones through this program. In FY 09 we also 
recycled about 600 pounds of rechargeable batteries with 
our drop-off boxes at the Town Offices. 

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 house- 
holds in late June. The Recycling Office also maintained 
and updated the recycling portion of the Town's website 
(www.townofchelmsford.us/Recycling-Department.cfm), 
and created a 

"Recycling 101" informational guide (a pdf form is on 
the website) to provide more in depth information on 
recycling in Chelmsford. In addition, recycling volunteer 
Marion Hamblett, working with the Recycling Office 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 updated 
Chelmsford's local access television station's com- 
munity bulletin board with information on solid waste 
and recycling, updated its recorded information line at 
978-250-5299, wrote occasional newspaper articles for 
the local press and drafted informational pieces on the Of- 
fice's programs for publication in the Town's Community 
Newsletters. 

Compost bins: The Recycling Office sells compost bins 
below cost to Chelmsford residents to encourage com- 
posting of kitchen scraps and yard waste. In 2009 we sold 
the New Age Composter as well as the Earth Machine, 
which we had not carried for many years but which we 
stocked in FY09 in order to provide a somewhat smaller 
and more affordable option. In FY 09 we sold 58 com- 



post bins. 

Anti-idling program: In 2008 Chelmsford received an 
anti-idling grant from the MA DEP in order to educate 
residents about the need to avoid unnecessary vehicle 
idling. In FY09 we continued to work to educate resi- 
dents about this 27 year old law that aims to improve air 
quality and reduce the incidence of respiratory diseases - 
especially in children. Signs were posted at the schools in 
the fall of 2008. It is important for residents to be aware 
that the anti-idling law is in effect everywhere - not only 
where signs are posted. 

Leaves: 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 collec- 
tion services, the Recycling Office refers residents to the 
Jones Farm curbside collection and drop off programs and 
encourages home composting. Jones Farm reports that 
between 300 and 350 households used their leaf collec- 
tion/drop-off program in FY09. 

Rain barrels: Although MA DEP did not fund any rain 
barrel grant assistance as they have in the past, the Recy- 
cling Office worked with the New England Rain Barrel 
Company to make discounted rain barrels available for 
purchase to Chelmsford residents in April. Residents who 
signed up in advance were able to purchase rain barrels 
at below retail, and we had a distribution day behind the 
Town Offices in mid-April at which 39 rain barrels were 
sold to Chelmsford residents. 

Regional efforts: The Recycling Office was an active 
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 participa- 
tion, and explores ways for these communities to work 
together to improve services while keeping down the 
costs to each municipality. In FY09, our work with the 
MVRRP included the creation of the third annual Earth 
Day "Reduce, Reuse, Recycle" guide published by the 
Lowell Sun (copies of the guide are available at the Recy- 
cling Office); and successful commencement of the

fee-based curbside collection of appliances, electronics 
and tires. Under a DEP grant with Billerica and Tewks- 
bury, 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. In addition, in FY09, we worked 
with 1 3 other municipalities in an effort to secure a favor- 
able contract for the disposal of Chelmsford's solid waste 
when our current contract expires at the end of FY 10. 
As a result of this collective effort, we secured a contract 
with very costs and terms. 

Recycling Committee Activities: Among many other 
activities, the Recycling Committee did the following 
in FY09: staffed an informational booth at the July 3-4 
Country Fair, and the Committee and other recycling 
volunteers worked to recycle bottles and cans disposed 

Greener Chelmsford Initiative 



of during the country fair; planned and launched its new 
"Recycling Champion" program; sponsored a poster and 
essay contest recognizing America Recycles Day (No- 
vember 1 5) for school age children residing in Chelms- 
ford; assisted with the planning and implementation of a 
simplified, cost-effective town-wide litter clean up and 
Earth Day Fair; and volunteered tirelessly at our brush 
drop-offs in October, December and April. 



The Greener Chelmsford Initiative (GCI) program was 
started by Town Selectmen, Eric Dahlberg and Pat Woj- 
tas in April 2009. Badhri Uppiliappan was appointed the 
volunteer director of GCI in May 2009. GCI is a program 
to recognize the efforts of Chelmsford businesses that are 
taking steps to become environmentally friendly in their 
practices and implementing continuous improvement 
strategies to sustain these practices. 

The following Chelmsford entities have been recog- 
nized for their efforts: Town of Chelmsford Offices, 
Harrington Wine & Liquors, Moonstone Restaurant, 
Chelmsford Public Library, Java Room, Cartridge World, 
Kronos, S&H Engineering, Chelmsford Copy. The only 
two companies to date to have achieved a "GOLD" 
standard have been Kronos and S&H Engineering. At 
this time, GCI is working with Radisson Chelmsford and 
Chelmsford Housing Authority to recognize their efforts. 
Enterprise Bank and Trust Corporation is working with 
GCI to achieve a "GCI partner status". 

Additionally, GCI is beginning to collect data on de- 



veloping a preliminary greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions 
index for the Town of Chelmsford as a whole. This top 
level data includes total natural gas and electricity con- 
sumption, total trash tonnage, estimated annual usage of 
vehicle fuel consumption and related emissions. This data 
will provide residents, businesses and town administra- 
tion an opportunity to engage in discussions of the future 
directions the town could take with respect to GHG emis- 
sions. GCI seeks town residents interested in volunteering 
with the program to help local businesses adopt envi- 
ronmentally friendly practices. Residents of Chelmsford 
are strongly encouraged to patronize the GCI recognized 
businesses to support the extra efforts of these businesses. 
Students are particularly welcome to discuss volunteer 
projects with GCI. Volunteer opportunities can be cus- 
tomized to student interests in areas such as Graphic arts, 
Data Visualization, Action projects and such.

The Cemetery Commission is pleased to report the fol- 
lowing accomplishments for fiscal year 2009, to the 
citizens of Chelmsford. 

At Pine Ridge Cemetery, we have two new sections 
available for sale; Section M, which contains a Crema- 
tion Garden and plans are under way to construct a Niche 
Wall; this wall will provide an area for the above ground 
burial of Cremains, with each Niche containing enough 
space for two inurnments. The other section available at 
Pine Ridge is Section N, which is now available for sale; 
this area includes traditional earth burials along with earth 
burial lots specifically for cremation. 

During the past winter season, Cemetery personnel con- 
structed a new conference room at Pine Ridge Cemetery, 
this room provides the Superintendent an area to privately 
meet with families while selecting a Cemetery lot. We are 
looking forward to renovating the main office area during 
the upcoming winter season. 

Please visit the Town's web site at www.townofchelms- 
ford.us and click on the Public Facilities link; then to the 
Cemetery Department link, here you will find information 





on the Cemetery 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 2009 there were 142 total interments, 
1 1 1 full burials and 3 1 cremation interments which ac- 
counted for nearly 22% of total interments. There were 64 
cemetery lots sold throughout the town. Thirty-one resi- 
dents participated in the Prepaid Interment Fee Program. 
The Cemetery Commission appreciates our staff's efforts 
to keep Chelmsford's six public cemeteries well-main- 
tained and attractive burial places.

Septage and Wastewater Abatement Program 

In 2009 the Septage and Wastewater Abatement Program 
continued its efforts to clean up our waterways. The 
Board of Health, with the advent of a central sewer sys- 
tem in Chelmsford is continuing its enforcement activities 
to insure compliance with local by-laws which will insure 
a safe water supply. 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 2009 income for various services and permits 
was collected for 600 inspections of restaurants, septic 
systems, swimming pools, beaver complaints, day care 
centers, rental housing units, public schools, recreational 
camps, bathing beaches, tanning facilities, and all retail 
food stores. The Department also responded to emergen- 
cy inspections, nuisance calls and complaints. 

Hazardous Waste and Industrial Wastewater Program 

Richard J. Day, Director of Public Health, was reappoint- 
ed Hazardous Waste Coordinator and Municipal Coordi- 
nator to enforce the "Right-To-Know law for Chelmsford. 
The Board of Health/Solid Waste held one Household 
Hazardous Waste Collection Day this year which was 
held on May 9, 2009. This program has consistently col- 
lected significant volumes of hazardous waste.

local newspapers, local cable television and the Town of 
Chelmsford web page at www.townofchelmsford.us. A 
total of 78 screenings were done in six clinics from Octo- 
ber 2008 through September 2009. 

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 4th of July 
festivities with a 72 hour emergency kit raffled off. 

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

The Board of Health worked closely with the American 
Red Cross to fill out an application and then have the Red 



Cross perform a site inspection of the Chelmsford Senior 
Center in order to enable the Senior Center to be listed as 
a Red Cross certified shelter for any further needs we may 
have. 

Complete demonstration and set up of the Upper Mer- 
rimack Valley Region 3C Emergency Shelter took place 
in fiscal year 2009 in three different locations, including 
Chelmsford, for all emergency responders.

Council on Aging & Elder Services 

Diana Ryder, 

Human Services Director 



The Human Services/Elder Services Department provides 
advocacy 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 undergo- 
ing analysis and change with adjectives such as "seasoned 
citizens", "Geri-Actives" and "Rewired" being used with 
greater frequency to describe older Americans. Tomor- 
row'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 CO A strive to: support frail 
elders in their homes; case management for older adults 
to age in place; provide information and assistance to 
families making life change decisions concerning elder 
family members; provide some supportive services for 
disabled of all ages; empowering consumers; and, provide 
preventive health programming, advocacy, education, 
social, vocational, financial, and leisure opportunities for 
active adults. Fostering a sense of community and in- 
volvement through shared experiences 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 commit- 
ment to service.

appreciative of all the hours provided by these amazing, 
caring people. 
Future Goals 

The Council on Aging, in conjunction with other commu- 
nity 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 extremely challenging. It takes input and coopera- 
tion from the whole community. 
We are also beginning the long process of having the 
senior center nationally accredited. This too is very chal- 
lenging and is being coordinated by volunteers. 

One other challenge in the coming year will be to main- 
tain 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 transpor- 
tation costs increase. 

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

The Council On Aging is committed to continue to 
strengthen the capacity of our department in Fiscal Year 
2010. In the coming year, we will continue to advocate 
for older community adults: in the areas of health, trans- 
portation, taxes and affordable housing; gather informa- 
tion from Chelmsford seniors regarding 'what works well 
and what changes could be made'; and, continue assisting 
seniors and families in providing 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 public, and toward the many volunteers. 
It is the members of the Council on Aging who work 
constantly with the Director to bring about responsive 
programming and quality services to the residents of 
Chelmsford. Council on Aging Members include: Chair- 
person, Diana Boisvert, Vice Chair, Paul Sweeney, Clerk 
Ann Warburton, Robert Grippo, Louise Myers, Mary Jane 
Rainge, Stella Apostolos, Walter Cinsavich, Hank Mc- 
Call and Enid Rocha. Outgoing Board members: Stella

Veterans ' Services 

Regina Jackson 
Veterans 'Agent 



The Chelmsford Veterans' Services Office provides 
short-term financial assistance to eligible veterans and 
their families as mandated by Massachusetts General Law 
Chapter 115. The Chapter 115 program is a public as- 
sistance 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 Mas- 
sachusetts Department of Veterans' Service. The State 
will reimburse Chelmsford for 75% of authorized benefits 
paid out. 

In fiscal year 2009 Chelmsford paid out $83,520.00 to 15 
veterans and 6 widows eligible for chapter 115 assistance. 
The benefit is paid out on a monthly basis. The Town will 
get back $62,640.00 of that amount. This is the maximum 
75% reimbursement allowed by the State. In FY '09 we 
had more veterans /widows seeking assistance for longer 
periods of time. The Chapter 115 program provides a lim- 
ited 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 vet- 
erans eligible for Federal VA benefits is always a small 
percentage of the total number of veterans in the commu- 
nity. Almost all VA benefits must be applied for - they are 
not automatic. This office 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 Appeals. 
The VA periodically takes a 'snapshot' of the total amount 
of Federal Veterans benefits that flow into a commu- 
nity. The latest figures are from 12/2008. The amount of 
Federal VA money that flows annually into Chelmsford is 
$3,961,228.00 as disbursed to 364 Veterans and 58 wid 
ows/ surviving family members living in Chelmsford. 




Congresswoman Niki Tsongas, Veteran s Day 2008 



This office also processes applications for State Veterans' 
Bonuses and Annuities, the latest being the 'Welcome 
Home Bonus'. Also there have been some significant 
positive changes in some of the property tax exemptions 
effecting veterans and their surviving spouses (specifical- 
ly clause 22D). Working with the Chelmsford Assessors 
office we are attempting to identify the eligible homeown- 
er taxpayers in Chelmsford. 

Our office coordinates the Chelmsford Veterans Day 
Observance, which is always held at Veterans' Memorial 
Park on the 11th of November at 11:00AM (11/11 at 11). 
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 un- 
able to visit the office, please call and I would be happy to 
schedule a home visit. 978-250-5238, rjackson@townof-

Chelmsford Housing A uthority 

David Hedison, Director 



The Chelmsford Housing Authority continues to make 
progress in meeting the needs of families, seniors and the 
disabled in need of affordable housing. This year, the 
Chelmsford Housing Authority has been awarded 88 new 
Section 8 Vouchers for non-elderly disabled individuals 
and another 35 for Veterans currently receiving services 
from the Bedford VA. We also celebrated the completion 
of our new development on 1 and 3 Harding Street that 
will soon be home to 8 disabled residents. We also cel- 
ebrated the opening of a new senior housing development 
in Westford, MA for which we serve as the Management 
Agent. 

The Chelmsford Housing Authority in collaboration with 
CHOICE, Inc, continues to move forward in securing the 
necessary funding to construct the 37 new rental units for 
seniors at the North Village Campus. The Massachusetts 
Institute for Social and Economic Research has estimated 
that by the year 2010 the over 60 population in Chelms- 
ford will increase by 71.6% while the overall state projec- 
tion 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 fundamentally 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 140 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 additional 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 assists over 556 families/elderly/ 
disabled in the area with rental assistance to live in a pri- 
vate apartment. We have placed Section 8 Vouchers into 
The Kensington, Princeton Commons and The Meadows 
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 have 
over 1,200 applicants that have a local preference. 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 homeown- 
ership. 

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 1 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, Execu- 
tive Director, Connie Donahue, Deputy Director, Kristin 
Roberts, Finance Manager and twelve additional staff 
members. Regular meetings are held at McFarlin Manor, 
10 Wilson Street at 5:00 p.m., on the first Monday each 
month. The Annual 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 Chelmsford and Town Officials for 
their continued support and cooperation.

Arts & Technology Education Fund 



Kirk Marshall, Chairman 



The 1 996 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 supplemental funding to support local educa- 
tional initiatives and projects. Thanks to your generosity 
and support the ATEF has received over $70,000 since its 
inception in November 1996. The committee is currently 
working 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 applications 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 Town Meeting 2006 approved 
the first amendment to the By-Law by adding an addi- 
tional two members to the committee. The Spring 2009 
Applications and copies of the applications along with the 
By-Law were distributed in January 2009 to each school 
through hard copy and email. The committee received 
completed applications by March 31, 2009. Teach- 
ers and School Councils apply for these funds. Project 
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 2009. The next applications 
will be distributed in January 2010 and the deadline for 
the next academic year is March 31, 2010. The concept 
of using tax check-offs for an alternative funding source 
for education was initiated by Arlington's veteran Town 
Treasurer, John Bilafer, under a Home Rule Petition many 
years ago. Since this was accepted, numerous 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 
member of the Chelmsford School Committee. Chelms- 



ford uses a separate tear-off sheet in the excise and real 
estate tax bills as the method to elicit voluntary contri- 
butions 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.

Bicycle & Pedestrian Advisory Committee 

Thomas Gazda, Chairman 




The Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee was 
formed to work to improve bicycling and pedestrian 
conditions in the Town of Chelmsford. Its long-term goal 
is to help make Chelmsford a bicycle and pedestrian 
friendly community where users of motorized and non- 
motorized means of transportation can safely share the 
roads in town. 

In it's first full year, the Committee has successfully 
undertaken a number of initiatives. First and foremost, the 
Safe Routes to Schools Program was initiated in the four 
elementary schools. This program, managed by the Mas- 
sachusetts Executive Office of Transportation, promotes 
healthy alternatives for children and parents in their travel 
to and from school. It educates students, parents and com- 
munity members on the value of walking and bicycling 
for travel to and from school. Through this program, it 
is also possible to obtain grant funding for bicycle and 
pedestrian related initiatives such as signage purchase and 
installation and crosswalk and sidewalk improvements. 

The committee established a recommendation document 
for bicycle racks at Town, School and commercial proper- 
ties. The styles of bike racks recommended are those that 
are solid and durable, have no protrusions that can cause 
in injury, and enable secure fastening of the bicycle. In 
addition, the committee developed a guideline on the 
installation of bike racks to ensure that they are placed in 
appropriate locations for visibility, security and ease of 
use as well as making sure that the mounting is perma- 
nent. The style and installation guidelines were provided 
to Town, the Facilities and School Departments and the 
Planning Board for consideration of adoption to ensure 
that when racks are added or properties are being devel- 
oped or redeveloped, bicycle racks are incorporated into 
the design plans as a means to encourage non-motorized 
transportation. And as a result of a BPAC request, bicycle 
racks will be installed in front of Town Hall. 




The committee also established its webpage on the Town 
website at http://www.townofchelmsford.us/Bicycle.cfm 
and which contains a wealth of information and impor- 
tant links related to bicycle and pedestrian issues, rules, 
safety guidelines and various activities. The Committee 
also established a monthly column Steps & Spokes that 
is published in the Chelmsford Independent. The column 
highlights relevant information and recommendations 
related to bicycle and pedestrian issues, including safety, 
bicycle maintenance, appropriate dressing for visibility, 
construction projects, and the Rail Trail. In addition, the 
Committee has placed articles of interest in the quarterly 
Community Newsletter published by the Community 
Education Department. 

The committee also advocated for a study of Vinal Square 
in North Chelmsford aimed at making it more bicycle and 
pedestrian friendly. The study to be done by the North- 
ern Middlesex Council of Governments (NMCOG) will 
commence in October 2009 and will consider the design 
issues of this complex intersection as well as bicycle and 
pedestrian safety in anticipation of the possibility of a 
commuter rail station in the North Chelmsford area. 

The committee also conducted several site walks in key 
areas around town, making recommendations for minor 
pedestrian improvements to the future Mass Highway

improvement project at the Parkhurst Road/Smith Street 
intersection, improvements in the Town Center including 
signage realignment and possible crossing signal timing 
changes, and installation of signage at crosswalks at vari- 
ous locations to improve visibility. 

The Committee has also been active in contributing to 
the revision of the Town's Master Plan. In particular, the 
committee has made recommendations in areas such as 
Land Use, Economic Development, Transportation, Facil- 
ities, Infrastructure, Open Space and Recreation sections 
of the plan. The goal of the committee is to be sure that 
the Revised Master Plan for the next 10 years and beyond 
gives significant attention to alternative forms of trans- 
portation with plans to promote non-motorized modes of 
transportation. This includes improving sidewalks and 
crosswalks, providing pedestrian links between commer- 
cial and residential properties and encouraging the village 
concept, particularly in the town centers. 

The committee also participated in the grand opening of 
the Bruce Freeman Rail Trail on August 29, 2009. A table 
with information and a brochure about the BPAC was 
made available at this event. Members of the committee 
also participated in the statewide trail count on Saturday 
September 19, 2009 with trail usage counted at the Maple 
Road intersection and observed at other crossing locations 
in the Town. 



assisting in bringing grant money to the Town that can be 
used for improving bicycle and pedestrian amenities and 
safety. 

The BPAC thanks the Board of Selectmen, Town Manag- 
er, Town Engineering Department, Department of Public 
Works and all town officials for their continuing support 
of this committee and its efforts.

program, development and documentation of bike routes, 
examining the possibility of routing of part of the Middle- 
sex Canal Towpath trail along a portion of the Rail Trail

In an effort to support Chelmsford's 2009 Fourth of 
July festivities, the Council elected to sponsor the 
prize for the national anthem "Chelmsford Idol" 
competition and the Chelmsford Friends of Music 
Band's participation in the town parade. The funds 
used for the band sponsorship will provide further 
benefit for the town, through the Friends of Music's 
community programs. 



Recruiting and current members: 
The Council successfully recruited 4 new members 
this summer 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). As with the prior 
year, we decided to involve 2 members with the Co- 
Chair role in order to spread responsibility and plan 
for the inevitable unavailability of a Council member 
at a meeting. 

Karen McHenry (stepping down as Co-Chair 

and leaving the Council in September) 
Lois Alves (stepping down as Co-Chair) 
Renaldo Aristud* 
Elizabeth Broderick* 

Kathy Cryan-Hicks (Co-Chair, Display Case Co- 
ordinator) 

Joshua Kidder (Treasurer) 

Jay Lee (Co-Chair) 

Bruce Magnuson* 
Lisbeth Peterson* (Secretary) 
Linda- Jean Smith (Grant Administrator) 
(* new member, Summer 2009) 



Sincerely, 

Lois Alves & Karen McHenry

Parade Committee 



Lynn Marcella & Jeff Hardy, 
Co-Chairmen 



The Chelmsford Parade Committee, Inc. recently 
coordinated their third 4th of July Parade for the 
Town of Chelmsford, and it was a beautiful, fun and 
successful day! Co-chairs, Jeff Hardy and Brian 
Reidy, along with committee members: Jim Cullen, 
Mark Duffy, Hank Hamelin, Doug Hausler, Clare 
Jeannotte, Kathy Kelley, Lynn Marcella, and Rick 
Romano along with liaisons Town Manager Paul 
Cohen and Selectman Bill Dalton started work on 
the parade last September! Again this year we had 
cash raffle with prizes of $1,000; $500; and 5 - $100 
prizes and again this year the support from the com- 
munity was phenomenal with thousands of tickets 
returned! We also had a Sports Extravaganza Raffle 
in which the winner got: 2 - Red Sox tickets; 2 - 
Boston Bruins tickets; 2 - Boston Celtics tickets; 2 
- New England Patriots tickets and 2 - New England 
Revolution tickets! The Parade Marshal this year 
was Bill Dalton who, in addition to being very ac- 
tive in our community, had just retired after having 
served 15 years on the Board of Selectmen. Bill is 
a retired Chelmsford firefighter after more than 25 
years of service, a past president of the Firefighters 
Union, a Vietnam Veteran and a member of the U.S. 
Marine Corps. He has participated in Town Meet- 
ing since 1981. He has been involved in many other 
community activities, too numerous to mention! 
Congratulations, Bill! The Chelmsford Business 
Association float this year was a flatbed truck deco- 
rated with flags and bunting carrying our own Parade 
Co-Chair Jeff Hardy and his band "Joe's Attic"! 
The band sounded great in the parade and played a 
couple of numbers after the parade before we had the 
raffles. New to the parade this year was the Shriners 
Fire Brigade and Chelmsford's own Rick Larrimore

Public Library 

Becky Legros Herrmann, 
Library Director 



Fiscal 2009 was a tumultuous year for the Chelmsford 
Public Library. In times of economic difficulty, people 
turn to their libraries. Balancing budgetary cuts with 
increasing library use proved challenging. In the face of 
reduced hours and staffing and cuts to the book budget 
and operating costs, patrons expressed concern and were 
vocal with their appreciation of all the library had to of- 
fer. Enthusiasm for the library was highlighted when the 
Friends of the Library group spearheaded a letter writing 
campaign. 

Close to 2000 letters and e-mails were sent to the town 
administration asking for library funds to be restored so 
that the town could receive its share of library state aid 
and preserve inter-library loan services. A special thank 
you goes out to all library users who voiced their support. 
We are especially grateful to the Friends of the Library 
for their continued financial support. The book sale nets 
approximately $30,000 each year and the Friends fund 
virtually all of our library programs. The Friends also 
funded the meeting room multimedia projector and sound 
system with paging capabilities in FY09. With the reces- 
sion this past year, we have had more townspeople com- 
ing to the library for free programs - performances/talks, 
music and crafts. Support from the Friends enables us to 
continue these programs while budgets are cut. 

Despite these budget limitations, our year was well- 
spent working on improving the library and its services. 
More than 800 programs were offered over the course of 
the year beginning with our Worldwide Wednesday con- 
cert series at MacKay that featured everything from Ger- 
man polka bands to Mexican Mariachi music and French 
torch singers. Our art and music receptions continued to 
be very successful with Paula Lerner's striking "Afghan 
Women" photography exhibit and George Chen's brush 
painting being particularly popular. We collaborated with 
area non-profits to offer programs on resumes and job 
interviews, how to maintain your brain and genealogy 




searching. We also continued to work on a town-wide 
collaborative History Project to locate and index histori- 
cal records in town, to make Chelmsford history easier to 
research. 

Our poetry slam was well-attended as usual and an 
author series that featured five different authors includ- 
ing Steve Almond, of "Candyfreak" fame brought in 
diverse groups of people. Our traditional activities ~ 
book groups, pre-school story hours - (offered 9 times 
a week!), puppet shows, storytelling and conversation 
circles continue to be busy. Additional services now being 
offered include a public fax machine, color printing, and 
downloadable audiobooks with a new format that works 
with ipods. 

Our third One Book program featured "Three Cups of 
Tea" by Greg Mortenson. We kicked off Winterfest with 
a community social that featured central Asian-inspired 
foods and desserts from local restaurants and a wine 
tasting by Harrington Wine and Liquor. Close to 300 
people attended but that number was miniscule compared 
to the 1000 people who came to hear Mortenson speak 
at Chelmsford High's Performing Arts Center. It was a

wonderful way to kick off the One Book program and it 
inspired a long-term interest in the book and its humani- 
tarian themes. 

A new "Clean and Green" series had great attendance 
this year. It is an ongoing collaborative effort with the 
town's recycling department and Chelmsford CAN ~ a 
chapter of MCAN -Mass Climate Action Network. We 
featured talks on energy efficiency, composting, water and 
energy efficiency, recycling and "green" investing. 
In addition to our "green" programming, in FY09 we 
worked to increase our energy efficiency in the building 
itself. An evaluation of the lighting, switches and H VAC 
settings was performed and we worked with the town on a 
grant to install solar panels in FY 10. We were applauded 
for our efforts with a Green Initiative award from the 
town. 

The Chelmsford Public Library was also recognized 
by EBSCO Publishing with the Library Customer Success 
Award. EBSCO serves many libraries across the country, 
and has been compiling stories of libraries performing an 
outstanding role in the field. In this case, Chelmsford won 
the award for Library Advocacy, for sharing a Library 
Use Value Calculator with other libraries. The calcula- 
tor is a tool that easily lets library patrons calculate the 
value of their library use - in other words, how much 
they would have to pay retail for the services they enjoy 
through the library. Check it out on our website at http:// 
www.chelmsfordlibrary.org/library_info/calculator.html 

Rob Maier at the Board of Library Commissioners 
also lauded us for a library documentary that was filmed 
in FY09. The library collaborated with Fred Barzyck 
from PBS to develop an informational film about the 
library. We worked with staff, volunteers and Chelms- 
ford Telemedia to produce a 1 hour piece that highlights 
programs and services at the library - you can check out a 
copy of the film at the library or purchase a copy of your 
own. You can view interviews with staff, see a sampling 
of a few of our library performers and you can even 
watch children's specialist Bonnie Rankin kiss a pig! 

We received several grants in FY09 - one for the chil- 
dren's department as part of a National Science Founda- 
tion pilot program focused on math. We participated by 
including math activities into daily activities like story- 
times, crafts and on our bulletin boards. Another grant 



we received enabled us to update our reader's advisory 
resources and programs. It is particularly targeted at baby 
boomers and will continue through FY 10. 

FY09 was a year of staff changes as we welcomed new 
staffer — Youth Services/Teen Specialist Patricia Horan in 
-- but lost seasoned staffers Assistant Director, Christo- 
pher Kupec (off to a job in Great Britain), Teen Services 
Librarian, Roberta Barricelli (off to work for the Chelms- 
ford Public Schools) and ILL Specialist Linda Webb (re- 
tiring after 47! years of meritorious service to the town.) 
Due to budget cuts we were also saddened to lay-off 
several staffers at both the main library and MacKay. This 
year, with all the budget cuts, we were especially grateful 
for the 236 volunteers who worked 5,484 hours for us - 
doing everything from running the book sale to helping 
with programs to delivering books to nursing homes. The 
myriad ways that volunteers support the library are too 
many to list. A warm thank you goes out to all of you! 

From July 2008 to June 2009, your public library... 

Checked in and out 603, 1 78 books, DVDs and other 
items. 

• Lent and borrowed 150,261 items through Interlibrary 
Loan (ILL) 

• Gave out 1450 new library cards 
Welcomed 213,422 visitors 
Answered 20,826 reference questions 

And we were the busiest library in the Merrimack Valley 
Consortium!
