Rt 110 is developing like a virus. I hope Westford know what it is in for. Earnie Boch doesn't care about you, just his wealth. The logging down on the intersection of Littleton Rd, and Boston Rd is sad. At least learn from Chelmsford's mistakes...

I drove by there today.It makes me sick to my stomache to see that.What other areas of Westford are doomed to this type of destruction? And why is the town not putting a stop to it?

I know. Boch's building down the street. It was a comment about 110 development in general. Although, I"m rather curious what the new plaza will hold - another Market Basket? ;-)

We don't need any more gas stations, banks, pharmacies, fast food, pizza places, Dunkin' Donuts, gyms or liquor stores. Although I would like to see a Panera Bread if they do go with fast food. I doubt they would put a supermarket there unless maybe a Whole Food or something smaller. Maybe a small bookstore or a toy store or a nice restaurant. We probably don't need the places,so let's hope it is something we will like and be glad for the convenience.

AH YES! The smell of vulcanizing rubber wafing all over the town. At least the asphalt plant wouldn't have been so bad. Ha Ha Ha.

The taxes will never go down. i used to leave in milford mass before moving to westford, they had a crap load of busineses come in my taxes never went down, they said the same thing we need more busineess to keep the tax rate down. never happens no matter wich town, they will find ways to spend more money, I moved Westford to avoid this type of crap, if you like it then you should move to Milford, & take a book on a few foreign languages, you will need it.English is the 2nd language there.

Goodrich ISR systems manufactures high altitude surveilance camersa. Not rubber. BF Goodrich makes the rubber. I thought the arrival of a company that actually MAKES something would be a welcome change.

Goodrich is moving into already existing buildings at the other end of rt 110, next to Juniper. They are not building anything new, they're renovating the inside of an existing building.

It has nothing to do with the trees being cut down near the Westford Regency at the other end.

FWIW, Goodrich is currently in Chelmsford on 129 across from Comcast. No smells there.

Don't you just love all these people barking about not cutting a tree in westford as they live in there new house in a development that as a kid we use to ride bikes down the paths that were there instead of there half million dollar house set on a postage stamp of land. Or better yet the folks that move into town so they can put there kids through school, vote to build 10 new schools and then move away after the kids are out of high school leaving the townies to payy the race bills they drove through the roof.how about shut your face if you haven't lived here more than 30 years.
Oh boy
