Representative James O’Day announces MassWorks grants for the Town of West Boylston

BOSTON—Wednesday, October 22, 2014 — Representative James O’Day (D-West Boylston) announced that through a new round of MassWorks Infrastructure Program grants, the Town of West Boylston has been approved for $995,000 for the construction of 7,190 linear feet of new sidewalks for the Town Center of West Boylston. The district is home to businesses and several schools within the town. This project will expand the sidewalks in the area and create an environment that is safer for students, residents and patrons who live, work and play in Village Center.

“This is an exciting announcement for the town of West Boylston,” said Representative James O’Day. “It is a project that covers three important areas of town life: pedestrian safety, economic stimulus, and improves the quality of life for all of our citizens.”

“The Patrick Administration has been committed to providing support to communities so that they can grow and prosper,” said Secretary of Housing and Economic Development Greg Bialecki. “Revitalizing a community through infrastructure improvements will make it easier for businesses to grow and communities to flourish.”

MassWorks is administered by the Executive Office of Housing and Economic Development. The grants total over $66 million in improvement projects that will support thousands of jobs in Massachusetts communities. Through these awards, the state will partner with cities and towns to support local housing developments, infrastructure developments, road safety, and revitalization projects across the state.
