Please help us kickoff the Payson Road Recreation Area project by celebrating on Tuesday August 12th from 7:00-8:00 p.m. in the Tot Lot parking area. For more information, please call the Planning Board at (508)543-1250.
We were very fortunate to receive THREE bids from exceptional local contractors for the work at the Payson Road recreation area. We are very close to completing contract negotiations with the low bidder and will make the announcement soon.
At this time, construction is tentatively scheduled to start mid- to late-August, with the clearing, earthwork, drainage, grading, loaming, seeding, and planting of trees scheduled for this Fall. Work in the Spring will include repair to existing gravel paths and construction of new paths, an asphalt sidewalk from Payson Road to the baseball field area, and concrete pads for the picnic pavilion and tot lot equipment. We will be complete by the state’s deadline of June 1, 2015.
We will post exact starting dates and schedule when we get them.

We’re delighted to report that the Invitation to bid on the Payson Road recreation area construction is out and available for contractors to review and submit a bid. Responses are due Wednesday June 4th at 2:00 p.m. We are on track to meet the state’s requirement to begin construction by July 1, 2014.
We’ve had questions about the trees marked with orange tape. The ones marked are the ones to be saved. We will be leaving a buffer of trees and shrubs similar to the one in front of the Ernie George Field; enough trees to soften the appearance, not so many that it’s impossible to see through.
Lastly, please join the Boyden Library, the Foxborough Planning Board, and the Foxborough Conservation Commission in welcoming Kevin Gardner, author of The Granite Kiss, to the Boyden Library on June 2, 2014 from 7:00-9:00 p.m. Kevin will discuss the genesis and history of stone walls, their significance, and include information on constructing and maintaining stone walls. A generous question and answer period will follow Kevin’s talk. The talk is free and open to the public; for more information, please call 508-543-1250.
The concept plan in the last post was well received by public meeting attendees. Work on developing specifications and plans for early May bidding is proceeding. We will provide links to final plans as they become available.
