BCRT lease approved by MBTA

The Boston Globe reported on Friday that the MBTA had voted, as expected, to lease for 99 years the old rail line to the three towns that are exploring whether to turn it into the Bay Colony Rail Trail.  The three towns, Medfield, Dover an d Needham, had written to the MBTA to ask whether the MBTA would lease the old right of way to them, and now each town must on its own decide whether it will accept the offer by the MBTA to lease the rail line.  Both Medfield and Dover have town committees looking at the issues invovled in developing the Bay Colony Rail Trail, and Needham has already established the Bay Colony Rail Trail as part of its master plan.
