The Westford Planning Commission will soon undertake the latest update of the Westford Town Plan.  As part of that effort, we are gathering public opinion on the important issues facing Westford today.  The community was last surveyed in 2009. Of the 925 surveys sent to all Westford households and property owners, approximately 254 were returned. This means nearly 1 in 4 households (27%) responded to the survey.  Although this is a good return rate, let’s see if we can out do ourselves this time around!

Please take a moment of your time to answer the Westford Community Survey questions. The survey can be completed online or you may pick up and/or drop off a paper-copy at  the Westford Town Office or Westford Public Library.

Thank you for participating in our local planning process and efforts!

The Town of Westford currently accepts postmarks (USPS, UPS & FedEx) for tax payments.  Given the electronic age we are in, the Town occasionally receives checks directly from financial institutions after a taxpayer initiates the payment.  This type of payment may be known as Bill Pay.

These payments are mailed to the Town directly from the financial institution however the envelope does not bear a postmark.  Effective July 1, 2015 the Town of Westford will acknowledge this type of payment based on the date the payment is received at the Town Office.

The Town highly recommends that if you remit payment using this method, you contact your financial institution to determine the appropriate lead time to ensure your tax payment is timely.
