According to the United States Census Bureau, the town has a total area of 31.3 square miles and a population of almost 22,000. With a well-respected school district, two town beaches on spring-fed ponds, a beautiful state-of-the-art library (established in 1797), and an active community center, Westford is a family-oriented town.
Colloquially, the town is divided into different regions based on location, including Forge Village, Nabnasset, Graniteville, Parker Village, and Center of Town. The town’s Master Plan maintains a distinction between the Commercial and Residential zones of the town, divided by Route 495. This allows for growth in the town while maintaining the character of this lovely area, and a balance of open spaces, without encroachment of commercial development as you approach Westford’s Historic Town Center.
The town was rated as #11 Best Places to live by CNN Money in 2013.
