Judith K. Record

Through her passionate commitment to conservation, Judy touched many people in Belmont, energizing and encouraging them to become engaged in the challenging process of protecting open space in the town. Her death, in a tragic bicycle accident in 2000, was keenly felt by many colleagues and friends, concerned citizens, and the members of Town committees and municipal agencies. In recognition of Judy’s work, the Massachusetts Chapter of the American Planning Association honored her posthumously in 2002 with its Citizen Planner Award. Judy left the Town a legacy of work to protect open space; work begun, but unfinished, which many Belmont citizens and the Judith K. Record Memorial Conservation Fund are bringing to fruition.

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed people can change the world: indeed it’s the only thing that ever has.”

– Margaret Mead, anthropologist
