Welcome to Be True To Dover

Be True To Dover is a group of Dover residents and concerned citizens who are committed to the unique character of our Town — our neighbors, our community and our environment. We are extremely concerned about the proposal to develop the railroad bed -- which runs through the length of our town -- into a “greenway”.


Share the Truth

women-jumpingA concerted campaign is underway to authorize the Dover Selectmen to enter into a 99-year lease with the MBTA for the abandoned rail bed running through Dover (Article 19). Giving the Dover Selectmen authority to enter into a 99-year lease is the first step in the process of developing the rail bed.

Misinformation is circulating regarding the development of the rail bed. See our page on Misinformation/Truths. We believe Dover’s citizens should be fully informed with the facts before voting on Article 19.

Please read this information and share it with your family and friends. Be True To Dover has developed this website to supply accurate information, answer questions and provide transparency around the issue of developing the rail bed.

Feel free to contact us with any questions you have.
