Invitation to Public Forum Seeking Input for the Open Space and Recreation Plan

Invitation to Public Forum Seeking Input for the Open Space and Recreation Plan

Sept. 19, 2018  *  7 p.m.

Second Floor Meeting Room at Town Offices

The Open Space Committee cordially invites all town boards, committees, department heads and citizens to attend a forum on Wednesday, Sept. 19, at 7 p.m.  in the Second Floor Meeting Room of Town Offices.

The Open Space Committee is seeking public input into Community Needs, Goals and Objectives to be incorporated into the town’s 2018 Open Space and Recreation Plan. The state Department of Conservation and Recreation requires every city and town in Massachusetts to update its plan every 5-7 years. The document is intended to act as a guide for local decision makers concerning issues of conservation and recreation.  A current plan also is a requirement of eligibility for grants the town may seek for state funding of, among other things, water resource protection, land conservation, trail development, park improvements, and recreation projects.

We look forward to seeing you!
