Minutes of August 16, 2016

Present:  Ginni McByrne, Jim McByrne, Eric White and Becky Cummings.  Leslie Casey from the Planning Board was also present.

The minutes of the May meeting were approved as read.  No meetings were held in June or July.

A work day on the trail to Giant’s Cradle is planned for August 27.  Eric will send emails out to those interested in Sullivan trails.  Meet at the library at 9am and then head out.

It was noted that some money taken in from NH vanity plates is ear-marked for state grants for conservation planning.   Is this something the commission could use?  Leslie mentioned the book Designing Small Parks – perhaps there are some ideas there for Jewett Park.  Discussion followed about community and what comes first.  Do we need a sense of community to create the park or would the park help create a sense of community?   At this time the most interest seems to be in the Sullivan trail system.  

The application for the proposed cell tower on Apple Hill was conditionally passed by the Planning Board.

Meeting adjourned at 7:45pm.

Respectfully Submitted,
Becky Cummings
