Review and Recommendation of Open Space Plan
Christine Lindberg explained that Conservation Agent Judith Schmitz requested that the Planning Board review and give recommendations on the open space plan that had been started by the previous agent, Michele Grenier.  It is mandated by the State that the open space plan be updated every few years.  An updated open space plan is one of the stipulations required for some grant money that the Town had applied for.  The open space plan addresses the things put in place by the Town to preserve open space; there isn’t much in report about recreation.  It is a statement of where the Town is now and does not put additional restrictions on anything that isn’t already on the books.

Mr. Aldenberg commented on the glue factory being dangerous and an eyesore.

Ms. Lindberg said she would ask the Town Administrator for an update on the glue factory property and report back to the Board.
