Open Space Committee

The creation of an Open Space Committee was a recommendation of the 2010 Open Space and Recreation Plan.  In January 2017, the Board of Selectmen established the Committee with representation from the Conservation Commission, Council on Aging, Historical Commission, Planning Board, Recreation Commission, and Board of Selectmen.  The FRCOG Planning Department was contracted to provide planning services for the revision of the plan.

On May 21, 2018 the Open Space Committee and the Board of Selectmen presented the draft 2018 Open Space and Recreation Plan, opening the draft to public comment.  The plan was submitted to the State for review on July 31, 2018.   The State responded with feedback and requested a revised copy of the Plan.  On November 28, 2018 the revised plan was submitted to the State.
