Frank Harrison began the study session byupdating those present on his work. Frank has been entering all conservationland onto an interactive google style map and updating what is and is notallowed at each site.
Some suggestions were to: Make a list andadd it to the website. Group or categorize land by uses and restrictions.Anything the town owns and the allowable uses should be listed. Easement deedswill need to be reviewed to assure correct disclosure of restrictions and uses.
The intent is to have a live active mapwhich could list a 5 year management plan and include protection, public accessand utilization as defined by the individual easements.
