VCC meeting. April 13, 2010- Minutes

7:00 pm, Present: Paul Mitnik, David Jenney, Mary Ellen Johnston, Holly Weidner, and guests from the Dam Road Association.

Paul provided some information on land that Laurah Brown is considering donating to the town for conservation. This is a one-acre lot on Dam Road and Seven Mile Stream near Webber Pond. The Association members came to give us some background on the way the landowners handle their road maintenance. They seemed open to the idea that the town may take over the property that Ms. Brown wants to give us. We also discussed the need for bridge improvements and parking. This land donation will have to be approved at Town Meeting in June.

The Farmers Market will feature a new buyers club (coop) that is being formed by the Crown of Maine distributors. Since they moved into the old bean factory in North Vassalboro, they have developed a network of farms in central Maine and they can source foods from many others throughout the state.

The next VCC meeting will be on May 11, at 7PM. All are welcome.
