Bethany Conservation Commission

July 23, 2009

The meeting was called to order by chairman Ken Martin at 8:05 PM. Also in attendance were Audrey Eisenstadt and Bruce Loomis.

The minutes of June 25, 2009 were read and corrected regarding the “farm pond” on the Woodlot Farm proposal. It now reads “The farm pond will not be permitted in the wetlands (as per SCCRWA) but will be permitted in the buffer”. Bruce moved to accept as corrected and Ken seconded – motion passed.

The minutes of April 15, 2009 were re-reviewed and three corrections made:
1) Start time corrected to be 7:30 PM
2) In section 4b – “Research item – what did the Airport study report propose” was deleted.
3) The time of adjournment was filled in as 9:35 PM.
Audrey moved to accept and Bruce seconded – motion passed.

Ken reviewed a list of minute dates from the Town Clerk that were reported as missing. Only June 11, 2009 remains unaccounted for. Will Brinton took the minutes and is out of town at the present time.

The commission received a thank you note from Doug Rives. Doug was awarded one of the two conservation awards at Bethany Community School.

The Woodlot Farm/J.P. Garcia subdivision proposal now has the additional wording “no agricultural activity in the wetland area” as part of the approval requirements.

Ken reported that the Conservationist Of The Year plaque still has to be updated for recent recipients not yet added.

The meeting was adjourned at 8:35 PM.

Respectfully submitted,

Bruce Loomis
Secretary Pro-tempore
