Bethany Conservation Commission

October 13, 2011

The meeting was called to order at 8:08 by Bruce Loomis. Also in attendance were Brian Eitzer, Cathy Rives, and Lisa Tavolacci.

Brian moved and Bruce seconded a motion to accept the September 8, 2011 minutes. The motion passed.

Bruce passed out an e-mail trail of his correspondence with the Bethany Community School on the topic of how the sixth grade students are chosen to receive the Conservation awards. He stated that he would send them one more e-mail on the topic.

The Woodward development plan is now a “First Cut” plan that therefore does not require that open space issues be addressed. The plan still appears to show an easement for a trail to the likely location of open space if there is further development. The commission would like to keep recommending that this easement remains as this plan moves forward.

There was a discussion of the upcoming CACIWIC conference, it was mentioned that any commissioners planning on going should register by Oct. 31 as the registration fee goes up after this date.

Brian moved to adjourn at 8:45, Lisa seconded and the motion passed.

Respectfully submitted,

Brian Eitzer
Secretary pro-tempore
