Bethany Conservation Commission

April 12th 2018

Meeting Minutes (Approved)


Bruce Loomis called the meeting to order at 8:05pm. Also in attendance were Cathy Rives, Patsy Winer and Matthew Popp. Shaukat Khan and Brian Eitzer were absent. Bruce appointed Matthew as a voting member in place of Shaukat.


The minutes from the previous meeting were reviewed. Not enough members who attended that meeting were present, so the minutes were tabled until the next meeting.


There were no bills or correspondence for the commission.

Bethany’s Rid Litter Day on April 28th was brought up. The commission members will support the event if they are able.


The commission discussed the application and selection process for Conservationist of the Year for 2019 and decided to leave it as is.


The Woodward Silsby Estates subdivision application was reviewed. Since the subdivision already met the town’s open space requirement, the commission decided that no action was necessary.


The Bethany Open Space Appendices were reviewed. The commission worked on updating them. More work is needed before they are completely revised.


 Matthew moved to adjourn the meeting, Cathy seconded. The meeting was adjourned at 8:50pm.



Respectfully submitted,


Matthew Popp

Secretary pro-tempore
