Friday, January 25
STOCKBRIDGE — The Stockbridge Community Preservation Committee will hold a public informational hearing at Town Hall on Thursday at 6:30 p.m. The committee will invite comments on the needs, possibilities, and resources of the town regarding community preservation. It will also answer questions on its mission and the protocol for submitting proposals. Total allocations for the fiscal year 2008 were $250,00.

The committee will be reviewing projects with the objective of helping Stockbridge to create affordable housing, acquire and/or restore historic buildings and sites, and enhance outdoor recreation. The board also hopes to protect open spaces through the acquisition of land in fee or of development rights. Land will be considered for park and recreational uses and the protection of public drinking water, well fields, aquifers and recharge areas, farmland, forests, wetland, scenic areas, wildlife preserves and other conservation areas.

The committee values public input and encourages interested and concerned citizens to attend.

Copies of the Stockbridge Community Preservation Committee request for proposals and the mission statement may be obtained at the Selectman's office at Town Hall or www.townofstockbridge.com.

Information: (413) 637-2486.
