Shrewsbury residents discuss Open Space Plan

Shrewsbury - The people of Shrewsbury have a lot to say about open spaces. Fifty residents attended a March 19 community forum in which an early version of the town's Open Space Recreation Plan was presented, and its goals were discussed. The Open Space plan is a requirement for the town to be eligible for grants and funding from the state. It is a standard document reviewed by the state's Department of Conservation Services (DCS) that compiles information on the community, environmental and conservation interests, the vision and needs of the community, and goals and objectives for the town. The plan is good for seven years and provides an outline for how the town will address open space issues during that period. The town has created two plans in its past, one in 1987, and one in 1999.
