Tree By-Law Public Hearing Weds May 4 – Last One Before Town Meeting
Here is my last unbiased post on trees this week. Consider yourselves warned. I too get to send my messages but mine shall not be anonymous. Unless written by my red oak tree and I will leave it to him/her to decide that, or perhaps sign a waiver. Yes, my trees talk to me…yours don’t? That may explain some things.
On Wednesday, May 4 at 7 pm, the Planning Board will host one more Public Discussion before the Sustainable Tree Initiative/Tree Bylaw comes up for a vote at Town Meeting on May 9. I have lost count of how many sessions Planning has done to get input from the town. Let’s say 15 million just to round up slightly. Fine, I got the real number from the Planning Board itself: Wednesday will be the 4th Public Hearing (the state requires 1), plus 3 listening sessions, plus one on-camera deliberation.

Once the Owl received the recording of the League of Women Voters’ info session from April 28, it shall also be posted.
Listen, learn and hug your trees. I do. My trees. Your trees too if they remain.
