Meeting was convened at the Lamoine Town Hall by Anne LaBossiere at 6:36 p.m.

Topics Discussed:

  1. We were informed that the planning board meeting of December 10, 2013 was productive. For further information access the minutes on-line from the Lamoine Town Web-Site.
  2. Plastic recycling: Both Hannaford and Shaws send their local recycled plastic to Maine distribution centers. Hannaford's plastics are then sent out of state to be recycled into new plastic bags.
  3. Dark Skies: Peter Lord of the Astronomy Institute of Maine spoke at a public meeting sponsored by LCC at the Lamoine Town Hall a few years ago. The Astronomy Institute web-site has information about what communities and home owners can do to limit the amount of light pollution they produce.
  4. The SPLASH Newsletter from the Ocean Conservancy was passed around. It contains ideas for spring and fall coastal cleanups.

The minutes of the November 13, 2013 meeting were accepted as distributed.

Doug will go to Walmart to ask about their plastic recycling.
