Meeting was convened at the Lamoine Town Hall by Chairman
Libby at 7:07 p.m.
No comments from Planning Board/Select Board
reported that David Legere had asked not to be re-appointed to the
commission. He was interested in being appointed as a member of the planning
board. That did not happen. Stu asked David if he would like to reconsider
leaving LCC given what the planning board did.
No information has been received re: his response to that
Help with Electronic Waste Pick-up, July 11th-Doug
Stewart and Larry Libby will be there from 8:00 a.m. To 1:00 p.m. Linda
Penkalski will be there from 11:00 a.m. on.
Request from Fred Stocking on Lamoine Conservation
Commission's response to climate change-There
was discussion about the information furnished by Larissa to Fred.
Possible event at Blunts Pond in August-Doug
and Megan Facciolo have been in contact re: her pending follow-up on her
earlier visit to the pond and also on the Family Fun Day. Megan will be out
of town on the August date under discussion and suggested that her assistant
could stand in for her. Doug is recommending that this event be deferred to
mid-September of 2016 when Megan could be present. Some of the activities of
the day would include learning about the nature of the pond's vegetation and
inhabitants, enjoying nature walks on the trails and a cookout as a finale.
Doug also suggested that it would be good to involve the Lamoine Historical
Society in setting up an informational table about the ice harvesting that
was done at the pond and other historical components that would be of
interest to the public. All agreed with Doug's recommendations.
Select a picture for gift cups-These
will be used to give to guest speakers at our public programs. Those present
decided on the “Boulder on the Beach” photo.
Possible Strategic Planning Session in fall-There
was support for this on the part of the commission. Contact with Stu will be
done to provide us with direction.
Ideas for public meeting in fall-Our
October meeting would be on the 14th. Possibly, we would be able
to have a public program then regarding the geology of the Lamoine area.
distributed copies of some of John Peckenham's work to see if any of us were
interested in having copies. The best way to get information re: John's work
would be to put this information into a technical report for dissemination.
Larry said that we had met the match required
for the grant money received for our Simon
WoodsTrail project. A suggestion was made to
have Iris Simon add information
to the trail map re: the name of the group that
gave us the grant . If we need to have a small sign on site with this info, Iris
has figured out that it could be attached to the post holding the mail box which
houses the trail maps.
minutes of the May 13, 2015 meeting were approved
Follow-up actions and who will do them:
Larry will check with David Legere re: his plans concerning accepting Stu's
offer to appoint him as an alternate member of the conservation commission.
If David isn't interested in being on the board in any capacity, Larry will
recommend that Larissa be moved from alternate to regular member. We would
then need to obtain a new alternate.
Larissa will re-send the list of LCC's response to climate change to Fred
Larry will check with Georgiana Pulver about finding the original of the
“Boulder on the Beach” that could be used as the picture on the mug.
Larry will e-mail Stu our thoughts re: doing some strategic planning for the
LCC. We all have copies of An Ordinance to Establish The Lamoine
Conservation Commission. Review
of that would most likely be a part of this strategic planning .
Larry will contact Hal Borns to see about his availability to present
information re: the geology of the area at our fall public meeting on
The meeting was adjourned at 8:25 p.m.
