Parks Committee Report

The Lamoine Parks Committee was formed following passage at the March 2005 Town Meeting of the Parks Ordinance. The Selectmen appointed the following people to the Parks Committee:

  • Christa Brey
  • Kerry Galeaz
  • Mary Henry
  • Thomas Barr
  • Steve Valleau
  • Bonnie Moretto, Alternate
  • William Fennelly, Alternate

During our organizational meeting Christa Brey was selected as chair, Mary Henry as vice-chair, and Steve Valleau as secretary. The Committee met with the Chief Deputy of the Hancock County Sheriff's Department to discuss rules and enforcement of them at the various parks. At the 2006 town meeting the Parks Committee is proposing some major changes to the ordinance in order to better regulate some of the activities at Lamoine's three publicly owned areas, Lamoine Beach , Bloomfield Park and Marlboro Beach .

The committee is also proposing construction of a kiosk type sign at each area to tell a little about the park and to show what the rules are. Most of the funding for that is proposed to come from a parks fund that has built up over the past decade. The committee is working on a fund-raising road race in memory of Bill Pinkham and many thanks in advance go to Robin Emery for helping to organize that.

This new committee has been a learning experience as far as defining its role, the expectations of the town, and implementing the many good ideas that have come from the committee members. We always welcome input into what our citizens would like to experience with our parks. Please consult the town office or the town website for our meeting dates.
