Conservation Commission Minutes

Minutes - November 10, 2021 (Draft, subject to correction)




Members present: Larissa Thomas, Kerry Diskin, Mike Jordan

Others: Jeff Cosulich Parks Commission, Carolyn Ackerman


Meeting convened at 7:00 m by Larissa

1)    Approval of 10/13/21 minutes

2)    Marlboro Beach traffic management project: discussion around people driving around boulders, camping, and parking on areas to be revegetated and how to prevent these occurrences from happening in the future.  Since winter season is approaching and the traffic volume will likely decrease, the Commission decided to reevaluate the issue in the spring.  The Commission also decided to place six additional signs along the area to be protected, and to have Richard McMullen adjust the placement of the boulders so that they are flush with the edge of the vegetation. 

3)    Carolyn Ackerman discussed her project, plant life in the supralittoral zone, for the Maine Master Naturalist Program.  We discussed partnering with her to develop interpretive materials based on her project that can be posted on the town website and/or mounted on signs at Marlboro Beach.  Carolyn will develop ideas for the signs over the winter and get back to us in the spring.

4)    Remote meetings policy: a public hearing had been advertised and was opened at this point in the meeting to accept any testimony; however, no members of the public had come to the meeting to discuss the policy. Thus, the public hearing was promptly closed, and the commission voted to approve the remote meeting policy.

5)    Conservation award: we voted to defer discussion to a later meeting.

6)    Other business: none

Meeting adjourned at 7:48pm
