STRATEGIC LAND PROTECTION COMMITTEE VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!  The Strategic Land Protection Committee, is a committee that identifies and makes recommendations regarding land purchases or conservation easements for Chester NH. In recent years, the committee has existed as a subcommittee of the conservation commission and has helped save several key properties for conservation purposes. Because we are a growing community and have other town needs we would like to expand the scope of this committee to include properties for other uses.  This committee will act as a new standalone committee with a mission to look beyond conservation and view other lands important to recreation, sports, schools, cemeteries, municipal complexes, and perhaps the arts.  The committee will consist of at least a selectman, conservation committee members, a member of the planning board, and at least two members at large. This committee may also have alternative members if you do not wish to be a full voting member.  The committee will meet once a month to develop the strategic direction for land use, purchases, and conservation easements for Chester NH.   Our first meeting will be on Tuesday November 7, 2017 at the Town Hall.   If you are interested in being part of this committee or would just like to learn more about this opportunity please contact Debra Doda at 603-887-4979 or email at DDoda@chesternh.org
