The public hearing is to solicit comments from the public regarding local legislation to control visitors to the Barberville Natural Resource Area when and if the Town acquires the property from "The Nature Conservancy". The Nature Conservancy is planning on providing the Town with a stewardship check to care for and maintain the property but a local law is needed to ensure the public's conduct on the property is acceptable and appropriate. A copy of the draft local law can be accessed by opening this announcement on the News page. The public comment period will remain open at least through March 1, 2018.
