The daylily and hosta planting for in front of the Post Office and 17 Main St is on deck, with the money coming from the planting budget. The bandstand project will be done by Mark Schaal and the lawn seeding and fertilizer program will be done by James Stacey.
As part of the Main St Project, a light on the flagpole to illuminate the flag and the church is again being looked at, with a meeting with Mark Spinalli. A non grid system was looked at with the PV on the roof of the bandstand, not acceptable, so now LED lighting will be run underground, (from the bandstand?) which will be environmentally sound because of its low energy consumption.
Mike will be talking to Jerry Gagne about getting a base map or Stewardship plan/map for the common. Jerry is Pres. Of Meridian Landservices.
