Open Space and Recreation Plan to be Focus of Community Conversation Thursday Evening

Hamilton’s Open Space and Recreation Plan is being rewritten and residents will have a chance to have their voices heard at a meeting this week.

Hamilton open spaceHamilton residents are invited to a community conversation about the open space and recreation needs and opportunities on Thursday, Oct. 29 from 6-8 p.m. at the Hamilton Senior Center, 299 Bay Road.

The meeting will be the start of a public discussion as part of an updating of the town’s Open Space and Recreation Plan. The prior plan was completed several years ago and state regulations require that the document be updated since the existing version is out of date.

Some topics up for consideration include preservation of open space, scenic views and wildlife habitat. The meeting will also include gathering ideas about protecting the town’s water resources, rural character and agrarian heritage.

Recreational facilities and programs will also be discussed and attendees will be able to describe whether the existing facilities and programs meet their needs. Trails in Hamilton are also part of the plan, including bicycle and horse trails.
