Braintree CC meeting of 27 May 2020


Attending: Sandy Stephens, Paul Shriver, Gina Logan, Linda Morse, Joan Richmond-Hall


Convened at 7:05 pm



Pollinator’s talk

Randolph (Mike Van Dyke) just did a talk on appropriate backyard habitats. Paul will touch base with them and see if we can do a pollinators talk that seems to dovetail with that.


Megan O’Toole let the CC know that the Selectboard is considering a solar array at the old, closed gravel pit and wants our thoughts. We support the concept and would like to be kept in the loop as things develop. (Unanimous vote in favor)
