If you're concerned about conservation issues in Easton, you should attend the Conservation Commission's meeting at 7 p.m. Wednesday at the Town Hall conference room. The commission members are scheduled to discuss a variety of topics, including three cases in which residents allegedly violated town conservation ordinances. The commission will also talk about the possible designation of Orchard Road as a scenic road. A public hearing on that subject is scheduled for Feb. 28.
Several residents have applications pending with the commission to determine the environmental impact of projects. These will also be discussed, as will the Planning and Zoning Commission 's recent rejection of the Saddle Ridge Development.
The commission is also set to discuss a memo from First Selectman Tom Herrmann , who indicated his desire to revise the town's purchasing ordinance to give the first selectman the authority to sign for purchases. The current ordinance gives that responsibility to department heads.
The Conservation Commission has appointed officials who serve for a limited term. The current board is led by Chairman Adam Dunsby and includes Vice Chairman Stephen J. Edwards, Secretary Lea Sylvestro, Stephen Corti, Roy Gosse, Dori Wollen and Peggy Macaluso.
