The commission invited Lisa Morin, Program Coordinator from the Belknap County Conservation District. Ms. Morin reviewed the 2008 Farm Bill information will the commission and discussed different areas of priorities as set forth by the Board of supervisors. Ms. Morin asked for input for our priorities and whether or not we agreed with what was outlined in her brochure. Ms. Morin also outlined the discussions that have been taking place at Swain Farm, and all the agencies that are working in collaboration to preserve the Swain property to keep it as a working farm. Ms. Morin also reported some of the other things her agency is doing such as; writing a conservation innovation grant to convert a greenhouse to solar energy, working with the Town of Gilford to write an aquatic mitigation grant for Gunstock Brook, and they held a Milfoil treatment program. John Earley requested to have more information on the treatment of Milfoil.

Possible Easement-Dion’s Property

Brian Mokler stepped down from the board, for the purpose of this discussion.

Chair Crosby reported Rob Dion left him a message stating that he and his wife are still waiting to have further discussion with their accountant and will get back to us. Mr. Dion’s message also included that he and his wife would like to get 90K for the easement. The commission will wait to hear from the Dion’s before further action or discussion occurs.

Brain Mokler is back on the board.

Earth Day Lindley reported that we will be getting trash bags from NH the Beautiful and in addition, we will receive 800 daffodil bulbs for the community that will be handed out in the fall, so that residents can plant them roadside. There is an article in today’s Winnisquam Echo; SantBani will call Lindley on the night of 4/22 with the info on what roads they covered for Earth day so there is no duplication of efforts. There was a request for separation of the roadside trash, it will be suggested when the bags are handed out. The DPW director will be having his men pick up the trash and bring it to the transfer station after it’s collected in the bags. It would be nice to have a map of the town so we have reference as to where the efforts will occur and so that we can track clean up, Mary will look for hers and donate it. Lindley will email the flyer so the commission members can forward it to others as well as members will be posting signs throughout the community and surrounding areas for public notice. Other Outreach plans/ideas Lindley will confirm the May speaker
