CONSERVATION NOTES

From the Issue: 
July/August 2010
    A full printed copy of Troy’s new Natural Resources Inventory, Phase I, with accessory maps, is now available for public inspection at the Gay-Kimball Library.  Completion of this comprehensive and informative document establishes the groundwork in meeting the Conservation Commission’s state mandate to index Troy’s geographical and ecological resources. 
    This serves as the basis for Phase 2 of the NRI, as approved at our Town Meeting, which will generate the fine-scale ground assessment necessary to validate specific areas of concern, such as future siting criteria for zoning practices, with computer-based maps, identifying strengths and challenges to Troy’s future growth.
    On May 15, we hit the Daily Double!  First, a well-deserved tip of the hat goes out to Marty Decatur and the Fire Department, for helping make the Conservation Commission-sponsored Annual Fishing Derby a huge success, with divine provision of beautiful weather.
    We also experienced a successful Troy Cleanup Day, kicking off a continuing process, as trash pick-up will be ongoing throughout the summer and fall. Just call Lynn Estep-Goodridge at 242-7776 for blue bags. Remember: full bags can be left on the side of the road for pick-up by road crews. If any bags don’t get picked up, either let Jim Dicey know, or bring them in to the Transfer Station.  Help make Troy a better, cleaner town for all of us!
    Conservation Commission meetings are held monthly at the Troy Library at 6 PM.  They are free and open to the public
