CONSERVING LAND REDUCES OUR TAXES FOREVER

From the Issue: 
March 2011
Your Conservation Commission is pleased to announce that four large maps depicting Phase I of Troy’s Natural Resources Inventory [NRI] are now on display in the meeting room at Gay-Kimball Library.  We particularly wish to express our heartfelt thanks to Evan John for his outstanding service and generous contribution in framing the maps, and to Library Director Catherine Callegari for coordinating their display.  These will be especially appreciated by town residents who are now able to view and examine the graphical data in such a direct, accessible, and tangible manner.  These maps, along with several others from Phase I NRI, can be viewed in a large binder for public use at the Selectmen’s Office (outside on table). Remember, conserving land reduces our taxes FOREVER.

A Conservation Training Course is being offered by the Monadnock Community Conservation Partnership on four consecutive Thursday evenings in late March – early April.  The course will explore answers to such questions as:

What is land conservation?
How can it benefit my town and its landowners?
How can town volunteers encourage protection of important natural resources, landmark places, and rural character?

If you are interested in these and other questions related to protecting the health and beauty of Troy’s landscape and natural resources, please call Dorrie Upton at 876-3626, or the Monadnock Conservancy at 357-0600.

Conservation Commission meetings are held monthly at the Troy Library at 6 PM.  They are free and open to the public. Check the TTN Calendar for dates!
