The committee liaises to the Town Council through the Councilmember for F&B as does the Woods Committee whose purview is the health and maintenance of the two Town forests.

Through the F&B committee interested residents can be part of ensuring our continued tree canopy by selecting new trees for planting each year, determining tree health needs, developing landscaping plans around public buildings and in our parks, supervising installation of new trees, and planting annual/perennial plants at the Town entrance and the Town Hall. F&B meeting times are published in the Town Bulletin; we’d love to have you join us!

The committee currently consists of Georgette Cole (Chair), Audrey Maskery (Council liaison), Deborah Mehlferber, Ann Briggs, John Compton and Carolyn O’Connor.If you are curious or have any questions, please contact any of us.
