Sponsored by the Planning Board, Board of Selectmen and the Conservation Commission, the third Environmental Summit drew a crowd of over 40 people to Town Hall on March 15th, including Senator Pam Resort.

Topics discussed included the new EPA stormwater requirements, Sudbury’s Water Resource Protection District Bylaw, the Community Preservation Act, increasing the potential for recreation use of under-utilized town lands, benefits and costs of conservation restrictions, irrigation bylaw requirements and an update from the Earth Decade Committee on their recent accomplishments. It was also noted that the Hop Brook Protection Association will be holding an informational meeting on their town meeting articles on April 1, 2004 at 7:30 pm at the Town Hall.

An action list for follow-up was produced, which solicits the involvement of Sudbury residents on the following topics:

* Updating the Open Space and Recreation Plan – contact the Conservation Commission if you are interested.

* Revising the Water Resource Protection District bylaw and regulations – contact the Planning Board if you are interested.

* Making minor adjustments to the In-ground Irrigation Bylaw – contact the Planning Board if you are interested.
