  1. We need to start being creative by thinking out side of the what is now the complacent norm we seem to be entangled. I almost get a sense of smugness that is present in a portion of the community.

  2. Maybe the Master Gardeners’ Club could apply to buy the small plot of property South of the Perry Street bridge from Stykmens to use as a plant garden and educational area. The grant is available to not for profit organizations. This would also improve the appearance to the entrance into the town. With maybe development of the opposite side of the creek this would be a borrowed view and pleasant background from opposite shore.
