September Meeting Minutes
Recreation Commission Meeting, September 20 2012
Present: Eoana Sturges, Skip Brown, Mike Wickenden
1. Called to Order:
The meeting was called to order by acting Chair, Eoana Sturges, at 7:00 pm.
2. Public input:
3. New Business:
A. Bids for the trail at South Hero Recreation Park were opened.
B. There was a discussion of the expired license agreement between the State and the Town for the old rail trail between West Shore Rd. and Station Rd. It is the opinion of this Commission that the trail was maintained by the Recreation Path Committee, not the Recreation Commission, and that renewing the license is a Selectboard matter and maintenance should be discussed with the other committee.
4. Old Business:
A. The Tryathalon on August 25th was a great success.
B. There was a discussion of the reroute of West Shore Road at White’s Beach. This commission would like to see the reroute permanent, with the road portion turned into grass inside of the new fence. If a permanent reroute is not possible, we would like to extend the temporary reroute in the future from May 1st to September 30th. This will be brought to the Selectboard for their consideration.
5. Other Business:
A. The temporary reroute of West Shore Rd. at White’s Beach was removed on Tuesday, September 4th, and the swim buoys were removed on September 7th.
The meeting adjourned at 7:50 pm.
