The commission will periodically appoint sub-committees for the purposes of execution of specific tasks related to land protection and stewardship. The commission currently had 2 active sub-committees: Open Space and Trails Committees. The status of both committees noted below:
Open Space Committee
The Open Space Committee was formed by a public vote at the 2003 town meeting to study the appropriation of funding and designation of open spaces in order to protect the natural resources of the town of Mont Vernon. Original members include:
Joanne Draghetti, Chairman, MVCC Representative
Mary Jean MacGillivary
The Open Space Committe completed it's task as requested by the town and is no longer an active committee.
In 2006 the MVCC appointed a trails committee to focus on establishing and mapping trails on town lands as well as land set aside by developers as public open space. Working in tandem with local trail crews, the Trails Committee has developed and marked a number of trails in the community. Several volunteers currently maintain existing trails on an unofficial basis. More volunteers are needed and welcomed!
