Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation to Host Community Meeting About Great Hosmer Pond

 

The Great Hosmer Pond Task Force worked throughout 2016 to find solutions to reduce conflict on the waters of Great Hosmer between scullers and motor boaters.  As part of these conversations, it became clear that an exploration of whether a revision of the “Use of Public Water Rules” could help reduce conflict.

Members of the Watershed Management Division of the Vermont DEC will host a public meeting on this issue to gain additional input from the communities that use the pond as the DEC moves forward with the rule-making process.  The meeting will be this Saturday, January 21, at 10 AM at the Craftsbury Academy gymnasium.

While not in Greensboro, this process could possibly impact the uses of other lakes in our region.  We encourage those of you interested in issues surrounding the public use of state-owned water bodies to attend this meeting.
