A quick weekly update before Everglades-style weather moves in this week…
CONCOM TO DISCUSS HANCOCK STREET WETLANDS VIOLATION MONDAY NIGHT
The Conservation Commission has scheduled a meeting Monday night to discuss the ongoing review of some clearing that took place on a piece of land off Hancock Street that abuts Ames Nowell State Park. Abington and state environmental officials in May halted work by the owner of the land, who was using heavy machinery to widen a path down towards Cleveland Pond. Two seperate wetlands were impacted by the clearing and the Conservation Commission has been working with the property owner to stabilize the land and fix it. But there may be more action to come. Representatives from the Conservation Commission visited the site last week, and the agenda for tonight’s meeting – on which this project is the only agenda item – says “discussion and vote on enforcement order” for the property.
