Ashley Community Forest Public Meetings

Let’s put Ashley Community Forest on the map!

The first in a series of informational meetings to give community members more information about the project and have their questions answered have been scheduled:

  • February 11th 6:30-8pm at Barrett Hall in Strafford
  • February 13 6:30-8pm at Sharon Elementary School

Residents from Sharon and Strafford and other interested folks, are welcome to attend either meeting. Ashley Community Forest Committee members will make a presentation and encourage discussion and questions about the project. Light refreshments will be served.

Members from the Ashley Community Forest Committee will be presenting the history of the project, the value to the communities as a recreational, educational and forestry resource and general information regarding the legal and management structures that make up the proposed co-ownership by the two towns. Most of all we want to hear your questions about the project. There will also be additional meetings in the spring in advance of anticipated special town meeting votes.
