AYER -- The town is updating its Open Space and Recreation Plan and the OSRP Update Committee is requesting your input. All are invited to attend the meeting at Town Hall on Monday, Jan. 29 at 7 p.m.

Public input on Ayer's open space and recreation goals will be received as the Town finalizes its new open space and recreation seven-year action plan.

Your attendance and input are important!

Through thoughtful planning and active stewardship, Ayer's open spaces, critical habitats, neighborhood parks, and quality recreation facilities will continue and improve to meet the needs of the community and be a resource for generations to come.

The OSRP update process and this public meeting provide the opportunity to assess where we are, where we would like to go, and how we might get there. Planning now to protect important open space and recreational facilities can greatly enhance the attractiveness of our town and encourage thoughtful and compatible growth in the future.

A copy of the draft OSRP update (2018-2024) is available for viewing in the Board of Selectmen's Office at Town Hall and on the Town website at http://www.ayer.ma.us.

Bring your thoughts and comments on the plan to preserve and improve conservation and recreation resources or send written responses to town planner, Mark Archambault, at marchambault@ayer.ma.us.
