If you want to have a say in what happens next at the Hilltop Reservation, you’ve got until the close of business today, June 30, to send an email with your thoughts.
The Hilltop Conservancy, the non-profit that is leading the replanting and restoring the reservation, says that Monday is the deadline for public input on the Hilltop’s master plan, which is being developed by consultants from CME Associates for Essex County.
This is not about building more buildings or sports fields on the Hilltop. CME is looking to hear your thoughts on the Hilltop as a nature preserve, a place for walking or biking, or simply a quiet green spot. Send an e-mail to CME’s Jim Clarkin at [email protected], with your full name, where you live, and what you think is important for the Hilltop. Theresa Trapp, who is the Conservancy’s treasurer and architect of the replanting work, says that, if your thoughts are as simple as “keep it the way it is”, that’s valuable input too.
