The town of Norwell is updating its Open Space and Recreation Plan and will seek the continued participation of residents in the final OSRP virtual public forum from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Nov. 19.
The 2020 OSRP update will set the goals and priorities that will guide the town’s actions in maintaining, protecting and improving its open spaces, parks and recreational resources and make the town eligible for state funds to acquire and improve conservation and recreation land.
Hundreds of residents have made contributions to the 2020 OSRP update by completing the town wide survey and attending the first virtual public forum in October. A working draft of the 2020 Open Space and Recreation Plan will be posted on the project website at https://bit.ly/3eSETfj.
The forum will consist of a presentation, interactive exercises and small group discussions. Live virtual attendance and participation through Zoom is strongly encouraged. Participants must RSVP in advance at https://bit.ly/36hhbFn. Participants will receive a link that they can use to join the forum.
Participants that are unable to attend the meeting with a computer, tablet or smartphone through Zoom can also call in to the forum with the number 646 876 9923. The ID number is 955 3114 5040. The passcode is 024147.
