PLEASE JOIN US ON MONDAY 3/6 AT THE SALEM BOARD OF SELECTMEN'S MEETING TO SHOW OUR SOLIDARITY IN ADDRESSING THE NEED FOR ADDITIONAL WATER SOURCES FOR THE TOWN OF SALEM...HELP MAINTAIN WATER LEVELS IN CANOBIE LAKE
The CLPA Board of Directors want to update you regarding their new plans to meet with the Salem Board of Selectmen. As you know the original request to actually get on an agenda was denied after data was submitted regarding concern with the level of the lake. Then, at the last minute, the Salem Board of Selectmen cancelled the meeting that we planned to attend on the 27th.
The CLPA president, Dale Valvo, has met with Salem Town Manager, Leon Goodwin, and has informed him of our intent to attend and speak when the floor is open for public comment. He and board members have decided to attend the next Selectmen's meeting (March 6th at 7PM) and express our views at the time for public input. These meetings take place at Salem's offices on Geremonty Drive.
Unfortunately we will have to wait to the end of the meeting to speak as that is when the floor is open for public comments/topics. At this point an agenda is not published but typically these meetings last for 2-3 hours. Our leadership will be there from the beginning.
We encourage you to attend this meeting. Nothing would be better than to have "standing room only" and show the Selectmen how serious we are. Dale Valvo, CLPA President, will have a prepared statement. We are also inviting interested citizens, officials from Windham, and local news media.
The CLPA Board members look forward to seeing you on the 6th.
