This session of the radio show shares my introductory conversation with the Town of Franklin Conservation Agent Breka Li Goodlander, CWS, PWS. We had our conversation via conference bridge.
This session we spend time talking about the Open Space & Recreation Plan (OSRP) now being updated
OSRP is part of the Master Plan, a plan for a plan
Inventory of open space & recreation assets
Input from community to build plan, feedback from community on plan draft
Series of focus groups, public forums, survey, etc. used to gather the input
The conversation runs about 16 minutes. Let’s listen to my conversation with Breeka Li. Audio file -> https://franklin-ma-matters.captivate.fm/episode/fm-922-town-of-franklin-open-space-recreation-plan-overview-01-12-23
