· Election of new chair
· Town Trails - Since the NHDOT is rebuilding the bridge over Orange Brook with a little parking area on the upstream side of Cardigan Mountain Road and some improved access to Orange Brook, we should revisit access to Orange Basin. The access will be on the southwest side of the new bridge which means at some point those wishing to visit Orange Basin would need to cross the brook.
· Sustainability -Aaron re Orange’s sustainability and energy efficiency.
