Taking the First Step in Saving East Point as a Wildlife Preserve

We would like to share with you the Board of Selectmen’s plan to preserve East Point as a Wildlife Preserve.

We preface our remarks with acknowledgment that the Town addressing the health, safety and security of our residents is our top priority at this difficult and uncertain time. It is our most important priority, and we, like many other communities, have enacted a number of measures in an effort to keep our community healthy and safe. One of the uncertainties resulting from the pandemic is how Government will operate moving forward.

Currently, the Annual Town Meeting is scheduled for May 16, 2020. Until advised otherwise, we need to prepare for the Meeting as we would in any year.

It is conjunction with this Town Meeting that we initiate this action. We are at a tipping point with the projected environmental impact to East Point, and we believe that now is the time to act.
