Old Business

  1. Minutes from the August 4, 2016 meeting were accepted with one correction.

  5. Newsletter - tabled until Carole's return.

  8. Farm Mediations - none.
    • The dispute on Rt 129 appears to have dissipated with the movement of the animals. Otherwise, there has been no communication with us.
  9. Other Old Business - none
  10. New Business
    • Talked about having a booth at the next Loudon Old Home Day.
    • Discovered two new farms in Loudon; by virtue of Dave Rice listening in. They are The Towle farm and Osborne's farm (Red Door farm?) on Loudon's section of Upper City Road. We should investigate getting them on the new map.
