Pond Meadow

(Special Town Meeting 2004 Article 17F)

Town Meeting appropriated funding for the restoration and preservation of the pond at Pond Meadow Park which had become inundated with a foreign invasive plant species (variable leaf water milfoil). The growth was so abundant that the habitat and recreational value of the pond was severely compromised; the degradation negatively impacted the quality of pond life and limited fishing and canoeing. The funds were appropriated to initiate a pond restoration program to eliminate the invasive aquatic plant growth. The project re-established an important recreational and environmental area of Pond Meadow Park.
