Reservoir Master Plan

The Park & Recreation Commission, Conservation Commission and Reservoir Committee are holding a public meeting to gather input to assist the Town and it's consultant with developing a CPA-funded master plan for improvements to the Arlington Reservoir.

Arlington Reservoir Project message from Leslie Mayer.

The Master Plan Project for the Arlington Reservoir area, which is being funded by the CPA, is underway, and it's going to be an exciting process!  Weston & Sampson has been hired as the consultants on the project.  They are a great firm with a broad range of resources/skills and are very familiar with Arlington, having done the Res Dam rehabilitation project, North Union Spray Park, Hibbert St. and now Robbins Farm Park projects.  David White and I will be heavily involved in the project and attended the kick-off meeting just last week.

We are planning an extensive public input process, beginning with an on-site public meeting tentatively scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 30 from 10am-2pm.  Like the Robbins Farm meeting, Weston & Sampson will be at the Res that day to listen - seeking input and ideas.  There will be tours around the Res lead by members of the team and some large aerial photos of the property in a couple of locations, so that ideas can be captured and noted.

There will be notices and alerts sent out by the Town about the public meeting, but we wanted to start spreading the word, so that people will begin to think about the Res and the improvements that they would like to see.  So, if you could help us get the word out about the project and the meeting, we'd appreciate it.
