After six months of public meetings and comments, next week the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) is set to release the draft Resource Management Plan (RMP) for the 2500-acre Middlesex Fells Reservation just north of Boston. The draft plan will serve as the guide for recreation and natural resource management at the Fells.
DCR is slated to present an overview of the plan’s contents and recommendations at a public meeting in Medford on September 14. After the meeting, the full draft plan will be available to the public on the DCR website for a 60-day comment period.
If you enjoy the Fells and care about its resources, we urge you to participate in the planning process, since it will determine the future management of this unique urban treasure.
Take Action: Attend the public meeting on September 14 from 6:30 to 8:00 pm to hear about the plan for the Fells.
Where: McGlynn School Auditorium,
3001 Mystic Valley Parkway, Medford, MA
