There were no changes to the agenda.
The minutes from January 19 and 26th were unanimously accepted.

Town meeting:
We plan on staffing a table at the meeting with information about the Emerald Ash Borer.

We confirmed the presentation by Sam Schneski on April 20th from 7-8:30 at the BBCC. He will be speaking to the new changes to the Current Use Program.

We have plans to circulate information about the Emerald Ash Borer as it has been identified in Guilford.

The NRI report is complete in draft form. Several board members will be working on finalizing the report. We hope to be able to present it sometime this summer at the BBCC as well as on the newly designed web site. 

We had a discussion about the town’s Rules and Procedures that were circulated by the select board. 

A tentative plan to install both permanent and temporary wildlife crossing signs will be presented to the select board for approval. 

Guilford Cares walks:
Last year GC sponsored several walks that were well attended. We brainstormed several walks that might be of interest and will be led by a GCC board member.

IPads: We hope to keep them at the town office. 

Linda Lembke showed us a new map, developed by Jeff Nugent, entitled Mountains of Windham County, Vermont.

New business:
AVCC Tiny Grant available.
A new town administrator has been hired. 

Next meeting is March 16 at 5:30 PM.

Respectfully submitted,
Karen Murphy, Clerk
