The town, in coordination with the Community Preservation Committee, is beginning its second phase of planning and design for Powers Farm and hopes for some public input at a meeting set for 7 p.m. Thursday in Chapin Hall, on the second floor of Town Hall. Discussion will be led by the Powers Farm Phase II Design Committee and Kyle Zick Landscape Architecture Inc. Phase I improvements now completed include creation of access from North Main Street and construction of a parking lot, a pavilion with picnic tables, a toddler play area, and several walking paths. Town Planner Michele Tyler said current ideas for Phase II include establishment of more access points and parking, rest rooms, and walking paths suitable for people with mobility challenges. “We're also thinking about what to do with the pond and contemplating some agricultural uses at the farm,” Tyler said, adding that could include community gardening. A second session to gather public input will be scheduled in early October.
