Farm Advisory Plans New Sewage System at Rogers Road Property

by Bobby Blair
April 28, 2018

Members of the Community Farm Advisory Board met Thursday night to discuss planning for a proposed new septic system. The current system for the house located on the property is well dated and doesn't meet code. Paul Saulnier, below left, of CIVILized Solutions attended the meeting and offered his company's engineering services for free. Saulnier described the process the advisory board must undertake to complete the new system which will be relocated from the front yard to the rear of the property. The farm advisory board also enlisted the advice of Con/Com Chairman Chris Bajdek. The farm currently has a proposed conservation restriction, but no entity currently holds the restriction. Bajdek, below forefront, felt that the issue fell outside his commission's perview of the conservation area of the 32.2 acres and fell under the supervision of the board of selectmen. Chairwoman Kris Westland will meet with the BOS on Monday April 30th to request approval to proceed with the project. A review by the Board of Health and Planning Board will also be required.

In other farm news, Chairman of the Friends of the Farm PJ Kilkelly said that completion of the renovation of the barn on the property should be completed by the end of June. Friends of the Farm will be selling daffodil bunches this weekend  at Coffee Haven to support the farm. A greenhouse donated by the Downtown Marigold Project will also be built on the property by Memorial Day, just in time for the farm's Family Farm Day in early June.
