It was mentioned at the meeting a person or persons is needed to coordinate the use of various facilities in town and maintain a community calendar. Such facilities include various churches, Richards Library, the Masonic Hall, the town senior center, Emerson Town Hall, as well as the school's gymnasium, cafeteria and classrooms. Sharing of recreation facilities between the town and the school now takes place with the regular use of the recreation fields Committee members also noted signage for access to the town hiking trails is needed, including identifying trails up Hackensack Mountain.Other concerns aired include development of an enhanced town-wide recycling program. The next meeting of the town Comprehensive Plan committee is set for Oct. 26, at the elementary school.
