The Town of Westport is an essential partner in protecting Westport’s unique rural landscape. The “Town” includes various staff as well as volunteer boards and committees, such as the Conservation Commission, Board of Selectmen, Community Preservation Committee, and Agriculture/Open Space Bond Fund Committee. It also includes the voters at Town Meeting who consistently support the preservation of open space in Westport. Last week we spoke with Select Board Chairman Richard W. Brewer who wished to share the following remarks:

“The Board of Selectmen recognize the contribution made by the Westport Land Conservation Trust in preserving our land resources. We enjoy working with you (WLCT) and appreciate the preparation involved with the projects that come before us. We do not forget the ongoing maintenance work which benefits everyone and we thank the volunteers who help. Thank you for helping to preserve our precious resources.”
