The Conservation Commission and Open Space Plan Committee have scheduled an additional public forum to solicit feedback as the
Town shapes its 2025 Open Space and Recreation Plan during a series of listening sessions.

A hybrid forum will be held on Thursday, May 16, at 7 p.m., in the Municipal Service Center, 870 Hammond St. The committee held one public forum on April 8 and will host additional events on Monday, May 6, at 7 p.m., in Town Hall, Room 111, 333 Washington St., and on Thursday, May 23, at 7 p.m., in the Brookline Senior Center, 93 Winchester St.

All residents are welcome to attend.

Meetings will provide an opportunity for community members to offer input, share issues, and discuss opportunities with regard to parks, nature sanctuaries, and other open spaces in Brookline.

All meetings will be held in a hybrid format. Those who cannot attend in person are encouraged to join via Zoom by following the registration links on the Open Space Plan webpage.

The meetings will include a brief introduction and informational session on the existing Open Space Plan, published in 2018, including what it is, how it is utilized, and why it needs to be updated. An open discussion will follow so that the Open Space Plan Committee may hear the community’s desires, concerns, and ideas as it pertains to the 2025 update.

Residents are also encouraged to fill out the 2025 Open Space Plan survey, which can be found here.
