History and trees need help in Weston

Posted by Ralph Ranalli July 17, 2007 11:35 AM


Weston's Board of Selectmen is seeking volunteers to fill two vacancies on town boards.

The Weston Historical Commission, which works to preserve historic architecture and landscape in town, needs someone to fill the seat left by Robert Fronk. The time commitment includes meetings every three weeks and additional hours spent on site walks, project work, and coordination with other town boards. Officials are especially encouraging residents with a background in architectural history and preservation to apply.

Selectmen are also looking for someone to fill an added slot on the town Tree Advisory Group, which oversees tree plantings and tree education programs. If possible, applicants should have experience in landscape design and maintenance, officials said.

Officials are urging anyone interested in either position to send a letter of interest with background information to the Town of Weston, Board of Selectmen, P.O. Box 378, Weston, MA 02493. Materials can also be faxed to Selectmen at 781-891-3697 or e-mailed to townmgroffice@westonmass.org.

All applications are due August 10.
