Community Garden Committees seeks New Fairfield property to be returned to natural state

The Community Garden Committee in New Fairfield has asked the Board of Selectmen to leave an unmowed area near the Community Garden as a meadow.  That would help attract pollinators and restore some of the wetlands on that piece located near the Senior Center.  First Selectman Pat Del Monaco noted that there is a need for some open space for the area, but wants to keep it clear by the 9/11 Memorial.  Del Monaco added that people also walk their dogs along the perimeter of the property.  She intends to have the area currently maintained for that purpose to be mowed.  The wood chips are no longer there, but a path has been established.  She suggested a pie shaped piece bordered by water, coming out to the middle of the lot.
