GREAT BARRINGTON— Another attempt to fully close Lake Mansfield Road to vehicular traffic failed.
The Lake Mansfield Improvement Task Force met on Oct. 1 and learned as a committee of the Selectboard’s decision to keep the road open to one-way traffic.
In an effort to coax the board to reconsider its decision, task force member Brandee Nelson came before the board at its Monday, Oct. 7 meeting with a presentation about how and why the committee had come to the decision it had.
The Selectboard formed the task force more than a decade ago in an effort to address stewardship, protection of the watershed, lake improvements, water quality — including runoff, buffer zone erosion and invasive weeds — use and accessibility, and public safety, said Nelson.
