The Wendell Open Space Committee seeks new members.  In addition to implementing the Open Space action plan, the Open Space Committee has been involved in exciting past projects, including the purchase of Fiske Pond and development of a management plan for that land, establishment of the Town Forests, stewardship of town conservation parcels, educational programming, sponsoring Earth Day celebrations, and advising town committees on open space issues, and taking the occasional hike on town-owned open space land.  We welcome your energy and new ideas!  If you have an interest in protecting land for the future use and enjoyment of the community, please contact Ray (978-544-8270) for further info.   We currently meet the first Thursday of the month at 4 pm at the Town Offices, though meeting time may be flexible.


Emergency Preparedness in Wendell

E-mail Print

Recent prolonged power outages in town triggered the response of several town emergency systems, but also gave rise to some questions about our emergency plans. Here is an update on what town services are available in an emergency.

Thanks to the efforts of many of the town’s first responders, we now have an Emergency Operations Center, located in an office between the Fire Department and the Highway Department. This Center, which can maintain radio contact with Shelburne Falls Emergency Dispatch as well as the Wendell Fire and Police Departments, was staffed and operational during the first days of the power outage. Fire Chief Everett Ricketts was on duty full time, coordinating communication and town emergency servies. Many town residents without water came to the EOC where they could fill water containers.


The Website Committee Wants You!

Can you wrestle a computer mouse with one hand tied behind your back? Do you know where your shift keys are? Can you type with at least 2 fingers? If you can do this and are not intimidated by blinking cursors or colorful graphics, the Wendell Website Committee Wants You!


Volunteers Needed!

There are several openings on Town Boards and Committees, including the Cemetery Commission, Recreation Committee, Open Space Committee and the Wendell Cultural Council. Please contact the Selectboard if you are interested in serving.
