ConsCom administrator resigns

Katrina Proctor, who has served as administrator for the Carlisle Conservation Commission for the past four and a half years, has submitted her resignation, effective the end of April. She and her husband are embarking on a business venture in her hometown in Lunenburg, and Proctor said that the time was right for leaving.

Proctor's energies will soon be devoted to renovating a 1930s house and grounds to be operated as a curiosity shop and tea room, with surrounding gardens in which patrons can stroll. In so doing, Proctor will be restoring the house to its historic use. Proctor even intends to return to the original name of the business, "The Buttercup." She and her husband are aiming for a September opening.

Telling a story which will sound familiar to Carlisleans, Proctor said that Lunenburg lacks a central social meeting place and a place for townspeople to gather for refreshments. Proctor's planned shop is located in the center of town not far from the school. Future construction of a barn for entertainment use is also being planned.

Proctor is also hoping the change will allow her to spend more time with her husband and her three children aged 14, 12 and 11.
