Carlisle Town Common Questionnaire

Carlisle is a beautiful town and its Town Common should reflect that beauty. The Board of Selectman in the fall of 2004 formed the Carlisle Town Common Committee to develop and propose a plan to make our historic common on its hillside below the Unitarian Church a more attractive part of the community. To date the committee has aerated, limed, and fertilized the lawn. The committee is now soliciting ideas for further improvement. Please take a few minutes to provide your input so that a plan may be designed that reflects the interests of the entire town.

Return the completed form by cutting it out and dropping it off at Ferns Country Store or mail it to the committee secretary, Jenifer Bush, 68 Church Street, Carlisle.
