The Dover Open Space Committee is in process of updating Dover’s Open Space & Recreation Plan (OSRP). This update is needed to qualify Dover for State reimbursement programs for the acquisition and protection of important open space.

Faced with continuing significant development pressure, open space planning will help us to preserve important green spaces while also allowing development to occur that maintains the character of the town. The OSRP will help the Town in making important future decisions on open space and recreation opportunities.

The results will be presented at an open meeting in April or May and will also be available on the Town website.

If you have any questions or would like additional information, please do not hesitate to contact us (amoot@doverma.org).

PastedGraphic-3Dover’s Annual Cleanup

The Dover Recycling Committee is planning its annual Clean Up for the whole month of April this year! We are promoting street and property clean-up during the entire month culminating in a final special event day on April 27. Our goal is to achieve cleanup of 100% of Dover’s streets. This year we will not be separating recyclables (bottles and cans) from trash as recycling centers will not accept them due to their bad condition. As in the past, bags will be supplied and street safety signs will be provided.

Please go to https://bit.ly/2EdyWZF to sign up and reserve your spot! Details on bag supplies, caution signs, disposal, etc. will be provided in March. Should you have any questions, please email us at doverrecycling@gmail.com.

We thank you in advance for your participation in this important community event! This event is supported by Dover’s Parks & Recreation Department, Conservation Commission, and Open Space Committee, the Dover Land Conservation Trust and the Dover-Sherborn High School Down to Earth Club.
