Successful grant application

In September, the DSRA applied for $12 000 for a Communities Environment Program Grant through Brian Mitchell's office. The funds will be used to remove environmental weeds (Radiata pine and African box thorn) from between 223 and 227 Cambria Drive and the fire break from this easement to the Meredith River.
