In addition Dr. Silbert said he would
like to give the Recreation and Park Department and Mr. Maynard an award on behalf of the Water-
shed Partnership for the best organic town green in Connecticut. No pesticides have been applied to
the Guilford Green for three years.
Mr. Schipani asked what the next step would be. Dr. Silbert replied that he would like the Commission’s support when he presented the natural turf proposal to
DPW and the Board of Selectmen. Mr. Schipani felt the Commission would like to hear both sides of
the story before making a decision, especially as he had heard the program was not so successful in
Cheshire. Dr. Silbert replied that the main football field in Cheshire was overused and so it was not
possible to keep it in good condition.
