STURBRIDGE — Following a public hearing at the May 7 Board of Selectmen meeting, the board unanimously approved a forest cutting plan and logging permit for a project to take place on a Ladd Road property owned by Ann Jablonski.

Craig Masterman, of Yankee Woodlands, informed the board about the details of the project, which will be completed by Greg Hurly Firewood, of Douglas. The DPW director requests that a $5,000 road maintenance bond be submitted prior to any trucking activities and that upgrades be made to the access point to minimize road damage.

The Conservation Commission has no issues with the project, nor does the nearest resident to the property, David Barnicle, who happens to be the Chairman of the Conservation Commission. Barnicle stated that he has reviewed the submitted plan and is "150 percent" supportive of the proposed work.
