Janet Lynn for Zoning Board of Appeals  

How does one find a new member for the Salisbury Zoning Board of Appeals? Who will be the correct fit? It is a challenging job. Members on this committee must be “up to date” on the various restrictions in a given area in town.

Salisbury is located in a delicate environmental thoroughfare, where: man, animals, mountains, waterfalls, and meadows come together, and in which we, humans, keep increasing our footsteps. 

We do have a person in town who will be able to handle most challenges. Janet Lynn. She was born in Sharon Hospital, attended Salisbury Central School and Housatonic Valley Regional High School. After graduating she entered the Women’s Army Corps for three years, spending the last two years in Portier, France. Upon discharge Janet has lived in the Salisbury area, where she served our town as 1: Registrar of Voters; 2: the affordable Housing Committee, and 3: the Zoning Board of Appeals.

Now Janet would like to serve again on the Zoning Board of Appeals for another term. Remember Janet Lynn’s name, when you are going to vote this fall. You will not be disappointed.

Supporting conservation of Salmon Kill Valley 

We are writing to encourage everyone who values Salisbury’s rural character as well as protecting our town’s important open spaces and natural resources to make a contribution to the Community Campaign for the Salmon Kill Valley.

As reported by this newspaper on September 7, the Salisbury Association Land Trust is in the process of acquiring 14 pristine acres in the Valley, a landscape that is loved by everyone who drives, bikes, runs or walks through it. 

The Salmon Kill, once the source of power for the Lime Rock furnace, the Barnum and Richardson Foundry, a paper making factory, and several mills, bisects this wonderous property.

To fund the purchase and support our Land Trust’s important conservation work, lead donors will match every individual gift from the community up to $80,000.

Please show your enthusiasm for our Land Trust and make your personal impact on the Valley with a matching contribution by mail or online: www.salisburyassociation.org/ways-to-support/donate
