Please Join the League of Women Voters of Newton on Monday, February 22 from 7-8pm for a virtual roundtable discussion.

The discussion will focus on how to balance the competing interests regarding Crystal Lake – the preservation and sustainability of the Lake, and the use and enjoyment of the Lake by the general public.

The event will “kick off” with remarks by the Crystal Lake Conservancy on the environmental sustainability of the Lake.

Questions explored will include:

  • how do the rules and regulations regarding the use of the Lake for swimming, boating and fishing compliment the environmental concerns regarding the use of the Lake?
  • how do they compete with those environmental concerns?
  • do the current rules and regulations concerning the use of the Lake best meet the desires of the general public to use the Lake as a resource for recreation?

This event is open to all.
