LONDONDERRY — A longtime conservation supporter may get a special tribute in a favorite place.
The Londonderry Conservation Commission is working on a project to place a memorial bench in the town's Musquash Conservation Area to honor Mike Considine and all his support of the town's valued lands and protected spaces.
Considine died in July and had lived in Londonderry 34 years before moving to Manchester. He had been part of the conservation commission and strongly advocated for not only the protection of Musquash, but other valued properties in town.
At a recent meeting, conservation members said it would be nice to place the granite bench in a landing area of the Musquash that is used a lot and where it would be seen and enjoyed.
The idea came from a group of Considine's friends, who approached the town with a plan for some sort of tribute in the Musquash. The friends would split the cost.
Conservation members said Considine was instrumental in building and naming trails in the Musquash and having a tribute there would be a nice way to remember him.
