Branch Pond Association, Inc. – Name, Location, and Purpose
This organization shall be known as the Branch Pond Association, Inc., a non-profit, public benefit corporation chartered by the State of Maine. The principal office of the Corporation shall be located at 3 Oakley Estates, South Hadley, Massachusetts, 01075.
The primary purpose of the Branch Pond Association is to serve the public good by working with all stakeholders of Branch Pond and it’s immediately connected watershed to protect, preserve and promote the Pond’s unique ecology, biodiversity and tranquil character for the enjoyment of future generations, while remaining mindful of the Pond’s unique historical and cultural significance to the region as a whole. With this mandate, the Branch Pond Association views other organizations, such as conservation land trusts and other environmentally-minded public organizations, both governmental and private, as important partners, and will seek to work with them whenever the occasion merits. In addition to working directly with State and local agencies and/or private entities in setting water levels and minimum flows, the Branch Pond Association, Inc., strives to maintain the pond’s integrity that also includes shoreline protection, water quality, habitat, recreation, fishery and wildlife resource protection.
A secondary mission is the maintenance of private ways which allow recreational access to the Pond, so that it may be enjoyed by all members of the public. Particular attention will be paid to the maintenance of Dinsmore Lane in China, as it currently provides Pond access for the greatest number of shorefront landowners.
