Your Input is Needed;
Holland Open Space & Recreation Committee

A public meeting for all Holland residents will be held on Saturday, October 18th from 10:00am - Noon at the Community Center located at 40 Brimfield Road. The Town of Holland is writing an Open Space and Recreation Plan and we are looking for input from residents of the town. The last plan was written in 2004. With a current plan Holland would be able to receive funding from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts to purchase land for trails, recreational areas and open space.

This meeting will help identify the needs of the community and input from all residents is sought to create a comprehensive plan that addresses the kinds of open space and recreation opportunities the people of Holland would like.

Residents are also invited to fill out an online survey; to do the survey, click here!

The survey asks questions regarding the kinds of recreation people participate in, the special “sights” of Holland and what kinds of family activities people are interested in such as enjoying the lake, taking a walk, playing baseball, hunting, etc... Take the survey to help create the plan. Paper copies are available at the town hall, library and community center.

Volunteers are also needed to help write the plan. Howie Fife and Jennifer Ohop, Holland Residents are spearheading this effort.

For more information, please call Howie at 413-245-2124 or email

Mr. Frei-
Please post this urgent message:

There has recently been a series of break ins in Sturbridge and Brimfield. In Brimfield chain saws were taken from a residence on 5 Bridges Road during the day. Also in Brimfield 5 chainsaws were taken from a locked shed on the Freeman Farm. Only the good ones were taken... And this theft likely occurred at night. Other area homes have also had items stolen. The thieves seem to target snow blowers generators and chain saws, however I heard of at least one person who had expensive jewelry stolen. Please if anyone has seen anything contact the police! Keep your eyes open and report any suspicious cars in your neighborhood. Secure your belongings.... Although they travel with bolt cutters.... So it is important to be diligent and keep your eyes open. This economy is tough enough. No one wants to have to replace large ticket items. Let's catch these thieves!
