Recreational Trails Preservation

This project, proposed by the Conservation Commission, asks for an appropriation of $10,000 to be allocated for the Preservation of Recreational Trails. This funding will be used for the preservation of trails and access to Municipal lands that have been identified in the Town's approved Open Space and Recreation Plan currently on file with the E.O.E.A. The appropriation, if approved, may only be used for this purpose.

The Community Preservation Act requires the Town to appropriate or set aside 10% of the funds received each fiscal year for each of the following areas: Open Space, Historic Resources, and Community Housing.   Once the Town has appropriated or reserved the mandatory minimums for these three purposes, it is allowed to appropriate from the remaining funds for the preservation of land for Recreational use.
