Cedar Street Land Acquisition
The funds allowed the purchase of a 8.45-acre parcel of land at the intersection of Cedar Street and Clapp Road; this property is near the South Swamp
and contains wetlands. Its purchase assured its continuance as open space into the future and helped to protect the Town's open space and water
resources. The purchase price set for the property was below the appraised value by $2,000.
This project fully meets the requirements of the Town’s CPC goals for open space by enhancing the quality and variety of passive and active recreational
opportunities for Town residents, while protecting environmentally sensitive, historic and culturally significant properties.
