Recommendations & Financing Options


Recommendations leading to permanent open space protection are given in four sections: General, Use of the Conservation Fund, Conservation/Recreation Areas, and In-town Areas. The recommendations, which are not exhaustive, should be reviewed and augmented from time to time in the context of the stated goals of the plan and the protection purposes defined for each area.

Open Space Protection & Financing Options

Application of public and private easements, outright gifts or donations, and purchase may establish open space protection. Other options for implementing the recommendations, and methods of financing costs, are also detailed.
