Vote to Protect and Preserve Brown’s Woods at Special Town Meeting in October

Town Meeting has been moved to Sunday, October 18th at 10:00am. Also, note that this was referred to as Article 8 in the LCT Newsletter and on lawn signs around town but it looks like the warrant article numbers have changed and it may be Article 9 now.

The Town of Littleton has an opportunity to add the lovely Brown’s Woods to its local conservation lands and also create public trails for passive recreation. The protection of Brown’s Woods will add a critical link in a corridor of conservation land that includes Prouty Woods, Long Lake, and the Littleton Town Forest.

At Special Town Meeting on October 18, residents will be asked to vote to commit Community Preservation Funds toward the purchase of these 25 acres. The Commonwealth of Massachusetts has also awarded a grant to the town that will provide well over half the funding required for the acquisition.

LCT and SVT are also raising additional funds via donations for the purchase and ongoing costs of the Conservation Restriction on the land.
