(Special Town Meeting 2007 Article 12E)
Town Meeting appropriated funding for the purchase of approximately five acres of naturally vegetated land off Franklin Street identified on Assessors’ Plan 1021 as Lots 4 and 4A. The parcels abut and include part of the marsh which feeds Sunset Lake. The purchase was made in order to retain open space, conserve the marshland and protect the water quality of Sunset Lake. And, the parcels are subject to a Conservation Restriction held in perpetuity by The Wildlands Trust of Southeastern Massachusetts.
