Watch a video discussion of Article 10 by Select Board member Dean Charter

With your support, the Town of Acton can permanently conserve a 57-acre landscape that protects the local water supply and historic resources, while also granting public access.

This scenic property at the corner of Main Street and Brook Street is crossed by the historic Isaac Davis Trail and sits adjacent to the Bruce Freeman Rail Trail.

The Acton Water District has voted to acquire the land and plans to sell a conservation restriction (CR) on it to the Town. The CR will ensure the land is permanently conserved as open space.

Vote YES to Protect 549 Main Street

At Town Meeting on May 1, voters will be asked to approve the use of $1.03 million of Community Preservation Funds to purchase the CR and fund the annual monitoring of the property. A “Yes” vote will not increase your taxes, but it will permanently protect the property as open space.

Vote YES on Article 10 permanently protect 549 Main Street, corner of Brook and Main Streets – including the Isaac Davis Trail, meadows, woodland, and bedrock wells.

ACT is teaming with Acton Water District, Sudbury Valley Trustees and Open Space Committee to support Article 10 at Town Meeting.
