The Londonderry Open Space Task Force recently completed a thorough evaluation of Londonderry’s natural resources and the benefits and value they provide to the town. Some of these lands are owned by residents and are considered part of the “Green Infrastructures.”
Just as there infrastructures that support the municipal services, schools, roads, and sewer and water systems, there is also Green Infrastructure that supports the water quality and quantity, opportunity for outdoor recreation, and the rural look and feel of town.
The town has an interest in keeping these residential open space lands, so that they continue to be a part of the Green Infrastructure. There are three primary ways to accomplish this:
- Residents can continue to manage the land as open space; the town is ready to assist in any way it can.
- Residents can donate or sell a conservation easement to the town or another conservation organization or agency that places a legal protection on the land and prevents a future owner from developing it.
- Residents can donate or sell their land to the town or another conservation organization or agency that will maintain the land as open space; residents can even retain the right to use the property for the rest of their life.
Those interested in learning more about why their land has been be included in the town’s Green Infrastructure and how to maintain it are encouraged to attend a meeting tonight. Your Role in Londonderry’s Green Infrastructure will be held at the Moose Hill Chambers in the Town Hall at 7 PM tonight, June 25, 2012.
