Acton to Conserve Main Street Property

At their May 1, 2023, Town Meeting, Acton voters overwhelmingly approved the use of Community Preservation Act (CPA) funds to purchase a conservation restriction on 57 acres at the corner of Main and Brook Streets. The property is traversed by the historic Isaac Davis Trail and sits adjacent to the Bruce Freeman Rail Trail.

We are delighted with this outcome! SVT supports this conservation effort, and along with the Acton Conservation Trust, we had encouraged our Acton members to vote Yes.

The Town will soon purchase the CR from the Acton Water District, which recently agreed to buy the property. SVT will co-hold the CR.
