Applications for Funding in 2012

Public Hearing requesting public comment on:

1.  From the Leverett Conservation Commission, Kestral Trust, and Rattlesnake Gutter Trust, an application for $170,000 of Community Preservation funds to provide part of local matching funds toward a total project cost of $434,250 to purchase a Conservation Restriction (CR) on 147 acres of Teawaddle Hill Farm at 72 Teawaddle Hill Road.  Leverett has been awarded a Massachusetts State LAND grant of $237,600 for this project which requires local matching funds.  Additional local fundraising of $25,000, which is currently underway, is also necessary to meet the required local match amount.  The CR will eliminate development rights on the farm in perpetuity for the purposes of protecting agricultural lands and natural resources, maintaining the property in its natural, scenic, and undeveloped condition, providing public access for recreation, and preventing uses or changes that interfere with these values.    

2.  From the North Leverett Cemetery Association, an application for $29,950 to restore the metal fence on the street side of the Moores Corner Cemetery located on Rattlesnake Gutter Road near the North Leverett Coop.

3.  From the Leverett Cemetery Association, an application for $28,000 to restore 90+ stones in the North Cemetery located on Montague Road about a mile north of Town Hall.
