Charlestown considers the acquisition for open space of 78 acres along Rt. 1

A Public Hearing has been scheduled for 7:00 pm, Thursday, August 22, at the Charlestown Elementary School to discuss the proposal to purchase 78 acres of land along Rt 1. This is the same land where two 410 foot wind turbines are proposed.

To help residents learn more about the proposal we have taken information from different public sources and posted that at our website.

We have posted questions and answers about habitat protection, greenway linkages, resource protection, multi-community impact, local and state wide planning consistency, financial impact, long term protection, and other topics. Please visit to read the full discussion.

If you have questions that we haven’t posed or answered, please use the comment form on that page at our website, or send us an email at

We will continue to update the questions and answers until the date of the public hearing.
