Town Closes on Whalerock Land

On Wednesday Afternoon, September 18, the town closed on the 75 acre property formerly known as Whalerock.

The Town Council had voted August 22 at a public hearing to purchase the property. The closing on the property had to wait until the minor subdivision process that created the lot the town would buy was completed.

The resulting 75 acre open space project will protect ground and surface water, ecologically significant habitat, and scenic qualities. The land purchase will expand other protected land and provide opportunities for passive recreation and public access.

A FAQ about this land and the open space acquisition is available at our website.
