The Land Trust supports the conservation and permanent protection of the special places that contribute to the overall quality of life for current and future residents and ensure opportunities exist for connecting people to the farmlands, woodlands, open fields and waterways that enhance the community. The EGMLT advises the Town Council on the acquisition of land, development rights, and/or conservation easements consistent with the Town’s Comprehensive Plan; assists landowners who are interested in protecting their property from future development by serving as a resource clearinghouse regarding appropriate strategies, methods, and funding source for such conservation; and assist the Town in promoting its open spaces, forests, and shoreline for public enjoyment and recreation and in promoting the value of its conserved farmland for agricultural use.
