The Town of Barre has proposed to create a community forest out of land mostly owned by Rock of Ages. The 300+ acres of land runs from Upper Websterville to Upper Graniteville, and could potentially include a trail by the Millstone Trails Association.
The Trust for Public Land, a national land conservation organization, is leading the real estate negotiations and financing for the project by signing letters of intent with Rock of Ages regarding six separate parcels totaling 340 acres.
The Barre Town Select Board urge the community members to vote this coming November on the development of a town forest. Although it would cost the town an estimated $8,000 in municipal taxes on an annual basis, it would protect local water supplies and open up the recreation for Barre Town.
