MOULTONBOROUGH — On November 8, the Moultonborough Conservation Commission sponsored a public property walk and forum, to introduce the community to the proposed site of Lee's Pond Preserve. It is a 37 acre undeveloped property for sale with high conservation value. In addition to 3800 feet of frontage along the Red Hill River and Lee's Pond, it is a wildlife corridor and habitat.
The surrounding area has an interesting history, having been a vibrant community from the late 1700s through mid-1800s. Twenty-two people took the mile long walk around the perimeter of the property and thirty attended the public forum. After presentations by a Conservation Commission member, town administrator and landscape architect, an open discussion explored topics such as how to better protect the land, whether to allow low-impact access and alternate ways to fund it.
The Conservation Commission met the following Monday, November 10, to evaluate public interest. After considering the turnout and comments, the Commission voted to move into the next phase of the project. After an appraisal and purchase and sale agreement are complete, fund raising should begin in early 2015. Those looking for more information should visit the project's Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/leespondpreserve or contact any member of the Moultonborough Conservation Commission.
