Lower Village land on select board agenda

At the Board of Selectman meeting on Monday night, July 1, the Royal River Conservation Trust (RRCT) and the Gray-New Gloucester Little League (GNGLL) will be making a presentation on an option to acquire 180 acres of land connecting the Lower Village to the League fields on Rt. 231, including the ballfields and the rich habitat in the Intervale. They plan to raise private funds and grants from foundations, and do not plan to use either municipal financial resources or municipal land ownership, to complete the project. They will be reaching out to the select board and the community to seek input on ways to shape the project plans in the interest of the community.
