172 Sterling Street Green Space Project
To: The Honorable Board of Selectmen,
This petition from residents of the Town of Clinton to the Board of Selectmen requests that the approximate 8 acres of town owned property located at 172 Sterling Street be transferred to the Parks and Recreation Department for the purpose of developing open space and quality recreational areas. The development of this property for recreation purposes would provide much needed open space and recreational land to an area that currently does not have any parks. It will also enhance the aesthetics of our town for visitors entering Clinton from Sterling on Route 62.
Unlike any other property in town, this one provides enough space to meet multiple recreational needs. The general public’s input will be solicited to determine which specific amenities will be established within this proposed park. As with any initiative of this size, every effort will be made to acquire grants to offset funding requirements.
The undersigned petitioners request that the Board of Selectmen transfer the vacant property located at 172 Sterling Street to the Parks and Recreation Department for the purpose of exploring and developing open space within the Town of Clinton.
