Abington

Open Space Plan hearing

Continue reading below

Listed as priorities in a draft of Abington’s 2013 open space and recreation plan are maintaining the Wilson Memorial Bridge and Arch in Island Grove and acquiring a portion of the Pohorecky Farm, partially within the Ames Nowell State Park. The Conservation Commission invites the public to comment on the plan Tuesday at 7 p.m. in the town offices building. Laying out bicycle routes and developing a plan for connecting trails though Diane Circle to nature trails within the Beaver Brook Reservation and local conservation lands are also mentioned as goals, as is providing plots of land for community gardens. “The amount and distribution of open space in a community does much to shape its character,” reads the plan in part. James R. Watson, a comprehensive planner with the Old Colony Planning Council, which helped prepare the report, said the seven-year plans are required by the state for some reimbursements. Several of the proposals were listed in the 2006 plan but never acted on.
