    Petition to help save landlocked forest

    If you ride LLF you might have seen the savelexington signs up. The reason for this is there is a plan to develop some of the LLF acreage with 40 houses or more. I don't know about you, but I do not like that idea one tiny bit. If you're a NEMBA member you may have already gotten an email about this but if you aren't or haven't read it.......

    Please sign the petition to stop the development. Its not a done deal yet. You can help.

    This was the NEMBA alert:



    ACTION ALERT – Please Help Mitigate Development Plans that Impact the Landlocked Forest

    Attend the Lexington Plannng Board Meeting, June 15th







    A developer has recently signed a Purchase & Sale agreement for 13 acres of private land off of Grove Street in Lexington that includes not only a trailhead on Grove Street but also one of the loop trails that goes through an old stand of pines. Preliminary plans are to maximize the number of residential units, upwards of 40, that can be built on the property.



    The sale and the building plans are not final, and a group of Lexington residents and neighbors have organized a group called “Save Lexington” to try to prevent the development so that the Town of Lexington may purchase the property. The property has a high conservation value since it abut Lexington Conservation Land as well as Burlington’s Landlocked Forest.



    The group asks anyone who enjoys the Landlocked Forest and the open space in Lexington and Bedford to come and show support at the next meeting of the Lexington Planning Board. You don’t need to be a Lexington resident, so we hope that you can attend. They want to pack the room.



    The meeting is on Wednesday, June 15, at 7 pm, in the Town Office Building, Selectmen's Meeting Room, at 1625 Mass Ave in Lexington. At this early point, the group wishes to show the developer and current landowner how many people prefer to preserve the lot as open space. NEMBA will have one person speak specifically to our community's concerns regarding the trails. The rest of us just need to be there to respectfully show our support.



    Numbers matter, so we hope that you will be able to attend. Here are some links to more information and ways that you can help:

    Is the trail in question called "monument corner to Mckeever base" on Strava? Beautiful little area.
    There are many reasons to oppose this development, but just to be clear, it abuts LLF and is on private land. Not part of LLF.
