Eastford has its own open space fund, and there are also state and federal grant funds available for protecting open space. If you love your land and would like to see some or all of it protected from development for future generations, we would like to hear from you.
Good jobs, a strong economy and a stable mill rate are critical to Eastford's future. So are a clean environment and our small town, rural character. If we all pitch in - working and planning together - we can ensure that generations to come will also enjoy these assets.
The Commission consists of nine members and in the web pages on Conservation & Historic Preservation, you can review our mission statement. In addition you can review or download Natural Resource Maps including Agricultural Soils, Ground and Surface Water Resources and several others. Additionally, links to local and state organizations supporting open space and other conservation initiatives can be found.
Want to Help?
The CHPC maintains a comprehensive natural and historic resource inventory of Eastford, including important wildlife habitats and corridors, surface & groundwater resources, historic and archeological resources (see Maps & Resources page) and more. We seek to continually update and improve this information. If YOU know of a special place in Eastford that should not be overlooked as our town grows, we would like to hear from you.
For more information about the Commission, please contact your Selectman or attend one of our meetings, which are usually held at the Eastford Town Office Building, the first Tuesday of each month, at 7 p.m. You can also write to us at ECHPC, Town Office Building, 16 Westford Road, Eastford, CT 06242. Your ideas, concerns and questions are welcome.
