Selectboard approves conservation of Cota Farm

The Selectboard unanimously approved the spending of $100,000 from the Agricultural and Natural Areas fund to support conserving 218 acres of the Cota farm on States Prison Hollow Road.  This spending is conditional on the project being approved by the Vermont Housing and Conservation Board and the financing of the remainder of the project budget.


The Selectboard agrees wholeheartedly with the assessment of the Agricultural and Natural Areas Committee that this farm contains some of the best agricultural resources in Monkton and that conserving it agrees with the mission statement of the ANAC committee and the Monkton Town Plan in maintaining an open and vibrant working landscape.

Thanks to the ANAC committee for their hard work and to the voters of Monkton who have repeatedly approved funding for this type of conservation.
