There is a 13.5-acre parcel of private property right along the edge of our Greist Pond trail contiguous to the Ironwoods Preserve. Even though it’s privately owned, it’s never been developed. So when you hike around the lake today, you feel like you’re a million miles away from civilization.
But now that 13.5-acre property is on the market—and if the MLCT doesn’t buy it first, it will be purchased by a developer, and turned into a subdivision with 6 houses on a cul-de-sac. You can see the property outlined in yellow on the map below, along with the plan for the addition of 6 houses next to the pond.
