Many have stepped up in support of the purchase of a conservation easement for the Keiser family property. The Bulletin is confident this purchase will be a positive addition to the town of Wilton and stands with those in favor.
Conservation of open space in an area of Fairfield County where land is sold at a premium is a very important initiative for any town to take. Wilton is 27 square miles, or about 17,280 acres. Of those, there are 1,657 acres of protected open land — less than 10%. These areas offer year-round passive recreation opportunities for those who wish to walk, run or ride a bike where they don’t have to dodge traffic on windy or busy roads.
