Opening up the open space

cartoon 9.20 rsSouthborough – Residents in the upscale Barn Hollow development may have felt they were enhancing their neighborhood by trimming back perimeter vegetation, planting shrubs and setting up swing sets in an undeveloped portion circling the development.

However, according to a special permit negotiated with the Planning Board in the early stages of the development, a swath of land was to be turned over to the town as open space in order to create a wetlands barrier that would allow wildlife to roam and natural vegetation to flourish.

Although most neighbors have now complied, there are still instances of land being mowed or mulched. Officials will make a final determination as to which trees and plantings will be removed.
