Pepperell's Conservation Land and Open Spaces
Pepperell is blessed with a lovely rural character that the Town and the Conservation Commission are working to protect. Over the last several years, Town Meeting has set aside parcels for conservation and protected others by means of deed restrictions. However, it is an on-going challenge to balance the inevitable growth of the Town, the numerous new housing developments that are a function of Pepperell's appeal, and the desire to have Pepperell remain true to its current beauty.
