New protections for Upton conservation land

UPTON

Town-owned conservation land like Peppercorn Hill and the Warren Brook woods will be protected under new regulations being finalized by the Conservation Commission.

"We are not proposing anything earthshaking," said commission member Chris Scott. "Most of it is common sense stuff that people would hopefully do anyway."

The regulations are based on a survey of similar policies in nearby towns and cover everything from campfires to litter and even ATV use. Scott expects the commission to approve the new guidelines and present them to Selectmen sometime in October.
