Former Nashua dairy farm to be converted into 37 home sites
The 30-acre parcel at 4 Searles Road is the last undeveloped piece of property in southwest Nashua. In addition to the construction of nearly 40 houses, three plots of open-space totaling about 10 acres will be preserved as conservation land as part of the project.
Alderman Daniel Moriarty, Ward 9, compared the loss of the farmland in southwest Nashua to the loss of Parcel F in the city's north end, a 33-acre parcel that is being converted into an 85-unit elderly housing complex known as Hayden Green.
Acknowledging that the land is important, Petropoulos told city planners that the proposal includes significant protection of 10 acres. A different development proposal in the future, he said, could include all of the property.
The site is wooded, with the exception of two fields. In addition to the three parcels of open space being planned, Petropoulos said the applicant, the city and the conservation commission reached a mitigation agreement.
"I don't want to see it ruined," Going said of the dirt and gravel path. "Don't pave it."
According to Petropoulos, paving the bike path was recommended as a 25-year solution because paving would erode much slower than stone dust. He said that no vehicles will be traveling on the paved rail trail, so there should be no runoff into the nearby waterways.
The project, which abuts the existing Meadowview Estates condominium development, was approved by the planning board with several stipulations, including a mandate that the paved rail trail must be tilted away from Salmon Brook to avoid potential runoff.
