Conservation easement on the table in Nashua
The Nature of Things school is planning to buy a large, adjacent parcel of property at 9 Groton Road, which would be used for educational purposes. The property’s price — $675,000 — could be cut in half if city officials approve a proposed acquisition of a 10-acre conservation easement on the site.
The Gleeson’s have a target closing date of the end of July, however there is an option to extend the closing until Aug. 31, 2014, if necessary. According to city’s assessment records posted online, the property at 9 Groton Road is assessed at $382,700. A four bedroom, 3,000-square-foot home that was constructed in 1983 sits on the 17-acre parcel being sought for purchase.
The Nature of Things school offers preschool through eighth-grade learning opportunities on a 22-acre farm site spanning from Nashua into Dunstable, Mass. About 19-acres of the school’s property is undeveloped.
The proposed resolution, being sponsored by aldermen Mike Soucy and Brian McCarthy, will have its first reading at tonight’s Board of Aldermen meeting starting at 7:30 at Nashua City Hall.
Two years ago, city officials authorized two separate easements, including a 3-acre conservation easement deed for a portion of property around the water tank off Concord Street, along with a separate, 3-acre recreational easement on the same parcel for an athletic field near the Pennichuck Middle School.
