Committee supports large conservation easement in Nashua
The easement, at a cost of $337,500, would be funded through an existing conservation fund.
The Nature of Things school is planning to purchase the large, adjacent parcel of property at 9 Groton Road, which would be used for educational purposes. The total price of the 17.3-acre property — $675,000 — could be cut in half if the Board of Aldermen approves the proposed acquisition of a 10.5-acre conservation easement on the site.
The private, environmental-science school intends to use about 6 acres of the land for educational purposes, according to Denis Gleeson, who owns the school with his wife, Deborah Gleeson. They plan to farm the property and expand the school facility, he said.
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, and was the state’s first LEED platinum commercial building in New Hampshire.
The full Board of Aldermen will now consider the proposed easement acquisition being recommended by the committee.
