A portion of the northern meadow, which will be included in the Town Forest/Community land property, has suitable soils for an in‐ground leach field near the Village Center should the community decide to pursue in the future.
The Town has recognized for some time that there are few options available for maintenance of current Town Center wastewater systems and for future growth in the Town Center and Village districts due to poor soils in the area. Studies conducted have found significant soil capacity on the Jackson Farm. A small portion of the proposed Forest and Community lands (about5‐ 6 acres) contains these soils. The Town is looking into the feasibility, possible cost, and possible funding opportunities that exist today, but there is no immediate plan to install such a system. However, if the land were to be sold privately for development, the community would not have such a promising option for future growth.
