RRCT trails at the Intervale Preserve
GNGLL Intervale Fields Update
July 16, 2021
GNGLL is pleased to announce that our Phase 1 fundraising campaign in conjunction with RRCT is now complete. RRCT has acquired 174.3 acres to greatly expand the Intervale Preserve and GNGLL now owns 14.7 acres for potential ballfields.
The completion of the land acquisition now guarantees by deed that all usage of the combined parcels will be for recreational use in perpetuity. This is great news!
RRCT will immediately embark on their Phase 2 fundraising campaign to complete funding for trails and management of their parcel. GNGLL will pivot to attempting to restore our Bennet Road property for ballfields. Our combined efforts throughout the Fall 2021 will hopefully lead to the restoration of the spent gravel pit at Bennett Road into usable acreage for the community. Rejuvenating this land will make all aspects of this project restorative to the community while preserving the Intervale. In the event that our efforts to restore Bennett are not fruitful, the committee may decide to resume ballfield plans on the Intervale property.
Embarking on this path will require sustained effort from the entire community. Our new ballfields committee will begin meeting Monday evenings in August and will meet bi-weekly throughout the next year to ensure we can achieve this goal. We welcome up to 8 members of the community to join our committee to achieve these goals.
