  • Utilizing an agreed-upon set of criteria to ascertain whether the property is desirable for open space;
  • Alerting the Board of Selectmen when a property meets these criteria;
  • Investigating, identifying, and, when possible, securing additional methods of funding land acquisition in Sherman;
  • Identifying preferred means of holding property in open space
