Conservation easement will protect seven acres of Salem land
Earlier this month, the Conservation Commission recommended the approval of the easement on the property of Robert Banks at 115 Bluff St.
There is a house on the property, and the house and surrounding yard will not be subject to the easement. Moldoff said this is being done in case Banks or a future owner wishes to add a pool, deck, or shed onto the property.
Selectman Stephen Campbell asked Moldoff if the property connects to any other conservation land in town.
“Nothing else the town owns is in the immediate vicinity,” said Moldoff. He said there is conservation property further up Bluff Street and that the town forest is nearby, but that there is no land that abuts Banks’ property.
While there is some wetland on the property, Moldoff said a good chunk of the acreage is developable upland.
