Join Us for Dec. 20 Conservation Easement Signing and Celebration

panoDominic and Suellen Balestra will conserve 107 acres of fields and forest located on Stevens and Hardy Hill Roads in Lebanon by donating a conservation easement to UVLT.

The Balestra’s land is located in an area where there has been considerable residential development in the past 20 years (over 30 new homes). The City has identified the property as a priority for conservation because it contributes significantly to the rural character in this part of Lebanon. The property includes almost ½ mile of frontage on a scenic road and provides expansive views to Lebanon’s Signal Hill and beyond to Ascutney Mountain in Vermont.
