Brookmead Conservation Area

As part of its plan to address financial challenges facing the Vermont State College System, Vermont Technical College is selling surplus real estate including 6 acres in Norwich adjacent to UVLT’s Brookmead Conservation Area. The Herald interviewed VTC President Pat Moulton about the school’s plan.

Some community members have been concerned that the sale might affect the conservation status of the Brookmead Conservation Area or that the 350 acres that make up Brookmead Conservation Area are for sale. Rest assured, this land is not at risk to sale, development, or subdivision.

Although UVLT had once expected to own the 6 acres, the Vermont Technical College was not able to complete the sale several years ago and the matter was resolved. Realtor Cam Brown has listed the property for Vermont Technical College. Questions about allowable uses under local and state ordinances can be directed to Cam Brown.

UVLT is not involved with the sale of the 6-acre property or its future use. Our Brookmead Conservation Area is open for winter recreational enjoyment and we are looking forward to another great season with the food pantry garden. Please contact contactus@uvlt.org with questions about our trails or to sign up to volunteer at the garden.
