To the editor:
On the morning of Saturday, Oct. 5, members of the Rockport Conservation Commission and area neighbors cut back trails and cleared litter from the conservation land located at the top of Pigeon Hill Street and near Johnson Road.
The Rockport DPW had recently cleared old materials and made a small parking area in front of the work shed at the property entrance. The land is 5.8 acres and was previously owned by the family of Stephen Johnson. It was purchased by the Commission with Community Preservation Act funds.
The trails are open to the public for walking. They pass between small quarries and across granite grout piles.
The parcels that surround this site are privately owned and require permission to enter them. Thank you to all who helped with the improvements to this site.
Chairman, Rockport Conservation Commission
