Preserving Open Space

July 25, 2019

We approved the conveyance and easement of a portion of a parcel of land with an area of approximately 18.2 acres located on Cedar Mountain to the town of Newington to ensure that the land only be used for open space and passive recreation.

Cedar Mountain is best known for its hiking trail located on Russell Road, just behind the Connecticut Humane Society. Following the mountain’s hiking trail will lead to the “outlook,” which offers scenic views stretching miles away from well-known mountain.
