The Brown Farm is now known as the "Heritage Community Park and Natural Area". But aside from the name, little had been decided about the future of the property... until last night.

Last night, town council endorsed a plan that takes both sides into account. It calls for preserving most of the acreage-- while setting aside 30 acres for other use.
