Town Announces Intent Sell Fiddle Park Lands

Shelburne | by Jill Young  
114.5 acres of land that includes Fiddle Park in Shelburne has been declared as surplus.

The Town of Shelburne is looking to sell the Fiddle Park Lands.

At last night's council meeting the 114.5 acres of land was declared as surplus, and the town would sell it to a developer for $7 million dollars for a residential subdivision.

There would be about 83.5 acres of natural woodlot there that would be rededicated back to the Town of Shelburne to remain in its natural state for community use.

Few other details have been released at this time, but council will make further decisions on the proposed sale at their June 4th meeting.

Those with written comments can submit them to the clerk Jennifer Willoughby, until 2 pm on June 1st at [email protected]

The lands are used for the Pickin' in the Park music festival annually, and a brand new pole barn was recently installed there thanks to funds from the festival.
