MEREDITH, N.H. (AP) - The Board of Selectmen in Meredith, Hampshire, has signed off on the Conservation Commission’s purchase of land in the Page Pond Forest.

The Citizen reports (https://bit.ly/2agstQu ) the project is expected to cost a little more than $1.12 million to preserve approximately 200 acres in the forest.

Conservation Commission Chair Mark Billings says the owner of the land approached Meredith officials in January to gauge their interest in conservation.

The town is working on a purchase and sales agreement to buy the property for $980,000. The final price will jump to around $1.12 million with various fees that will be applied.

Billings says town officials and the Trust for Public Land are optimistic that they will receive between $400,000 and $700,000 in grants for the project.
