What is the West Greenwich Land Trust?
In 1997 the West Greenwich Town Council established this trust to acquire and preserve open space in our town. Lands described as farm land, open spaces, historical places, fresh water wetlands, ground water recharge areas, well fields, wildlife habitats, bicycle and hiking paths and land for future public recreational use are among those noted in the enabling ordinance.

What is the Land Trust's mission?
The purpose of the West Greenwich Land Trust is to preserve open space and maintain existing agricultural, wildlife, recreational, scenic, and historical land uses which represent the natural heritage of the Town, through voluntary means emphasizing private ownership.

What do the Land Trustees do?
Your Land Trustees, appointed by the Town Council, are authorized to:

  • Receive gifts and donations of land.
  • Accept and hold development rights in trust returning tax benefits to land owners.
  • Purchase ecologically sensitive lands when necessary.
  • Provide land stewardship in perpetuity.
  • Promote citizen participation in protecting our rural heritage.
