Main Road Vista Progress March 2019

Our Main Road Vista project goal of $248,000 is getting close.  We have now raised $151,175. This includes:

$50,000 has been agreed upon from Tiverton Open Space and Land Preservation Commission
$40,000 matching challenge from an anonymous private foundation
$40,000 from donors and TLT members from the challenge
$21,175 from donors and TLT members after the challenge

That leaves $96,825 remaining. TLT is very grateful to those who have given to this project. TLT has applied for an agricultural grant from the state of RI and we are hopeful that some funding will be received.  But there will be a shortfall.  This is an opportunity for our community to save Tiverton’s 18th century landscape by supporting the quest to preserve Tiverton’s beauty and historical significance. Please help.  Donate here to help save the Main Road Vista!  Click here for more information

Tiverton Land Trust launches fundraising for Main Road Vista Project

TLT has signed agreements to protect two highly visible properties along Main Road, just north of Pond Bridge Road. Without a conservation easement, 15 more acres of open fields and landscapes would be subdivided for new house lots. Time is short. Please help! We have only 90 days to raise $248,000 for both conservation easements. Your gifts will be matched dollar for dollar up to $40,000 through a challenge grant from an anonymous foundation. Click here for more information.
