An initial investment by Andover residents will open the door to matching funds from public agencies, nonprofit organizations and corporate sponsors. Preservation can be accomplished in a variety of ways, including the purchase of property, dedication of conservation easements, purchase or transfer of development rights and park dedication. By utilizing a combination of funding sources and methods, the amount of land that can be protected will be multiplied.
