What makes the Town of Sudbury unique and special? What are the special places and spaces that define the character of the community?
To begin answering these questions Town of Sudbury residents, Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation and Freedoms Way Heritage Association have recently completed the Sudbury Heritage Landscapes Reconnaissance Report. This report contains a description of the landscapes identified by Sudbury residents as being significant for their contribution to the character of the town. These are the Heritage Landscapes that reflect the relationship between human culture and history, and the natural ecology that influenced land use and development of an area. The Heritage Landscape Inventory Report and map of the Heritage Landscape Inventory Program: Open Space and Historical Resources can be viewed on line. A hardcopy can be viewed at the Goodnow Library Reference desk.
To promote awareness of these places, the Sudbury Planning and Community Development Department and the Conservation Commission are holding a photo contest of these identified landscapes and other landscapes in town that contribute to the character of the community.
Do you have a favorite view? Know of a defining structure, roadway, etc. that is not on the list? Photos do not have to be only those places identified in this report. We want you to identify what you feel is special about the town.
