DEVENS — The Devens Enterprise Commission signed a conservation restriction for the Shepley’s Hill conservation area.
Among the actions prohibited from happening at the conservation land approved by DEC include “new construction, clear cutting, removing or otherwise destroying trees, grasses or other vegetation; activities detrimental to drainage, flood control, water conservation, water quality, erosion control, soil conservation, or archaeological conservation; parking and storage of vehicles (except where already in place); and any other use that would negatively affect the natural resources being protected.”
The 44.6-acre parcel of underdeveloped land, which is adjacent to the Shepley’s Hill Landfill site and beside Parker Charter School and Shriver Job Corps, was listed in the 2008 to 2013 Devens Open Space and Recreation Plan.
