Meeting in Jericho over controversial land sale

Posted: Updated:
JERICHO, Vt. -

On Monday, the Underhill-Jericho Fire Department plans to explain its decision to sell 125 acres of land known as the "Gateway to Jericho".

Alice Rivers donated the land along Browns Trace Road back in 1986.

She died eleven months ago. Documents from meetings and the fire department outline her desire for the land to remain open.

But, that was not in the legal agreement.

Right now, most of it is zoned for rural residential, which means a subdivision could go up there.

"The Fire Department naturally has concerns, we're all members of this community, so it's not like we're outsiders per se," says Randy Clarke, Former UJFD Chief.

Clark says, there are at least two potential buyers for the land.

Because the Fire Department runs independently, it has the final say on selling it.

That meeting is Monday at 7 p.m. at the station in Underhill.
