ARLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - The town of Arlington is in the process of buying 400 acres of Red Mountain woodland to create a town forest.

The Arlington Recreational and Park Committee has been working with the Town Activities Committee to buy the land for $287,000.

The deal must be approved by the Arlington select board.

Activities committee chairman Hooper Pickering says the project provides the community with the chance to conserve “an excellent piece of forest land” that will give members of the community access to a variety of outdoor activities.
