On November 7, 2006, the residents of Quincy voted to adopt the Community Preservation Act (CPA), which provides a steady funding source for three important community concerns — the preservation of land for open space, the restoration of historic sites, and the creation of affordable housing.

This site, referred to by many as the Hazeltine property, was one of the first parcels to be purchased by the city and preserved as open space using CPA funds. The site boasts 14 acres of beautiful forest, a stream, wetlands, and lake, and is sandwiched between Faxon Park’s 60+ acres and 50+ acres of protected open space in Braintree. Preserving this site creates approximately 150 acres of green space, providing a corridor for wildlife to navigate and allowing for plentiful hiking trails connecting Quincy and Braintree. Deer, fox, coyote, turkey, heron, and other small urban mammals can be seen on the site.

The success of the CPA campaign was the result of a volunteer effort by members of the Quincy Environmental Network (www.qenet.org) who worked tirelessly to get the measure on the ballot and successively passed in all 30 precincts.

Site History:

The previous owners of this site, Avalon Bay Properties, had planned to construct 146 new housing units on this property, which would have had major impacts on the local environment and traffic in the area. Residents in the neighborhood protested the development at community meetings. Due to the discovery of an on-site access requirement in the owner’s permit, the development was delayed.
