Hudson Forms a Land Trust
Five Residents Form a Board of Directors
As the Town has acquired land resources under the CPA, the State requires that the conservation restrictions (CRs) on the properties be held in a trust. Regional trusts, like the Sudbury Valley Trustees, offer this service for a fee, generally between $12,000 and $25,000. The founders of the Hudson Land Trust believe we can offer more value to the Town and community while charging lower management fees.
Five conservation-minded residents have volunteered to drive the formation of the legal entity – a 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation – and to serve on its board. We are:
- Greg Opp, President
- Andy Horvitz, Treasurer
- Tom Green, Clerk
- Brian White
- Robert Burgess
We have filed our registration paperwork with the State of Massachusetts and the IRS. Once we receive the necessary approvals, we can begin working with the Town on conservation restrictions, start fundraising, solicit volunteers, and commence our land stewardship responsibilities.
Thank you for your support.
