To meet all the matching dollar requirements of the New Hampshire Land and Community Investment Program (LCIP) to purchase the Spring Ledge Farm easement, longtime New London residents William F. Kidder and James C. Cleveland donated the value of their conservation easements on 16.2 acres of their land on Pleasant Street. For 25 years, the Town of New London held the easement, with Ausbon Sargent as the backup grantee. In June 2016, the Town acquired title to the property resulting in Ausbon Sargent becoming the primary easement holder. The land preserves open space and provides outdoor recreation for hiking trails. The property cannot be subdivided or used to satisfy density requirements with respect to development of other lands.
