Open Space Inventory
The Land Committee's inventory of open space in Waltham.
The Land Committee of the Waltham Land Trust has conducted an inventory of all open space parcels of 4 acres or more in the city. For each parcel, the committee has investigated three characteristics:
Size - The size in acres.
Value - A number that combines several factors to determine a value for each parcel.
Risk - A subjective assessment of the risk that a parcel might be developed.
For more information, see Open Space Evaluation Criteria.
