DCR Landscape Designation Comment Period Extended

As part of its Forest Futures Visioning process, DCR is adopting a new land designation system that will result in all DCR lands being designated as reserves, parklands or woodlands depending on their dominant characteristics and suitability.  Because of the holidays and the snowstorm, DCR has extended the written public comment by one week - the deadline for written comments is now Friday, January 21st.

Written comments can be sent to either:


or to


Landscape Designation Comments

251 Causeway St, Suite 600

Boston, MA 02114

The draft Selection Criteria and Management Guidelines report are still available, here.  Notes taken by the breakout groups during the public workshops held on the Landscape Designations can be found here.
