The Cranston City Council will consider Mayor Fung’s proposal to protect 50 acres of forest and farmland at its September 27 meeting at 7 PM at City Hall. The Moreau property is on Natick Avenue. If approved, 20 acres will remain a horse farm, while the city will promote passive recreation on the other 30 acres. The project will cost $1.2 million of which the city will pay $300,000 from accumulated building impact fees. The US Natural Resource Conservation Service will contribute another $600,000 to protect the land, and the Moreau family will donate the final $300,000.
