Property Name: Hot Bottom Conservation Restriction
Acquisition Date: November 22, 2005
Acres: 5.30
Location: 1909 Phinney’s Lane, Barnstable

Description: BLT took the lead to purchase a vital 5.3-acre parcel of wooded upland on Phinney’s Lane. Known as the Hot Bottom Road Project, this parcel was a critical link in the crosstown Cape Cod Pathways segment that connects from Phinney’s Lane through to Cape Cod Community College. The land is located in a wellhead protection district, the most critical area surrounding Barnstable Village’s 48-acre public water supply. The Town purchased the woodlands with Land Bank funds and BLT raised money from grants and private donations to purchase a conservation restriction that permanently protects the land and a vital Pathways link.

Habitat: Oak woodlands
