ESLC, Town of Easton Partner on Waterfront Visioning Process

Eastern Shore Land Conservancy has partnered with the town of Easton to determine the future of 11 acres of waterfront property along the Tred Avon River.


The Easton Point property on West Glenwood Avenue – a former dump currently closed to the public – will be the subject of a year-long public design process to determine future uses. The first public tour of the property will be held June 2nd from 5 – 7 p.m. This tour will kick off a community visioning process. The first public meeting will be held June 9th at 6 pm at Easton Elementary School’s Moton Building.


“This property is Easton’s only waterfront access available so citizen input is vital,” said Easton Mayor Robert Willey. “I encourage everyone to participate in this process.”


This project is a partnership between the town of Easton and ESLC;s Center for Towns and is supported by the Town Creek Foundation.


“We hope everyone in the community will come be part of this exciting opportunity to contribute to the future of this piece of land,” said ESLC’s Community Projects Manager Lisetta Silvestri. “Open space and waterfront access will be an amazing addition to our community and we look forward to working with everyone over the coming months to develop the community’s vision for the property.”


ESLC’s Center for Towns, launched earlier this year, is an unprecedented initiative aimed at strengthening and supporting the small towns of the Eastern Shore. More information on the project including directions to the tour, can be found at ESLC’s Center for Towns website by visiting the project page for Easton Point.
