Tucked in a bend of the Assabet River in West Concord, Assabet River Bluff consists of 7 acres offered to the Town for open space and housing purposes.
The project also includes the preservation of 6 acres for open space, and a reservation of 1 acre for affordable housing, with five affordable dwelling units planned. The purchase of the entire 7 acre is a cooperative effort among conservation and housing interests:
-the Land Trust,
-Sudbury Valley Trustees (SVT),
-Town of Concord,
-Concord Municipal Affordable Housing Trust (CMAHT),
-Concord Housing Foundation (CHF) and
-Concord Housing Development Corporation (CHDC).
