The Fowl Meadow is an environmentally, sensitive area, with a tremendous amount of historical significance. Moreover, it was designated as an Area of Critical Environmental Concern on Aug. 20, 1992. It is Representative Timilty’s unwavering goal, to protect the wetlands of this area, as well as the thousands of acres of pristine open space. In doing so Timilty believes that the adoption of such amendments will go a long way in the preservation of the integrity of the Blue Hills
“The Fowl Meadow is an environmental treasure," said Timilty. "As such, I, along with several colleagues from the House of Representatives, am determined to ensure that both the ecology and history of this environmentally, pristine area is protected.”
Timilty has also filed amendment #91 to H4138, The Ford Ranch Open Space amendment, in an attempt to ensure that not less than $4,000,000 shall be expended to the town of Milton for assistance in the acquisition of certain parcels of land on Hillside Street and Ford Ranch Road in the town of Milton for the purpose of conservation land. Timilty stated, “The preservation of green open space and its all important ecology is always foremost in my priorities.”
