Winter Oaks Subdivision
Parcel ID 183-029 and 191-101
Juniper Hill Subdivision
Parcel ID 183-020-002
The Androscoggin land trust held a conservation easement on Huston Farm, an abutting property to city-owned former Winter Oaks subdivision. During permitting of the Auburn-Lewiston airport’s parallel taxiway project, wetland mitigation opportunities were needed. The land trust suggested that wetland values on a portion of city-owned property were aligned with values being lost at the airport during the construction project. The land trust secured ownership of 25 acres of former subdivision property and a right of way to access that property from South Main Street.
The land trust retains the right to develop trails and other amenities on the 25-acre parcel, but resource constraints have kept from happening. A map from the New Auburn Master Plan shows the broader vision for an interconnected "greenway" system of open space and trails that links the Little Androscoggin and Androscoggin Rivers.
