The closest Article involved returning 17 of approximatly 298 acres of town-owned woodlots to residential use through sale by a licensed real estate broker. The land, along W. Appleton Road, had been acquired through non-payment of taxes in 1968, as noted in the last forestry report dated 2001. The land was estimated to have been harvested some 40 years prior, according to the same 2001 report
