rural quality of life for your children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.
The Kent Land Trust was formed to preserve the rural character of Kent by protecting open space. The town’s most important
scenic areas were identified in the 1990s in a Town Character Study & Open Space Plan commissioned by The Kent Conservation
and Wetlands Commission and carried out by professional planners. This study was subsequently adopted as part of the official
Kent Town Plan. Twenty areas were identified where the preservation of open space is essential to the maintenance of Kent’s
rural character. The Town Character Areas were recently updated and incorporated into Kent's Plan of Conservation and Development update of 2012. Since its inception, the Kent Land Trust has dedicated itself to promoting conservation in all of these areas.
