 In the Observer’s November issue, an editorial on Page 2 misstated the amount of land in Suffield that has been preserved from development. (The “237,000+ acres” stated would be almost ten times the area of the town.) In the Town administration’s presentation to the October 10 Town Meeting, the amount preserved by the Town was listed as 1,373 acres, about five percent of the town’s total area. The Observer reported that number on Page 8 of the same issue in an article about a decision at the October 19 meeting protecting 43 acres of farm property on Hill Street. Including property protected in some other manner, a little over half the land in Suffield is preserved from development.
