GROTON -- The Conservation Commission voted in support of a suggestion by Historical Commission member Michael Roberts to post signs around town, including on conservation land, which would inform about features of historical or natural significance.

Roberts said he belongs to a subcommittee created by the Historical Commission to study the possibility of erecting informational signage around Groton as a way to educate residents on their local heritage.

Roberts hopes to get funding for the signs from the Community Preservation Committee, but otherwise plans are still in the early stages.

Commissioners gave it their support.

"It would provide an enhancement of our conservation land," said Commissioner Bruce Easom.

"I love the idea," added Commissioner Peter Morrison.
