The mission of the City of Biddeford Open Space Committee is to seek ways to protect prime open space for the benefit of all current and future Biddeford citizens.
Importance of Open Space
The City of Biddeford contains nearly 30 square miles (over 19,000 acres) of land, much of which remains privately owned open space.
This land often contains important wildlife habitat, is adjacent to the Atlantic Ocean and the Saco River, or is inland, maturing-growth forest or grasslands.
As these lands become available for purchase or donation, it is in the interest of Biddeford citizens to consider whether these parcels should become protected open space for the long-term benefit of the community.
