Friends of Open Space in Keene

New Hampshire continues to be the fastest growing state in New England. Keene is facing pressure from commercial and residential development that could consume much of the open space that presently exists within the City. In 2004 a group of local citizens founded the Friends of Open Space in Keene to preserve open space and other natural resources in Keene and adjoining towns. The Friends advocates that in order to maintain a high quality of life for Keene citizens, there must be a balance between development and environmental protection.
