Preserving Weston's Rural Character

This information, including text and photographs, was prepared by former Planning Board member Pamela W. Fox for the Weston Planning Board. Weston has a particular look that is special to the town. The wooded landscape is knit together by a network of narrow, winding roads dating back to the 18th century. These roads are lined with stone walls and natural vegetation. Mature trees provide a buffer between streets and houses. Interspersed along scenic roads are historic neighborhoods, each with their own sense of place.

By understanding what constitutes Weston’s rural character, new homes, additions, and landscape alterations can be designed to fit comfortably within the architectural and landscape traditions of the town.
