Holliston's Open Space Committee is applying for a $500,000 state grant that will allow the town to acquire unused parcels from NSTAR, chairman George Johnson said.
The utility owns as much as 86 acres off of Adams Street, located next to town-owned forest and conservation land, Town Administrator Paul LeBeau said. Even if the town is awarded the full grant, local funds from the town's Community Preservation Act account will likely be needed to complete any sale, LeBeau said.
Johnson told selectmen he hopes to hear the state's decision on the grant before October's Town Meeting.
