The town announced on Feb. 16 that it had officially filed the easement for the property, protecting 30.286 acres of town-owned property along the South Fork of the New River. The easement — filed on Jan. 21 — is in partnership with the North Carolina Land and Water Fund and will protect the property in perpetuity, while allowing for natural riparian restoration, enhanced wildlife habitat, promotion of clean water and passive recreation.

The town of Boone purchased the 53.8 acre Bolick Farm — a former dairy farm — in March 2016 for use as a future Municipal Services Complex to house a new consolidated facility for the Boone Police Department, 911 Emergency Communications Department, Public Works Department, Planning and Inspections Department and a fourth fire station as well as to protect the valuable river front property.
