Property Description: The Nuzzo easement is located on the northeastern outskirts of Jeffersonville Village in the town of Cambridge, Vermont. The parcel lies between Vermont Routes 15, 108 and 109 and is bounded to the southwest by the Brewster River (500 feet frontage), to the west, north and east by a large meander of the Lamoille River (3,400 feet frontage), and to the south by 1,155 feet of the Cambridge Greenway rail trail. It includes an island in the Lamoille River at the western edge just above the Brewster River confluence.

Project Background: The location at the Lamoille/Brewster confluence makes the property significant to river restoration and flood resilience efforts. The purpose of this easement is to protect a critical floodplain and to establish a 50-foot buffer along both rivers. The southern easement boundary follows the multi-use Cambridge Greenway trail, a spur of the Lamoille Valley Rail Trail. The trail bridge spanning the Brewster River was recently rebuilt to reduce ice-jam flood hazards.
