Shelton finalizes egg farm purchase for open space

The Board of Aldermen has approved the final $150,000 payment for the city’s purchase of the Dikovsky poultry and egg farm on Old Town Road, off Buddington Road.

The $450,000 total cost will prevent the land from potentially being subdivided into home sites.

The 13-acre property is near the Shelton Rec Path and will become open space. An older Dikovsky family member retains life use of most farm buildings.
