The Green is located within the Union Green National Register District. Its boundaries include the green, Union Grove and the buildings along Buckley Highway to the north of it. It does not include any land to the west and south of the green where no historic properties exist but where the construction of new properties can impact the historic character of the resource.

The green itself is zoned "Union Lands" intended to be a designation that protects open space and "historic values." Route 190, where most of the historic sites are located, is zoned "Country Residential" which requires a minimum one-acre lot with 200 feet of frontage. It would be worthwhile doing a "build-out" to see how this area could be impacted should development occur. The same is true for the property on the east side of Town Hall Road which is zoned "Rural Residential" which allows a minimum three-acre lot with 350 feet of frontage.
