Threats Details: 

Presently, the streetscape around the green represents a high degree of integrity. However, development pressure is particularly great in such a dense urban core and can already be seen in some of the newer buildings that do not conform to the earlier setback and height restrictions. Care should be taken that the zoning regulations support the use and reuse of the present structures that are representative of an important era of the town's development. While little if any of the physical integrity of the strip of land that was once part of the green remains, its associative value as the site of the first meetinghouse around which the community grew is still important, and care should be taken against further encroachment of its borders.
