  • 1. Acton’s Scenic Roads Bylaw regulates the removal of stone walls and trees within the right of way for 33 roads. Using this prioritization as a starting point, consider other locations where stone walls or other landscape features provide an important reminder of Acton’s historical development and land use or contribute to our appreciation of the landscape.
