ACRES IN CONSERVATION EASEMENTS
Source: Yampa Valley Land Trust
Potential Target: None recommended
Synopsis: Support for agricultural land preservation is reflected in the Routt County Open Lands Plan, adopted in 1995. The plan identifies eight major techniques for agricultural land preservation, including the use of conservation easements. A conservation easement is one tool for protecting a ranch from being sold for development while providing needed cash for continued operation.
