Many municipalities own land that has been transformed into parks or preserves to benefit their local citizens. While these parks are often highly valued pieces of open space to the community, they can also possess high property values within highly developed areas, and there’s nothing to stop future supervisors from profiting from that land. In order to prevent the future temptation to liquidate municipality- or township-owned lands, conservation easements can be used to preserve the land in perpetuity, adding an additional level of oversight and protection.
NALT has worked directly with municipalities to conserve multiple parcels of land, as well as coordinating with individuals wanting to donate land to their municipality. Often times, this complex process requires working with local governments, national or state organizations and citizens, and our experience has prepared us to accomplish your conservation goals.
