|Subject:||[CPEO-MEF] Development Rights|
In my recent message on "encroachment" I mentioned that the military might purchase the development rights for properties adjacent to military installations threatened by encroachment. Three organizations - the Trust for Public Land, the Western Governors' Association, and the National Cattlemen's Beef Association - just published "Purchase-of-Development Rights: Conserving Lands, Preserving Western Livelihoods." Though the 28-page report does not address military environmental issues, it's a valuable primer on the concepts of conservation easements and the purchase of development rights. The report may be downloaded as a 1 megabyte PDF file from http://www.tpl.org/tier3_cd.cfm?content_item_id=2302&folder_id=193 LS -- Lenny Siegel Director, Center for Public Environmental Oversight c/o PSC, 222B View St., Mountain View, CA 94041 Voice: 650/961-8918 or 650/969-1545 Fax: 650/968-1126 firstname.lastname@example.org http://www.cpeo.org ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
