Are there circumstances where the Land Trust would not accept a donated easement?
Yes. The Eagle Valley Land Trust may decline to accept a conservation easement for any reason. Reasons include, but are not limited to: the Trust deems that the reserved rights or proposed development on the land will interfere with the preservation of the conservation values; it believes that the easement does not provide significant public benefit; if there are not documentable conservation values to meet IRS requirements, or if conservation is required for approval of a development. The Eagle Valley Land Trust reserves the right to accept or deny a conservation easement in its sole discretion. Please contact us for more information.
