Utah Open Lands and Wasatch County residents are launching a private initiative to insure the forever protection of the Historic North Fields through a three-fold approach.
- Working with willing landowners interested in exercising their private property right to preserve their land, Utah Open Lands will purchase conservation easements and leverage donations.
- Landowners interested in donating a conservation easement to ensure it passes on to the next generation.
- Working with the real estate community Utah Open Lands will aid potential conservation buyers interested in the preservation goals of the North Fields. Conservation Easements guarantee for property owners and the community a legacy from the past forever for the future.
Your tax deductible contributions can be made to Utah Open Lands which will be used exclusively for this preservation effort. Click here to read more.
On March 3rd, Utah Open Lands and members of the Park City Open Space Advisory Committee (COSAC) met with the Park City City Council to discuss recommendations for the protection of the 340 acre Clark Ranch property. After Utah Open Lands’ Spring and Summer investigations of the conservation resources on the property, the COSAC committee made recommendations to ensure that the scenic entry corridor value this land be protected. The next step is to craft a conservation easement as directed by the Park City Council. Park City is to be commended for their commitment to permanent open space preservation and vision which ensures the mountain resort character and protects the high quality of life which attract national and international visitors and bolsters Utah’s overall economy.
