Next Steps
Feb. 2021 Update from City Manager Kevin Dorn:
“The Council has stated that it is their intent to have this conservation easement completed, when funding to go through the process and support the organization to whom the easement will go is available.  In the meantime, most of the land is already restricted due to ag mitigation. With these restriction already in existence on much of the property and other restrictions such as wetlands, etc. there is no danger of development on the property.  When funding is available and our attorney’s have some time I expect this project will move forward.”
