What is a conservation easement
The conservation easement is a legal way to protect the land on Hinckley Ranch. It ensures specific commitments that restrict future development, creating a safe haven for the wildlife and the land. It also certifies that the land qualifies for tax credits and super special tax status. Existing buildings as well as those suggested in the M.A.C proposal would be constructed in such a way that the wildlife corridor would be protected and void of buildings. All structures must be a minimum of 100 feet from the creek.
