Thumbs Up on the Conservation Easement
Posted on Oct 7th, 2010
L. to r., Barbara Fratila, Environmental Committee Attorney; Bob Bailey, F.O.R. Treasurer; Tom Valliere, Environment Committee Co-chair; Nancy Kanter, F.O.R. President; Susan Alford, Environmental Committee Co-chair; and Dyer Moore Conservation Easement landowner, gave a big thumbs up after signing the Easement Dedication Agreement at Saturday's annual meeting.
|On Saturday, September 11, 2010, F.O.R. San Bernard announced they have enacted their first Easement Dedication Agreement at the Saturday 9-11-10 annual meeting at Dido’s Restaurant. Working closely with Ft. Bend county landowner, Dyer Moore, Ft. Bend County Commissioner Richard Morrison, Brazoria County Commissioner Dude Payne and state and county officials, the easement is the culmination of more than 12 months of extensive effort involving the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) and Ducks Unlimited. As a bonus, it is now planned for the easement to be twice the size as originally plotted with the eventuality of it growing even larger – mostly paid for with SEP money that would have otherwise gone to Harris or other Texas counties.
F.O.R. thanks State Rep. Dennis Bonnen and Senator Joan Huffman for their support. Congratulations to Friends Of the River San Bernard for a job well done!!!
