We are getting excited with the progress of a potential project in Nibley. The Utah Quality Growth commission, tasked with distributing the funds from the LeRay McAllister Critical Land Conservation Fund, visited the property in September and approved funding! This project is still in the works as we are now going to be applying for NRCS ACEP funding to complete this project.
The property is an important field for local agriculture and is being hemmed in by development. The owner of the property has also been working with Nibley to discuss plans for a trail that may be installed on the property, giving the public access to open space and a connection to our agricultural heritage.
The city of Nibley has been busy this year, becoming the first city in Utah to become a certified wildlife habitat by the National Wildlife Federation. Earlier this year, BRLC met with Mayor Shaun Dustin in order to discuss ways in which Nibley can provide more green ways and open space for future generations.
If you are a landowner interested in protecting your ground from development, even after you pass away, please contact us! We would love to discuss your special land, and how a conservation easement can ensure that your land is kept the way you love it.
