A Work Session to Review the City of Fredericksburg Proposed Conservation Easement – Rappahannock  River

Topic Description:

The Board of Supervisors requested a work session to review the proposed conservation easement.  Attached is previous correspondence concerning the Board’s general support of the concept.  Also attached is a summary of the easement terms prepared by the City of Fredericksburg.


Representatives from the City of Fredericksburg and the Nature Conservancy have been invited to the meeting.  In May 2004, City elections took place resulting in a number of changes on the Council and in the office of the Mayor.  It is believed that the new Mayor and City Council are seeking input from other jurisdictions regarding the easement.


There are 485 acres within Fauquier County that are potentially covered by the proposed easement.


Requested Action of the Board of Supervisors: 

Conduct a work session.
