CLA volunteer attorney Emily Russell was successful in negotiating the sale of a 6.5 acre parcel of property that will now be placed in a permanent conservation easement! The property, adjacent to an urban park in a part of Henrico County adjacent to the City of Richmond, was slated to be clear-cut by a developer who planned to build 40 modular houses on the site.
Instead, thanks to the efforts of Attorney Russell, Friends of Bryan Park, The Capital Region Land Conservancy, the Henricoplis Soil and Water Conservation District, and local citizens, the property will now provide permanent stormwater retention and wildlife habitat in the middle of a highly developed urban watershed that drains to the Chesapeake Bay.
Thank you, Attorney Russell, for your help with this victory!
