Municipal Toolbox

Woods for SaleLCC works with local, county, state, and federal partners to protect land. As part of our toolbox we assist in planning and drafting of ordinances. Our focus on natural lands and watershed issues places us right in the center of providing clean air, water, recreational, and educational opportunities for residents and visitors. We have successfully worked with municipalities and other non-profit partners to develop Transferrable Development Rights that include forestland and Watershed Ordinances that protect significant headwaters and drinking water resources.
