Easement Near Telluride Protects
Working cooperatively with the landowners, TLR accepted three conservation easements covering three adjacent properties on Hastings Mesa, northwest of Telluride, Colorado. In total, the three easements encumber 316 acres, and reduce a total of nine potential new homes to just three. These properties are bordered on three sides by public land, and are visible from the popular Last Dollar Road.
With the addition of these three easements to the TLR portfolio, TLR has now accepted easements protecting over 2,000 acres of vital open space.
