Maplewood City Council Policy & Politics


Open Space Protection

Today's Pioneer Press includes an article on the topic of protecting Maplewood's open spaces. I have a related item on the agenda for next week's council meeting.

The article states, "While still owning the land, the city would grant an easement to a conservation organization that would monitor the land and enforce any land restrictions. The restrictions also would be binding on future owners of the land."

Note the term "future owners." Conservation easements do not in any way prevent the city from selling land. On the contrary, they are the kind of thing you put on land when you expect it to have different owners in the future.
