DONATED CONSERVATION EASEMENTS

Trillium Health Center

The Fairfield Land Preservation Association is proud to announce that an additional 69 acres of Fairfield County prime soils will be forever protected against non-agricultural development.  Trillium Health Center has placed this conservation easement along with a prohibition on future subdivision of the other half of their Pleasant Township property as they transition ownership of their non-profit facility.  We thank them for their dedication to the future of Fairfield County's natural resources.

Tom Dixon with the support of his family placed permanent protection on 312 acres of prime farmland in Walnut Township.  Located just west of SR 37 and north of SR 204, Dixon became the first landowner to donate an easement with the Fairfield Land Preservation Association.  Dixon stated, "I wanted this land to be available for my neighbors to farm and to help keep farm ground affordable for the next generation".  Recognizing the importance of agriculture in Fairfield County, Walnut Twp. trustee Walter Gabriel stated, "We will support what the landowners want to do to protect their farm ground".  The FLPA wishes to extend our thanks to the Dixon family for their  dedication to land preservation.
