Mobbs Farm Conservation Update
Thank You for Voting to Conserve Mobbs Farm!
The members of the Mobbs Committee would like to express our gratitude for the overwhelming support expressed for the conservation of Mobbs Farm on Town Meeting Day. Article I passed with 91% of the vote, and we couldn't be happier that voters agreed that Mobbs Farm should be protected for future generations of Jericho residents and wildlife. With conservation costs now 100% funded, we look forward to the work of preserving this beautiful land.
So… What are the Next Steps?
In collaboration with the Jericho Underhill Land Trust (JULT) and the Vermont Land Trust (VLT), the Mobbs Committee will seek the Selectboard’s approval to move forward with the conservation effort. Assuming an affirmative Selectboard vote, Town leadership will work with VLT toward conveying a conservation easement.
If you are interested in learning about the components of a conservation easement, please read the attached summary provided by the VLT. As always, please feel free to reach out to us with any questions or comments, and THANK YOU for your continued support!
