Cobbs Conservation Easement
A conservation easement donated on this 2.2-acre property permanently protects more than 300 feet of shoreline on Conway Lake and more than 200 feet of road frontage on scenic Potter Road in the town of Conway, N.H. Originally, the property had the development potential for two home sites. Now, the conservation easement prohibits residential buildings, protecting this valuable open space while allowing the Cobbs family to continue to use the land for family recreation for generations to come.
“Having been involved with land trusts elsewhere, I was delighted when a group took steps to set up a land trust in this area. I went to the organizational meeting and supported the organization. The existence of a local land trust now enables people in this area to either donate land or conservation easements on smaller pieces of land not accepted by the larger organizations like the Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests and the Nature Conservancy.”
