Conservation Subdivision = Better Land Use
Many of our planning methods and zoning codes are based on archaic land use guidelines that have not been updated for many, many years. Because of this, we are very inefficient in the way we develop our open space. These inefficiencies lead to burdensome expenses that the municipality often times cannot cope with. Conservation Subdivisions represent a better way to develop our land that can ultimately reduce municipal expenses.READ THE FULL STORY >
Forest Echo Bird Sanctuary - Protected by NBLT
In 1907, Rachel and Dr. Sarah Wyckoff of Kingston purchased 177 acres and 48 perches of land from Johnson and Almira Reed of Dallas Borough to have as bird sanctuary and summer retreat. The Wyckoff’s enjoyed and stewarded this idyllic piece of the Back Mountain up until Rachel’s death in 1946. Having a long-standing relationship with Wyoming Seminary Preparatory School Rachel bequeathed her family property to the school with instructions to “Maintain the 17 acres of wooded lands around her cottage known as Forest Echo as a sanctuary for birds and to that end to preserve and maintain the said lands.” From the date of acquisition of the property in 1946, Wyoming Seminary upheld the wishes of the Wyckoff family but realized that a greater level of protection was needed if the property was to be maintained as a sanctuary in perpetuity.READ THE FULL STORY > SEE ALL NEWS >
