Land Use and Natural Resources Planning

Lower Roanoke (The Nature Conservancy)

Water and power resources are regulated by a multitude of federal, state, local, and common laws.  Management tends to be fragmented.  This common practice contributes to shortages and conflicts.  We believe that a systematic approach for water diversions and power developments and the lands and natural resources impacted by them tends to be far more effective and durable.  We have a track record of developing and implementing:

  • Comprehensive settlements;
  • Habitat Conservation Plans;
  • Integrated resource management plans; and 
  • Conservation provisions in real estate agreements.
