Plans for Conservation Easement Make Progress
Rock Point Pursues Multi-Partner Approach to Preservation & Public Access
By Laurie Broughton
The Trustees of the Episcopal Diocese of Vermont, at the request of the Rock Point Board, have moved closer to conveying a conservation easement on a twenty-acre parcel of the Rock Point property bordering the City of Burlington’s Arms Grant Park by approving a Purchase and Sales Agreement with the Lake Champlain Land Trust (LCLT), which will hold the easement. This agreement represents the next step in a cooperative effort between LCLT, the City of Burlington, and the Diocese for the maintenance of trails, the preservation of sensitive ecosystems, and public access between Rock Point and the Arms Grant Park.
