No. However, LPOSC will likely only accept easements that prohibit large-scale subdivision and development for mining, non-agricultural commercial, and industrial uses. They do not have to ban all future development. Conservation easements are intended to be flexible enough to permit limited residential development, as well as permit working family farm and ranch operations. The terms of an easement are decided by the landowner, but the land trust will only assume management if it meets requisite standards for conservation.
