PLT Board Sets Policy on Trident and McCall Endowment Lands

After reviewing both the Trident Holding’s Preserve McCall Proposal and the IDL Payette Endowment Strategy presentation PLT chose not to support either Draft as presented. The Trident’s proposal is in conflict with the PLT Payette River Basin Initiative. The IDL strategy suggests reclassification of transitional lands which can lead to future development and pose a conflict with the Initiative. With this in mind PLT proposes working with the State Land Board to develop protocol for conservation easements on Endowment Land to prevent further threat of development while providing funding to the Endowment Trust.
