Attorney Sean M. Byrne to Speak About Trail Easements at National Conference
Attorney Sean M. Byrne will present a seminar at the annual national conference of the Land Trust Alliance (LTA) about the use of public trail easements to encourage support for land conservation. The LTA conference will be held in New Orleans next week from Sept 17-19. Byrne will showcase Sarasota County’s ‘river to river trail’—an interconnected network of outdoor recreational trailways stretching from the Peace River to the Myakka River that Sarasota County will be developing. Byrne represented Sarasota County in the acquisition of portions of the trail network, some of which are easements across privately owned working ranches. The seminar will give recommendations to real estate lawyers and land conservationists on how to incorporate trail easements in conservation easement transaction, particularly when public funds are used to acquire the conservation easements.
