The ECCA has been working hard on a number of issues in the
County that affect the quality of Essex residents. While the use of conservation easements to preserve open space lands and forests has been our primary focus since the ECCA’s inception in 2006, we have evolved to embrace other conservation issues
that are also critically important to the future of our citizens.
Essex County has made great progress in these last 8 years with our percentage of land under easement while we are delighted with this success, particularly relative to the other counties in the Northern Neck and Middle Peninsula. We have grown from under 4 percent in 2007 to 13 percent as of June 30, 2015.
