Here could be more financial help for co-ho projects ------- Forwarded Message Follows ------- From: <GreenClips [at] aol.com> Subject: GreenClips.100 07.29.98 ECO-REALTOR The environmental Realtor may sound like an oxymoron. But not in Hamilton, Montana where Laura Merrill (and a) handful of other real estate agents in this state have started turning down listings that encourage sprawl or involve damaging wildlife habitat. Sprawl has become the main threat to the natural world in Montana, many environmental groups say. ... A former Forest Service scientist, Merrill is an independent broker who won't sell subdivisions and encourages owners to put conservation restrictions on their land. .. clients ask Merrill about conservation easements, binding legal agreements that limit development. In agreeing to place restrictions on their land, owners can receive estate and income tax benefits and payment from private foundations or Federal, state, or local governments. - The New York Times, 9 July 98, p A13, by Timothy Egan.
