ENTERPRISE — After more than a decade of work, what is being deemed the final step to ban all future commercial and residential development on the East Moraine Community Forest was put to rest in a matter of 10 minutes Thursday, Jan. 26.
Wallowa County Commissioners John Hillock, Todd Nash and Susan Roberts joined Wallowa Land Trust Board Chairman Benjamin Curry at the Wallowa Title Co. to sign the East Moraine Community Forest conservation easement. Such an easement is a voluntary legal agreement that limits certain uses of the land in perpetuity. The easement serves as an additional layer of protection on the 1,824-acre property.
