The move, spearheaded by board chair Lyle Robinson, will result in the county's Environmental Services department drafting a set of rules for the administration of such easements,that preserve natural areas for the benefit of the public.

Robinson, an avid ATV supporter, seemed an unlikely candidate to back such a move, but he and the board want a process in place so developers in the future can turn over wetland areas to the county to oversee.
