1200 Acres to Become Cumberland Wilderness Retreat
Ardavan Afrakhteh the president of Land South Tennessee, LLC has announced his partnership with Keith Thompson. Serves to protect a large portion of the Cumberland Plateau, as most of the land will be a wildlife and nature conservatory.
“We were thrilled to find that Land South Tennessee was interested in preserving and protecting this land for posterity,” said Thompson. “We knew the 3700 acre area had been divided into three parcels for future development, but never imagined it the possibility of the entire property being protected in perpetuity.”
“Originally the plan was to build 600 houses on the property, but fate and stewardship availed to help maintain this land for the community,” said Afrakhteh. “The Foothills Land Conservancy stepped into the picture to educate us on the conservation easement process and manage it from start to finish. At that point I knew it was the right thing to do.” Foothills Land Conservancy (FLC www.foothillsland.org)
