A. P. Hill buffer preserved

Fredericksburg Free Lance-Star (VA)
December 19, 2006

Army officials have reached agreement with several conservation groups to protect 1,320 acres near the post from development.

The agreement, which will be signed today, is a first for the Caroline County post. Officials there hailed it as a major step in protecting the fort's training programs.

"From the military standpoint, the people who are really going to benefit from these easements are the fighting men and women training at the installation," A.P. Hill spokesman Ken Perrotte said. "These easements help preserve realistic conditions for training."

A.P. Hill is entering into a partnership with The Trust for Public Land, The Nature Conservancy, The Conservation Fund, Virginia Outdoors Foundation and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to acquire the first conservation easement under the Army Compatible Use Buffer Program.
