From Fairfax Free Citizen:

Landowners involved in Virginia’s conservation easement program achieved a significant victory yesterday.

The Virginia Outdoors Foundation (VOF) approved a “RESOLUTION TO SEEK A SOLUTION TO EASEMENT ADMINISTRATION ISSUES” associated with a dispute between landowner Martha Boneta and Piedmont Environmental Council (PEC), which co-holds, along with VOF, an open-space easement on Ms. Boneta’s farm in Fauquier County.

The approval took place at a VOF Board of Trustees Meeting in Senate Room A of the General Assembly Building in Richmond. Approximately 75 people attended the meeting, most of them being supporters of Ms. Boneta in her quest to stop the harassment she has been receiving (allegedly) from PEC over the past eight years. Ms. Boneta and her supporters held a rally at the Bell Tower on the Capitol grounds just before the meeting.
