Planning & Consulting

Helping You Navigate Best Land-Use

Whether it's development or conservation, Gaskins' experienced staff can help you navigate the many available land-use options to provide a solution tailored to your vision and goals.



Planning & Consulting Services:
Conservation Easements
Conservations easements can be a strategic land-use option that would enable a land owner to qualify for federal and state tax deductions and/or credits on income tax (based on the value of the land prior to the easement). A conservation easement restricts future land use from future development while retaining ownership of property for uses such as recreation, farming, ranching or timbering. The expert staff at Gaskins can help you create this easement and allow your land to start working for you.
Land Entitlement, Planning and Consulting
Sometimes the biggest hurdles to getting a project started are related to zoning and local political considerations - Gaskins' expert staff has developed the relationships and the reputation to help you navigate the challenges related to land entitlement to help get your project started on the right track.
