"Our feeling is this would be a way for the developer to kind of stand behind the notion that he would like areas to be undeveloped," said Ron Ainspan, one of about eight organizers behind the Coggins Conservation Project. "And it would be some reassurance for the neighborhood that there wouldn't be further expansion of the development in the future."
Josh O'Conner, a zoning administrator with Buncombe County, said the push for conservation "is sort of a new wrinkle in the project," and he didn't have a lot of information on it yet. As the development already received Board of Adjustment approval, it's unlikely a conservation easement would require further county approvals.
Ainspan said they are in the early stages of working toward the conservation easement, but he said they plan to meet with developers this week. They've raised about $1,000 so far, with an opening round fundraising goal of $12,000.

Plans also call for development in three phases, which could give families interested in preserving land enough time to buy some property back, Turner said.
The Citizen Times could not reach developer David Case for comment Monday.
"That in and of itself speaks to a commitment people can get behind," she said.
The Coggins Conservation Projects consists of original family members, neighbors, conservation enthusiasts and agricultural supporters, said Ainspan, who has lived on and farmed the Coggins property in the past.
The development would keep about 86 acres as open space, but the easement proposal would formalize that commitment and make it permanent.

"The only thing that causes someone to have to come back for approval is when they modify plans that increase the impact or perhaps shift the impacts," O'Conner said. "If what they're doing is removing lots or uses to make land available for an easement, then generally they would be allowed to pursue those plans. If they start to change the overall plan moving roads, shifting where lots were going to be, or moving lots closer to areas previously shown as open Converse Leather White
