6:30 Meet and Greet Neighbors and State and County Elected Officials
7:00 Meeting Call to Order
The Greater Ruxton Area Foundation (GRAF) has been active for years in efforts to preserve open space in our neighborhoods. More than 25 properties have been placed in conservancy through the Foundation, which is a §501(c)(3) charitable organization. Following federal tax guidelines, owners of qualifying properties agree that development of their land shall be restricted in perpetuity. In return, the owner can receive significant federal and state tax benefits. A brief explanation of the process will be made at the Annual Membership Meeting.
