Cascade Land Conservancy honors Pierce County Council with “Cascade Leadership Award”

The Cascade Land Conservancy has honored Calvin Goings and the Pierce County Council with the “Cascade Leadership Award” for their work on farmland and open-space preservation.
Goings, who chairs the council’s Community Development Committee, was the driving force and prime sponsor of the Transfer of Development Rights/Purchase of Development Rights (TDR/PDR) legislation, adopted by the council on Nov. 27, 2007.
The nonprofit Cascade Land Conservancy is Washington’s largest independent land conservation and stewardship organization. Over the last decade it has worked to conserve 140,000 acres from Tacoma’s Snake Lake park to the Snoqualmie Forest.
