Gates Mills Land Conservancy

 The Gates Mills Land Conservancy is a private, non-profit, tax-exempt membership organization whose mission is to preserve the unique nature of the open space in the Village of Gates Mills, Ohio. The membership includes approximately one-third of the 950 families in 2007. The Land Conservancy operates as an effective and vibrant volunteer organization, designed and chartered to preserve open land through outright purchase of land or through the issuance of a Conservation Easement.

Since its formation in 1988, the Gates Mills Land Conservancy has preserved 469 acres of land within the village. Combined with the considerable green space owned by the Village of Gates Mills and the 546 acres of the Cleveland Metroparks North Chagrin Reservation, close to 15% of the Village is protected today. The extent of this protected land is shown on the corridor maps which follow.

Our Preservation Strategy identifies an additional 300 critical acres we must preserve. When we do reach our objectives, more than 25% of the land within the Village will be parkland, Village-owned or land preserved as open space. We believe that this is a very realistic plan. But the clock is ticking as development pressure from our eastern and western borders increases at a relentless pace.
