The Molyneux properties covered by proposed conservation easements are spread across much of southern Blaine County.

   The use of nearly $1 million from Blaine County’s Land, Water and Wildlife fund to prevent development on about 2,000 acres of south-county farmland received “conceptual” approval from the county commissioners Tuesday.

    The commissioners already granted such approval to the Molyneux Family Legacy Project in April, but had to reconsider it due to several changes.

    Final approval depends on successful completion of a “due diligence” phase to iron out details.
