Latt Maxcy Ranch Sustainable Land Use

Grasshopper Sparrow Ammodramus savannarum

To assess land use options to increase the value of the 47,000-acre property, Cardno has provided a broad range of environmental planning and ecological services to the owner for more than 10 years.

Through Cardno’s assistance with the development of a 50-year strategic vision for the property, Cardno is now pursuing permits for multiple projects, including alternative energy endeavors, the establishment of natural resource and wetland mitigation banks, and a regional potable water supply source.

We are working with various regional, state, and local governments to secure appropriate permitting and have already been successful in obtaining a 35 million gallons per day water use permit for a biofuel project and permitting a 700-acre potato field on the interior of the ranch.
