The developer of Spring Valley is setting aside a 24-acre tract of undeveloped land to remain green space.

The land-conservation easement agreement between Edwin Cooper and Richland County will be finalized at a ceremony at the entrance to the subdivision Tuesday at 11 a.m.

The parcel contains wetlands, sandhills, pines and hardwood forests. The county is protecting the land, adjacent to highly developed Two Notch Road at the entrance to Spring Valley, to enhance water quality on Little Jackson Creek. The property owner agreed not to develop the property or cut its timber.

The county holds conservation easements on nearly 900 acres of property, according to a Friday news release.
