Family land can help build communities.
Family assets. Community wealth. The Heir Property Act would help make family land an asset for Arkansas families by facilitating responsible property management. This is possible because the Heir Property Act carefully balances the interests of owners who want to retain their family land with the interests of owners who want to sell their share.
But it also promotes community wealth and development. How? When families maintain and develop their property and productively manage their land, the county gets more tax revenue. That means more money for county services and more money for community development. And that benefits everyone.
We need support from residents in each of Arkansas's 75 counties to get this important and balanced legislation passed. Currently, we have identified supporters in 44 towns in 26 counties.
You can help make sure everyone across our great state knows about this community development opportunity. Here's how: Right now, forward this newsletter to three of your friends. Post it on Facebook. Share it on Twitter. Spread the word. Our legislators need to know that we support the Heir Property Act because of the good it means for Arkansas families and Arkansas communities.
Stay informed. Get involved.
