Jonathan H. Spadt, a Shareholder with RatnerPrestia, has been named to Montgomery County Lands Trust’s “Green Futures” Initiative Advocacy Committee, which advocates and recognizes those exemplifying good land protection, stewardship, and smart growth. The Committee will award communities and individuals who contribute successfully to the Trust’s Green Fields/Green Towns programs. It is chaired by Paul Meyer, the Director of Morris Arboretum and the Open Space Board.
The Green Futures Initiative is in part a result of a November 2003 Pennsylvania ballot question approving the $150 million Green Fields/Green Towns referendum, and the recent passage of Pennsylvania’s $625 million Growing Greener II bond initiative. The Montgomery County Lands Trust will be joined by Montgomery County, the Natural Lands Trust, the Montgomery County Planning Commission, and the Partners for Land Preservation in presenting the awards later this year.
In its third decade, RatnerPrestia is one of the largest intellectual property law firms in the Mid-Atlantic region. Its clients range from start-up companies to multi-billion dollar corporations, both domestic and international, and from private individuals to well-known institutions and universities.
