The Morgantown Land Reuse and Preservation Agency (LRaPA) was established by City Council in 2018. The LRaPA is dedicated to preserving the unique character of our natural environment, our resources, and our quality of life and promoting the social and economic vitality of our community now and for future generations. We shall accomplish this by pursuing the acquisition, management, and disposition of property suitable for conservation, water quality protection, public space, affordable housing, and commercial uses and by promoting their productive use.

The LRaPA can accept contributions of real estate for conservation purposes that may entitle the donor to a tax credit against federal income tax.  Please contact the Agency’s staff at 304-284-7431 to learn more.  DISCLAIMER:  Offers are not accepted without formal Agency action.  This statement is not tax advice to donors or any third party.  Interested donors should consult their tax professionals to evaluate tax benefits. 


The Land Reuse and Preservation Agency operates under the control of a board of directors, which consists of seven members appointed by City Council. The board shall include at least one voting member who is a resident of the city, is not a public official or municipal employee, and maintains membership with a recognized civic organization within the city. A majority of the members of the board shall be residents of the city.

Each member of the board shall have experience in one of the following areas:

  1. Real estate transactions or financing;
  2. Development of commercial or residential property;
  3. Establishment or use of public lands;
  4. Land conservation or preservation; or
  5. Development or management of programs promoting access to public lands or conservation areas.
