I have about 96 acres just outside Gatesville, right close to Ft Hood on the Leon River. My neighbor has 150 acres that adjoin my property. Our properties border part of Ft Hood. He told me today the federal govt/army pay him to never develop his property commercially or do anything but farm it. They send someone yearly he said to verify he hasn't broken the agreement. I was going to get more info from him when he had time but has anyone heard of this? My grandfather bought this back in 2008 and since he passed its now mine. Just wondering what kind of deal this is and if anyone had done it or even heard of it. Thanks for any input.

Wouldn't surprise me. Admittedly, I didn't read the whole webpage, but this may be helpful:

Haven't heard of that but have heard of something similar. My son's in-laws have family land that borders a river/wetlands. Many years ago some branch of the fed government approached the granddad about a similar setup as above- they pay some amount every year to the landowner who, in turn, agrees to some conditions associated with the land leased. I think they are now dealing with the fact that they can't do anything, improve the land, build anything, etc. from here on out.

My land was under CRP when I bought it a couple years ago. The contract just ran out on it last week, and I didn't renew. I knew what I was getting into when I bought it, but it wasn't fun being the new owner of land and not being able to do anything with it for 2 years. There's a ton of different programs like that out there, CRP, Wetlands, etc... it would benefit you greatly to find out exactly which program he's in. Or go by your county ag office and see what they have available.
