The Maitland City Council will contemplate classifying a donated parcel of Howell Branch wetlands as conservation land at its Monday night meeting. 

The 3.38-acre package of land - donated by the city of Winter Park - is adjacent to wetlands that are already owned by the city of Maitland and classified as environmental land. The Maitland charter's Maitland Heritage Land classification covers lands whose use promotes the environmental, recreational, cultural and aesthetic character of the city.

The classification would not restrict recreational activities if walking trails in the wetlands are considered in the future.
