Key to meeting that objective is to preserve open space in the form of parks, trails, flood plains and historic sites while being sensitive to the rights of landowners and developers.

The Citizens for Brentwood Green Space presented the City of Brentwood a check in the amount of $21,000 at the February 8, 2016, Brentwood City Commission meeting. This is the fifth check presented to the City for Marcella Vivrette Smith Park.
 
CBGS formally announced a goal to help raise $300,000 over a five year period in late 2011 toward the acquisition of the remaining 77.89 acres at Ravenswood Farm. In his presentation, President Gil Hutchinson stated that CBGS continues to push to add green space in our community.   With this payment, a total of $140,534.69 has been paid to the City so far.  These funds helped Brentwood purchase the remaining acres at Ravenswood Farm and add future amenities at Marcella Vivrette Smith Park, including the development of a new picnic shelter as part of the City’s Phase II expansion.
