From July 24, 2021 through December 31, 2021, the Board of County Commissioners sought nominations from the public for properties to be considered for acquisition by the County for conservation purposes. A total of 750 nominations were received.
At the May 19, 2022 Conservation Land Acquisition Management (CLAM) Committee, Assistant Planning Director, Holly Coyle, did a presentation on criteria that was used in selecting the properties to be considered. At this time, 30 projects consisting of 173 parcels and 10,000 acres and a total value of $110 million have been recommended.
The CLAM Committee met again on July 6, 2022 to continue discussions regarding staff’s project recommendations and ranking. Staff provided two alternative ranking recommendations, as well as an estimate of project acquisition timing. To view the July 6th meeting, please click here.
At the next Committee meeting scheduled for August 2, 2022 at 5:00 p.m., nominators will be given the opportunity to advocate for project submittals. A final ranking recommendation by the Committee is anticipated.
