Commission To Consider Resolution For Land Program

Published: March 16, 2008
The Highlands County commissioners will consider passing a resolution Tuesday calling on the governor and the state Legislature to create a successor program to Florida Forever and provide funding to continue buying lands for conservation and outdoor recreation.

Since 2000, Florida Forever, a program of the Legislature, has helped acquire more than 600,000 acres for conservation and public use. The agency has been allocating $300 million per year to purchase environmentally sensitive lands in partnerships with local governments, state agencies, water management districts and non-profit organizations.
