The Board will hear a request from County Parks to approve guidelines to support the Land Conservation Grant Program, which will provide small grants to qualifying organizations using Measure A funds to support the conservation of natural areas. Twenty percent of funds from the quarter-cent sales tax, commonly called Measure A, are for conservation of natural lands through the acquisition of fee title and conservation easements. Parks is proposing to use a small portion of those funds to support other public agency and nonprofit acquisition projects. There are no direct fiscal impacts from the Board's consideration of the program.
The Board approved the guidelines.
