Martin County Passes Resolution Requesting Amendment 1 Funding for Land Acquisition in Florida

Dear FCC Members,

With the Florida Conservation Coalition’s encouragement, Martin County has adopted a resolution (attached) urging the Florida Legislature to allocate $300 million annually from the Land Acquisition Trust Fund (Amendment 1 funds) to the Florida Forever program for conservation land acquisition. This resolution is an important step toward protecting Florida’s natural areas and the vast natural resources and economic benefits they provide. We applaud Martin County’s accomplishment and urge other counties to follow in its footsteps.
