Land Protection Funds Reorganized; Three Preservation Capital Projects Approved

Tuesday, December 3, 2019

In a series of resolutions, all approved without dissent, the Legislature approved the restructuring of the County’s land protection funds and authorized funding for three projects under the revised capital structure.  The balance of funds in the Capital Reserve Fund for Natural, Scenic, and Recreational Resource Protection (just over $65,000) has been transferred to the Natural Infrastructure Capital Program, reorganizing and consolidating the funds into a single unified land acquisition program.

Approved were support for three permanent preservation acquisition projects through the Finger Lakes Land Trust:  $25,000 for the Summerland Farm and $7,500 for the Shindagin Hollow—Brown Easement projects, both located in the Town of Caroline; and $100,000 toward the Cayuga Cliffs Land and Water Protection Project in the Town of Lansing.
