Open Space Preservation Funding Amendment


This constitutional amendment would provide funding for Green Acres and “Blue Acres” projects. The projects preserve open space, farmland, and historic properties. The amendment would dedicate 6% of Corporation Business Tax revenue each year for the next 30 years for these purposes. The Green Acres program buys land that protects water supplies and preserves open space. The program funds parks, fish and wildlife habitat, and flood prone or affected areas. It also funds park improvements and facilities. “Blue Acres” refers to properties that have been damaged by storms or storm related flooding. The program also purchases properties that appear likely to incur such damage, or that may buffer or protect other lands from such damage. Structures on properties purchased from willing sellers are demolished, the debris is removed, and the land is preserved as open space. This amendment also would end the current dedication of 4% of Corporation Business Tax revenue. That dedication provides funds for water quality programs, public and private hazardous site cleanups, underground storage tank removal and cleanup, air pollution control equipment for diesel engines, and park improvements and facilities. Finally, this amendment would dedicate natural resource damages and fines collected from violations of environmental laws for underground storage tank removals and cleanups and State-funded hazardous site cleanups.
