More Green Through Amendment Four?

The Citizens for Conservation Land are supporting Amendment 4 to Florida's Consitituion. You can read the full text of at amendment4florida.

If approved by at least 60% of Florida's voters, it will do two things:

  • exempt land that is permanently set aside for conservation from all property taxes
  • allow land that is being used for conservatin purposes, but which hasn't been permanently set aside, to be taxed according to its conservation use.
We know that, as Florida continues to grow, valuable green spaces are being converted to other uses. Supporters say that this Amendment will encourage private landowners to preserve wildlife habitats and water resources. It is supported by Florida's leading conservation groups and the Florida Chamber of Commerce.
