Voters have decided ballot measures to create more than $5 billion in new funding for parks and open space, according to the Trust for Public Land and the Land Trust Alliance. At least 90 communities in 22 states will be voting on land conservation funding. In addition, voters in California, Nevada, and Virginia will vote Tuesday on statewide land protection funding measures. A complete list of all 93 local and state measures for conservation and parks is available from Land Vote 2002, a service of LTA and TPL. The results of Tuesday's vote will be available online soon after the balloting is completed and will be published as a report in early 2003. Most of the measures tabulated by Land Vote are bond measures to acquire land for parks and open space.
