Open Space Referenda
Open Space Referenda

Public agencies often need to ask voters for permission to raise funds to acquire property for forest preserves and parks. At The Conservation Foundation, we have become skilled at providing invaluable support to public agencies seeking to pass these measures, including conducting voter polling, organizing a Neighbors for Open Space campaign committee, raising funds and running successful campaigns. To date, we are 12-for-12, raising more than $700 million for open space in largely conservative counties.
