Cheers: To Legacy Lands. The Clark County council is considering 12 conservation projects that would expand public trails and parks, protect fish habitat and preserve natural resource land. The plan, which was recommended by the county’s Parks Advisory Board, would cost an estimated $19.7 million for land acquisition and the purchase of easements, with an estimated $9 million coming from county-issued bonds. Other funding would come from the county’s Conservation Futures tax levy, local jurisdictions, and possibly grants.
