Early voting starts today, Monday, October 22nd, for the Travis County Bond Election. The Save Our Springs Alliance Board voted to support Proposition B, Dam7 2which, in addition to general parkland acquisitions and improvements, will dedicate over $16 million towards conservation easements aimed at preserving open space and protecting water quality. As many areas within the county lack land use controls, conservation easements are some of the most effective tools we have to protect environmentally sensitive lands and mitigate against the consequences of overdevelopment.
