In cities across America, too many neighborhoods struggle with undue concentrations of stagnation, disinvestment and poverty. Past decisions have led to disparities in community opportunities. Land trusts need to help ensure that new investments in parks benefit everyone, especially the people and families who need it most. Most funding for parks is generated through voter-approved measures at the state and local level. In 2019, voters approved 33 of 41 measures, creating nearly $1 billion for new parks, the protection of water quality, natural areas and working farms and ranches in seventeen states. In New Orleans and Pittsburgh, important ballot measures that will intentionally direct funding to park-underserved areas of those communities passed. Since 1988, voters in cities, counties, and states have approved over 2,000 ballot measures, creating $80 billion in new funding for parks and conservation. Land trusts have been involved in many of these successful ballot measures, developing their advocacy chops and, in some cases, truly transforming their organizations. This workshop provides land trusts with the tools needed to lead or support ballot measures. Learn from communities that have successfully taken their case to the voters to create new funding for historically park under-served neighborhoods.
