Conservation Funding

Dover has a long history of protecting open land through the purchase of conservation easements. The Open Lands Committee was created to lead that effort. 100% of Current Use Penalty payments are deposited in the Conservation Fund, except for the first $75,000 which is transferred to the General Fund to partially pay for a City Planner. Revenues have decreased in recent years as the amount of land in Current Use declines. The OLC has several land protection projects that can’t proceed due to a lack of funds. The Conservation Fund balance is $109,000. Land conservation helps to mitigate climate change impacts.
