Water & Land Legacy Bond Public Review Board


The Water and Land Legacy Public Review Board is charged with reviewing and monitoring compliance with water quality, land protection, and trail and park improvements. The improvements were approved by Linn County voters in 2016 and funded through a $40 million dollar general obligation bond issuance backed by the full faith and credit of the County (e.g. taxable property in the county.) The Board of Supervisors appoints members. The 15-member board serves a three-year term. Members are limited to two consecutive terms.
