In 2002, and again in 2006, Collier County voters agreed by ballot referendum to a property tax increase of $25 per $100,000 of taxable property value, for up to 10 years, to fund the land acquisition program known as Conservation Collier.
In 2020, a referendum question has been placed on the general election ballot asking voters to once again decide whether or not they agree to reestablish the ad valorem millage of 0.25 mills, and continue to pay an additional $25 per $100,000 of taxable property value to fund the Conservation Collier program for a period of 10 years.

If the November 2020 referendum passes, revenues collected for Conservation Collier will be used as follows: *

  • 65-75% will be used to acquire new preserve land
  • up to 10% will be used to fund public amenities at preserves (may include boardwalks, facilities, parking, interpretive programming, etc.)
  • 25% will be used for management of acquired preserve lands – A majority of the management funds will be placed in a trust fund that will generate interest for annual management activities so that the program can operate in perpetuity using only the taxes collected over the 10 year period authorized by the referendum.

As of September 2020, taxpayers have funded over $106 million in land acquisitions.
