BALLOT MEASURES FOR CONSERVATION
On November 8, 2022, Dorchester County residents will have the opportunity to vote on the renewal of a 1% tax used for financing the cost of local greenbelt initiatives. This special tax program will allow for the continued protection of County land, water, and wildlife while creating additional public places for outdoor recreation.
“Dorchester is among the fastest growing counties in the United States. To balance that growth we must protect the land that is foundational to the health of our waterways, ecosystems, and communities while creating more public spaces for people to enjoy.”
