A Call To Action – Please Consider Attending!

A Call To Action – Please Consider Attending!

Attention all liberty-minded, limited government fiscally responsible citizens:

We need your presence at the Bonner County Commissioners Meeting on Tuesday March 22, 2016 @ 8:30 AM (1500 S. HWY, Sandpoint, ID) to voice your concerns about the Clagstone Conservation Easement currently be proposed for funding through the State Legislature.    Passage of this appropriation bill for this easement could have unknown lasting effects to the County, its tax base and funding for County services.

Issues of Concern:

  • The state legislature will be voting on an appropriation bill which contains a line item for $5 million for the Idaho Department of Lands (IDL) budget and $2 million for the Idaho Department of Fish and Game (IDFG) budget this week.  These public funds will go directly to a private company (Stimson Lumber) for a conservation easement on approximately 13,000 acres they own in south central Bonner County.  This proposed easement is being sought and supported by a diverse local coalition including the above two agencies and special interest environmental groups. The proposal plans to allow foot traffic for recreation on a portion of their property.
  • This appropriation is being rushed for quick passage while the easement is in a draft form only.  All Forest Legacy Program (administered by the Forest Service) projects require local government coordination and cooperation on these types of easements (your county,) but Bonner County Commissioners were never contacted by IDL, IDFG, USFS, Stimson Lumber Company or any other agency regarding this proposed easement action until early last week.
