Land Acquisition

The Environmental Lands Acquisition and Management Program (ELAMP) was created in July of 2004 when Pasco County adopted Referendum No. 04-233.  ELAMP is responsible for purchasing environmentally sensitive lands throughout the County by either fee title or less-than-fee methods.  Funding is provided through a portion of the Penny For Pasco surtax.  Partnerships with state and federal agencies are sought to supplement the Penny funds.  Since 2005, approximately 2,891 acres have been acquired.
