Polk County supervisors approved placing a $50 million bond question on Iowa’s Nov. 6 ballot to finance conservation improvements and recreational projects over the next two decades.

The ballot language outlines how the funds would go to the purchase and acquisition and development of land for public parks, or other recreation or conservation purposes managed by the Polk County Conservation Board.

Projects would also include waterway and trail improvements along with flood prevention.

The measure would result in a $9 increase for homeowners with an assessed value of $100,000.
