Final Council recommendation (Nov 2006)

Funding category: Expense

Recommended budgets: FY07: $0 | FY08: $0 | FY09: $0


ISRP final recommendation: Not fundable


This is a two-paragraph proposal to acquire 2560 acres of Plum Creek land with about 5.5 miles of streams. The narrative is incomplete, with only the section on Personnel being filled out, so there is insufficient information to evaluate it. The form provides some useful information, but even though this is primarily a simple land purchase, there needs to be some real background, justification, and estimates of potential benefits provided. Sponsors are directed to proposal 200719400 as a model proposal for a similar such land acquisition proposal in which the background and justification for the purchase is well done.
