Why Vote Yes for
Polk County’s Water & Land Legacy?

  • Protecting Sources of Clean Drinking Water
    Access to clean drinking water is imperative. This initiative seeks to protect the water quality of our rivers, lakes, and streams, including the Des Moines and Raccoon Rivers and their tributaries.

  • Protecting Natural Areas & Preventing Flooding
    Protecting the wildlife habitat surrounding our waterways will help sustain our water quality goals. The bond will help preserve natural areas and encourage access to more outdoor recreational opportunities like hiking, picnicking, and shore fishing. We also plan to expand educational resources on nature conservation for children.

  • Save Wildlife Habitat for Future Generations
    We additionally want to create improved opportunities for people to enjoy our natural waterways. This bond will help improve public access to both the Raccoon and Des Moines rivers to provide opportunities like floating, canoeing, boating, and fishing. This includes measures to help prevent flooding.

  • Accountability measures to ensure funds are properly spent
    Funds can be used solely for the purposes stated in the referendum and cannot be used for any other purposes. Full public disclosure of all expenditures will be required. There will be an annual independent audit of how the funds are spent. 91 cents a month is a very small price to pay to provide adequate parks and trails and to protect some of the last remaining natural areas and parkland in Polk County.
