Maine voters in 1987 approved a $35 million bond issue to buy pristine parcels of significant land, and the Land for Maine's Future Board carried out its mandate by acquiring some 50 parcels. LMFB today has just $700,000, but despite the lack of funds board coordinator Mark Desmeules isn't discouraged. Two attempts in the early 1990s to gain money through bond issues for the board failed, but another effort is pending in the Maine Legislature, for possible inclusion on the November ballot. The board has set aside more than 60,000 acres in eight years, and saved more than 140 miles of waterfront. Details, list of LMFB properties.
