Driven by the leadership of long-time supporter Diana Cecala and President Emeritus, Dr. Thomas Steinberg, EVLT led a community-wide effort to create a dedicated source of funds at the county level to acquire open space and conserve it for the benefit of the citizens of Eagle County. A citizen-drafted ballot initiative was undertaken, and in the Fall of 2002, Referendum 1H was passed to establish a dedicated mill levy specifically ear-marked for open space projects in our community.
