Services, will lead to $2 million going into a trust fund that is used for purchases under the Florida Forever conservation program.
The amendment seeks to set aside 33 percent of the state's documentary stamp tax revenues fees paid when real estate is sold for 20 years for conservation. The amendment, which requires approval from 60 percent of voters to pass, could generate $10 billion over its life, the group says.
State officials said they could find other uses for the additional money.
The use of non conservation land to raise money for Forever Florida replaced a more controversial program abandoned earlier this year to raise the money by selling parcels the state has previously acquired for preservation.
State officials had sought at least $3.9 million for the land in 2011, but got to takers. The minimum bidding price was later lowered to $2.1 million and then $975,000.
The sale is a little more than double what the state had set as the minimum bid for the land.
"Amendment 1 will address a variety of needs," Abberger said. "It will help protect our state's drinking waters sources, the quality of our rivers and streams, and it will protect funding for restoration like Everglades restoration. We need more funding for all of those things."
The money headed to the trust fund has already topped a $40 million threshold that state lawmakers determined could be used for conservation purchases from the sale of non conservation parcels in the current fiscal year, which began July 1.
This was the state's third attempt to sell the land.
The purchaser, Strata Group LLC, plans to build 250 town homes, 380 apartments and a school for Nike Kyrie Irving 2 Shoes children with special needs on the 6.4 acre parcel and an adjacent 18.34 acres, according to state records.
Staff for the trust fund's Board of Trustees, which is made up of Scott and the Cabinet, recommended approval of the Broward land sale.
