PRACTICE

F. Board Approval of Land Transactions

The board reviews and approves every land and conservation agreement transaction, and the board is provided with timely and adequate information prior to final approval. However, the board may delegate decision-making authority on transactions if it establishes policies defining the limits to that authority, the criteria for transactions, the procedures for managing conflicts of interest, and the timely notification of the full board of any completed transactions, and if the board periodically evaluates the effectiveness of these policies.
