Legacy Land Conservation Commission
About the Legacy Land Conservation Commission (Updated May 3, 2019)
The Legacy Land Conservation Commission is a nine-member State commission created by Act 254, Session Laws of Hawai`i 2006, to advise the Board of Land and Natural Resources on projects proposed for funding under Chapter 173A, Hawai`i Revised Statutes (Acquisition of Resource Value Lands). Guided by the statutory priorities of Section 173A-2.6, the Commission conducts a grant application process, public review of applications, and decision making with staff support from the Legacy Land Conservation Program, Division of Forestry and Wildlife.

On April 18, 2019, the State Senate confirmed Governor Ige’s four nominees for new terms on the Legacy Land Conservation Commission. We welcome new Commissioners BERYL BLAICH (Kaua`i) and CHRISTIANE LUCAS (O`ahu), returning Commissioner JOHN SINTON (O`ahu, former selectee from the Natural Area Reserves System Commission), and reappointed Commissioner JACOB TAVARES (Maui).
