Organization of the Lake County Conservation District
Conservation Districts are political subdivisions of the State of Colorado. The authority's power and structure are contained in the Colorado Revised Statutes, Title 35, Article 70.
The Lake County Conservation District was established by a referendum of landowners on January 30th, 1950. All incorporated municipalities and areas devoted exclusively to commercial and industrial uses, as they existed at the time the original District was formed, were excluded from the District.
