Update October 24: A measure that would ask voters to approve $20 million more for Beafufort County's Rural and Critical Land Preservation´╗┐ program is headed for debate at today's county council meeting.

First reporting August 12: Word is a third referendum asking Beaufort County residents to foot the bill for land preservation could be brought before voters very soon.
