The secondary review is based on a physical site visit to the real property. The property is scored according to size, contiguity, habitat for plants and animals, significance for water resources, ease of management, recreation potential and development status.

Site inspections are waived on certain parcels that fall into the Corkscrew Regional Ecosystem Watershed (CREW), located in the southeast area of Lee County. These visits may be waived due to the difficulty of either physically locating sites or lack of physical access to them.  

Example Secondary Review Form

Based upon the findings of the Secondary Review, the Conservation 20/20 citizen advisory committee, aka CLASAC, makes recommendations to either forward to the Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) for potential acquisition (negotiation) or to reject parcels. If the CLASAC recommends potential acquisition, the BOCC will be presented with the CLASAC recommendation before authorizing County Lands staff to commence negotiation.
