acquisition process can be lengthy, complex and completion can take up to a year.Luckily, this acquisition was already through most
of
the internal process when the grant wasoffered. There will be more opportunities to protect more lands within the CZM area for ourstate park system. The timing can be a challenge, but the efforts I find worthwhile.
